Dealing with bought furniture that wasn't how you expected it to be.

Dealing with bought furniture that wasn't how you expected it to be.
Decorating is often trial and error. Sometimes you buy something that just doesn't work in the space you had in mind. Either it is too big, too small or just something that doesn't quite match everything else you have at home. In my case it was this rococo style stool. It has looked 80 percent smaller in the Gumtree Advertisement, so I had pictured...

Curve Side Collection Makeovers

Curve Side Collection Makeovers
Most people are throwing out old and broken furniture during curb side collection times. However, I personally like to pick something up. Usually a table or a seat. This time it was this little stool from the home across the street. The varnish on the legs had worn out. The bolts holding the legs to the seat base were loose. A hinge was broken. The...

Quick, Easy and Beautiful Cabinet Make Over

Quick, Easy and Beautiful Cabinet Make Over
I recently stumbled upon these hand painted ceramic cabinet knobs in a wide array of colours and designs, and I thought they were perfect for improving those old boring all wooden bedside tables I have at home.   Easy enough to change the handles over, as usually there is only a screw in the back that holds in each wooden cabinet knob. Fi...

My Top 10 Favourite Gumtree Search Terms

My Peacock Philosophy to Home Decorating - Where/How to start decorating?

My Peacock Philosophy to Home Decorating - Where/How to start decorating?

Getting the right Display Cabinet

Getting the right Display Cabinet
If you enjoy collecting lots of little decorations and knick knacks wherever you go, you probably need or have at least one display cabinet.  Display cabinets should always be elegant and not over bearing. They hold things that are too nice to use or actually have no use other than just looking nice, or are too fidgety to dust once in a w...

Decorate by Creating Three Act Structures

Decorate by Creating Three Act Structures
  There are two ways people approach decorating their homes. One way is you find something you like, and think where can I put it. The other way is you examine the spaces of your home and draw rough conclusions on what would fit well. Personally I do the latter to take advantage of the former. A key component to making these decorating decisio...
