Recently I have done a mini makeover in my bedroom. What sparked my motivation (not that I need much when it comes to decorating) was that I had my beautiful new curtains installed a few weeks ago! They are stunning, just what I wanted. I'd been waiting a while to be able to afford to have the style I'd dreamt of! They are an S fold style on a double track with sheers overlaying a full block-out curtain at the back. The room feels so luxurious now.

A big thanks to Sarah and Michelle at Bendigo Curtains for making these beauties @
If your needing curtains or blinds or help designing the right window furnishings for your home go and see Sarah and the crew. They have moved into their brand new showroom on High Street in Bendigo, next door to where I work actually. It has been fun helping them design and furnish the fit out the Hi-Light Blinds/Bendigo Curtains new showroom with gorgeous things from my work @

Other things that are new to the room are the bedsides, they were once dowdy old brown ones I picked up second hand that I have brought to life with some paint and handles. I also had this beautiful green leaf fabric that I made a cushion cover out of.  Now I am on the look out for two new reading lamps that fit in with my style to finish off the look!

It is quite a hard room to photograph as it's small and all that light flooding through, well just makes it difficult so i have done my best with the photos!
Hope you like it!

I put up our Christmas Tree 3 weeks ago! I know, I know, very early but I was inspired after reading a Chrissy magazine and knowing all the weekends leading up to the big day were fully booked out for us that it may be the last lazy Sunday I had to do it! I didn't put much out this year as you will see, it only took me the afternoon and I must say I felt so organised after it was all complete knowing I had many weeks to enjoy it and there wasn't going to be a rush to put the tree up!

I decided that I was going to go with a theme of copper and white. I wasn't prepared to do-away with all the decorations I already had and buy new, I think that's a little extravagant as I would be likely to change the theme again another year. Instead I spray painted some of my old non-sentimental ones copper keeping aside all my white ones I already had and then I bought a few new ones as well.

It was a little windy outside so I set up to spray inside, not a great idea… it was getting a little foggy and the copper overspray would quickly ruin my kitchen! So I made a booth, just one of those plastic storage containers on its side, popped a box inside that that had been poked with toothpicks to rest some decorations on and got spraying outside this time! HaHa

I was really pleased with the result and no one knows they weren't bought that way!

Sorry its been a while since my last post, with everything nearly done around here (except the front yard our next project) I haven't had a lot to blog about. However I am popping the odd thing up on Insta/FB so please check out my pages and follow me!

I came across this pine dresser last month (probably about 10 years old) on a buy and sell page. I'd been on the look out for some type of tallboy or dresser for my bedroom and thought this one had nice clean lines with a straight bevelled edge on the drawer (not rolled) so it was a little more modern straight away. With a few coats of white paint and some new knobs I thought it had heaps of potential so I bought it!
It was fairly easy to paint, I did three coats of white satin after a light sand and undercoat. It only took a few hours of work in total but in-between coats and our busy schedule it was a few weekends to finally get it in my room and filled. I'm really happy with the end result and it fits in our room nicely.
Enjoy the before and afters below!

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, I certainly did finishing off this and a few other little jobs around here…
