Antique desk makeover to die for!

From seriously damaged, to seriously gorgeous, this antique desk makeover is one of my favourite before and afters of all time!

Speaking of love; I LOVE today’s makeover.

Since nothing […]

Hot Tub Makeover

Updating an old hot tub to a sleek new colour and more energy efficient functioning is as easy as a few DIY steps you can do in a weekend!  My hot tub makeover included new insulation, a thorough clean, new filter, waterproof stain and some decorative planters.

This project has been a bit of a comedy of errors;  I wanted to stain my hot tub, and I certainly needed to repair/rebuild the planters – but the hot tub makeover kept evolving […]
