TIME for a freshen up and a rethink at home before the summer starts and we get bogged down with Christmas, the long school holidays, and lying on the beach in the sunshine.
Here are a couple of projects we have undertaken in the past few weeks:
First a laundry renovation.....
This was a tiny space off a hallway, a laundry in a double-doored cupboard.
It was out with the old laundry cupboard and tub and in with some deep storage drawers, a full width bench and a new sink. The clothes dryer was mounted on the wall and the back wall retiled . A new tap finished the smart new look.
It is now a fully functional working space with plenty of storage.
Next was the challenge of what to do with Grandma's old wing-back chair. That chair had been part of the family for 50 years.
It was always the 'go to' chair when the owner wanted to curl up with a good book. Several layers of 'do it yourself' reupholstery were ripped off, a new seat cushion supplied and a new fabric selected to co-ordinate with the lounge suite. The result is a smart new chair, new enough to look right in place in a modern home, old and familiar enough to cherish the precious memories of its past and a beloved Grandma.
