We wanted am industrial style table and benches for our kitchen, so found the table and benches in the first pic on gumtree. Originally from Ikea, the frame was solid but the table and bench tops left something to be desired. So we bought some scaffold boards from a reclaim yard. Lew has spent the last couple of hours cutting and sanding them and has just finished the project. Just needs a few coats of natural beeswax to seal the surfaces but we are sooo pleased with the result of our Monday Makeover! #mondaymakeover #renovation #houserenovations #makingahouseourhome #3bedsemi #interiordesign #industrial
When you can pick out new hardwood floors without hesitating... on top of all the 💰 it is to move into a new home. 🏡 And the same month as Christmas. 💸🎅🎄💸🤦🏻‍♀️ . And know that your kids (& hubby’s) allergies will be far better off because of it. ❤️. . That’s why I do this. 💙 A way for me to make extra income while being home so much more. I’m blown away by what this has given me. 🥰 . . Don’t get me wrong, it takes some grit, some rejection, and some after hours commitment here and there. But judging from what I’m able to experience today with 👧🏻&👦🏻, it’s incredibly worth it. 💙. . . . #becauseofsenegence #herewegrowagain #lovethislifestyle #momswhohustle #makingahouseourhome #workfromhomemom #magnoliahome #movinghouse #momlifebelike #boymomlife #girlmama #budgeproofmakeup #longlastinglipcolor
That’s one side of the wardrobe complete 😁 This means one less piece of furniture to shift when the carpets get put in - whoo! Now just the other side to tackle... Oh I can’t wait for carpet, it’s going to be dreamy 😌. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wardrobes #builtinwardrobes #diydrew #newwardrobes #builtthemourselves #bedroom #sparebedroom #secondbedroom #wardrobegoals #carpet #newcarpet #decor #homedecor #decorinspo #interiorinspo #homerenovation #houserenovation #interiors #paintcolours #colourmatch 1950shome #1950shouse #homeinspo #interioraddict #myhomestyle #myhomevibe #makingahouseahome #makingahouseourhome
A non-stop weekend for myself and @bencaton_training but so thankful to finally be in our new home! Can’t believe how much we are in love with this house, it was worth not settling till we found “the one” ❤️. Thanks to everyone that has helped us with the move, we’ve had some lovely cards and presents already, we truly are so lucky! Here’s a to our first Christmas, now lets get a Christmas tree in that Bay Window 😍. #newhome #newchapter #makingahouseourhome
Love a before and after.... not quite finished yet. Still some finishing touches to be made but loving the transformation so far ❤😍 #panelling #panels #dining #diningarea #diningtable #rustic #rustictable #transformation #housedecor #makingahouseourhome #thecharlesfamily #beforeandafter
I got quoted between £1000 and £2000 to get this done! I did it myself and it cost £150 at the most! #diy @homebase_uk #loveit #drive #stones #rewarding #home #makingahouseourhome
Hi! 👋🏼 Remember me? We took a few days off to move into a new (to us) house and it couldn’t feel more like home. ❤️ . We are so excited to build new memories and make it ours. A move with toddlers isn’t easy but man was it the right decision for us. 👧🏻👦🏻 . So excuse the silence and lighter posts as I dig out from the 📦 📦 andddd get us decorated for 🎅🎄!! . . Giving myself so much Grace right now. Family first. It’s why I do this in the first place! 💙. . . . . #familyfirst #livewithgrace #newhomefun #magnoliafarmobsessed #magnoliahome #workfromhomemom #momlifebelike #tiredasamother #movinghouse #makingahouseourhome
Everything is finally coming together and being a home 🏠 in LOVE with my sofa from @sofology and my wallpaper from @ilovewallpaper.co.uk LOVE IT ALL!!!! We are nearly there and I can’t wait to be snuggled down on this sofa with my man and our babies ❤️ . . . #homerenovation #home #athome #couplesfirsthome #firsthome #firsttimehomebuyer #decoration #decorating #followfollow #followme #makingahouseourhome #projecthome #interiordesign #interiors #interiorinspo #interiorstyling #interior123 #interior125 #homeproject #property #renovation #renovations #renovationproject #renovationlife #renovationideas #greysofa #greywallpaper
This is the result of me and Lewis being curious at what lies underneath a carpet which is a lovely sapphire blue but has seen better days. We love it!!! #realwoodfloor #stripitback #3bedsemi #houserenovations #makingahouseourhome #interiordesign #interior4u #homeinspo
DIY adventures—new flooring in the guest bath. We obviously need to finish putting it completely back together, but so far so good!!
So on top of writing music for the album and work, I've been slowly but steadily renovating our first home & I feel like we're finally starting to get somewhere 😁 Really trying to bring it back to its former glory #houserenovation #openfire
And so it begins! Phase 1- Planking the fireplace, building a mantle, replacing the lights, and painting the room white is this weekend’s project. Phase 2- Will start after we replace all the floors in the house. Built in bookcases and desks for the kids on each side of the fireplace. Swipe over to see a sketch I drew for Steve. I never use a ruler so my lines are all wonky... But he gets the idea and knows how to bring my crazy ideas to life. Love having such a handy husband! Expect lots of picture updates this weekend. 😊 All so I can hang my stockings. 😂 #makingahouseourhome #handyhubby
It’s finally Friday ! Can not wait until after Christmas to change this horrible flooring going for something lighter to go with the rest of the room 💖😊#crushedvelevet #greyinterior #lotsofsparkle #interior #cosyhome #lanterns #homedecor #homeinterior #lanterns #makingahouseourhome
My son really wanted to use these little ornaments I had and my daughter really wanted to hang a paper garland she made. So we found a space and made it happen. New blog post up now about something all kids need that we are often hesitant or selfish to give. ❤ #jcottchristmas #makingahouseourhome #blog #encourageyourkids
Plasterer has done most of the hall, stairs, landing and ceiling, just one more wall to do #houserenovation #plastering #makingahouseourhome #makingahouseahome #1960s #1960sbuild
All decorated! My son picked out the tree topper because apparently we didn't have one! I love watching my kids get excited about this time of year. Everything brings such joy and laughter. Stay tuned for those clothes pins behind the tree to fill up as we start advent. #makingahouseourhome #jcottchristmas #alltheglitter

He’s a real good man. After working all day today, he happily agreed to hang my chandelier for me. Thank you @brighteventproductions for the flamingo chand!! #decorating #artroom #creativespaces #makingahouseourhome #hellmichssettleintheoc
And so it begins. First snow of the season means all bundled up and having fun. And I've got the water on for hot chocolate whenever they come in. #makingahouseourhome #wintersnow #jcottsiblings
Still got some bits to do but considering this was just magnolia a couple of weeks ago, we're pretty proud! Roll on January when we can get a new floor 😍. #musicroom #creative #makingahouseourhome
**FILTHY ANIMAL** I’m getting so excited for Christmas and can’t wait to get the tree up BUT I will wait for December 😂. I want to switch it up a little but don’t know what to do with my colour scheme... a night browsing insta for inspiration it is ☺️🎄 . . . . . . . . . #newbuildlove #bathroom #decor #familyhome #beautiful #instahomes #homeinspo #house #home #bedroomgoals #homestyle #livingroominspo #bed #bedroom #ensuite #homedecor #interior4you #bedtime #ensuite #newbuildjourney #makingahouseourhome #pinkandgrey #bathroom #tiles #myhome #instadecor #christmas #christmasdecor #christmastree
I didn’t realize how badly my self control would be tested when I committed to not decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. But, I’m happy to report I’m still holding strong. In the mean time I think I’ll start listening to some Christmas music🤗🎶 I need some recommendations, what’s your favorite holiday album? . . . #madenew #madenewhome #myfarmhousestyle #thefarmhouseclub #decoratewithvintage #shiplapfireplace #paintedtile #paintedmantel #fireplacemakeover #farmhousefireplace #vintagemirror #woodsandwhites #decoratingwithbooks #chairmakeover #reupholstered #chalkpaintedfurniture #diypillows #fireplacedecor #manteldecor #farmhousedecormonday #rusticfarmcharm #iadorefarmhousedecor #alabasterwhite #farmhousegreenerylove #makingahouseourhome #decoratingonadime #farmhouselivingroom
Coffee? Where's the coffee? We got about 2 hours sleep last night because poor J had such a temperature that he was hallucinating. It was heart breaking as he was convinced there were dinosaurs under the covers so would only sleep up on our pillows 🙄 I've kept him off school today as he is shattered so he's pottering with Lego behind me while I work. Do you like the bedroom so far? We aren't finished but it does at least feel cosy and bit organised x
After 2 months.. we are finally back in our living room❤️ a lot of time and effort has gone into redecorating and making our house a home 🏡💑 #hardworkpaysoff #homerenovation #makingahouseourhome
T I L I N G So, we originally thought “oh a Saturday tiling and DEFINITELY done on sunday.” YEAH RIGHT! We will be tiling well into next week! Although we did buy an electric tile saw today. We needed to cut C’s in the tiles to go around sockets. Hopefully! By next weekend we will have completed tiling.... or maybe by the end of the year? • • • • • • #progressnotperfection #makingahouseourhome #renovationlife #home #practical #tiling #tilingworks #kitchendecor #kitchendesign #kitchen #newskill #weekend #productive #productiveday #reno #renovation #1930renovation #housebeautiful #housetohome
Time to carry on painting 👩🏼‍🎨 We will finish this room...one day... I hope 👀
Two of my favorite words. I LOVE the way these letters turned out! Two coats of paint and done! Shout out to Tommy for hanging the shelves in my office. I promised to not load them down too much 😏 so I'm keeping it simple: 'Read' with a few of my favorite classics and 'Write' with a small collection of empty journals just waiting. #mywritermomlife #makingahouseourhome #homeoffice #amwriting #amreading
A F T E R & B E F O R E (PROGRESS) So this weekend skill is learning how to tile! We are practising on the kitchen to begin with before we eventually attack the bathroom! We have used the cosmopolitan tiles from @wickesdiy because we thought the bevelled edges of metro tiles may prove tricky to line up! We are using white tiles and will be using black grout and silicon! • • • • • #kitchendesign #kitchentiling #tiling #weekend #weekendwork #renovation #reno #kitchenrenovation #white #newskill #everydayisaschoolday #progress #progressnotperfection #nofilter #kitchen #house #home #homebeautiful #kitcheninspo #renovationlife #renovationproject #ourhouse #makingahouseahome #makingahouseourhome #practice #practical #grout #diy #wickes #wickestiles
I need to give a huge shout out to my hubby who tackles so many of my “projects” with such trust in my vision. This antique chandelier was a piece I picked up second hand years ago, as I fell in love with it. The aged golden bronzed patina is second to none😍 It’s been in my storage pile ever since as I’ve been waiting for the right space for it. It needed a few replacement parts and rewiring before we even began to mess with hanging it in just the right way. But I think our patience has paid off as it feels perfectly at home over this huge dinning table space. I love how it adds drama to the large vaulted ceilings while grounding the table grouping beneath it. Thank you Neil Bullock for your support and faith in me and my never ending projects❤️ #makingahouseourhome #refinddecor #diy #yycinteriordecorator #antiqueindustrial

This sweet little bungalow with built in shelving I never knew I needed.

DIY backyard makeover update: 1 roll of plastic, bricks came with the house, 2 truckloads of free mulch, 3 strings of lights, 2 poles, 3 hooks, and various fasteners. Total spent so far approx. $75. But....lesson learned, poles are not tall enough, we thought 8 feet would work. Going to replace with 10-foot poles. Stay tuned for an update soon. PS-New projects coming soon. PPS: Thank you so much to @tonyhouska14 @shistersophie06 @skyline_r30jew @mike122825 @imakeyourmomsmile for all your hard work. #diyonthecheap #cheapandfreeisforme #makingahouseourhome #firepitsoon #table #stumpsforstools #freebies @funcheaporfree #withlovefromtexas 💙
“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10 . “Your weaknesses don’t disqualify you. They actually qualify you even more, because they are the portals through which God’s power permeates your life.” {Taken from the Un(qualified) devotion in the Bible App}.

Just cracked open one of my birthday Jo Mo’s and it smells devine 😌
I am beyond excited about my couch🤗🤗🤗 It took so long and I was hoping it was going to be worth it. I’m happy to report it was!!! Now that my living room feels bigger I’m contemplating a coffee table... {of course I’m not going to run out and buy a brand new one} but what are your thoughts? Does a living room need a coffee table? Should I start keeping my eyes open for one? . . . #madenew #madenewhome #livingroominspiration #farmhouselivingroom #woodsandwhites #basketwall #basketlove #deconstructedfurniture #reupholstered #furnitureflip #reupholsteredfurniture #deconstructedcouch #deconstructedsofa #antiquecouch #vintagecouch #tuftedsofa #diyhomedecor #vintageinterior #showusthevintage #whitewallshome #gossipbench #fixerupperstyle #vintageisbetter #reupholsteryproject #makingahouseourhome #diyhomeprojects #diyfarmhouse

Before and after of Parker’s room, his room is finally done!

Another poundstretcher bargain today. Love this 😍. No idea where to put them though 🙈 #hincharmy #poundstretcher #makingahouseourhome
T h e B e d r o o m The wallpaper is up!! Not bad for our first attempt at wallpapering if I do say myself because honestly we didn’t have a clue 🙈🤣 loving this wallpaper from @ilovewallpaper.co.uk , it catches the light and shimmers with glitter along with the gorgeous wavy holographic detail! 😍 absolutely in love 😍 #firsthome #interiors #interiorstyling #decorating #decoratingonabudget #interiordecorating #budgethomes #renovation #houserenovation #homerenovation #makingahouseahome #makingahouseourhome #stairsdesign #stairs #stairsandlanding #cleaning #cleanhome #cleaningobsessed #wallpaper #blownvinyl #happyhome #lovemyhome #homerevamp #budgethomes #homesonabudget #greyhomes #greyinteriors #greyobsessed #ilovewallpaper
T h e B e d r o o m The horrible carpet has finally been ripped up and the wallpaper has been stripped off!! 😀 yay!! Luckily we didn’t need a replaster even though we have had a full rewire of the house!! 👍🏼 First coat of grey on in the colour chic shadow by @duluxuk now to wait for it to dry and on with the 2nd coat! #firsthome #interiors #interiorstyling #decorating #decoratingonabudget #interiordecorating #budgethomes #renovation #houserenovation #homerenovation #makingahouseahome #makingahouseourhome #stairsdesign #stairs #stairsandlanding #cleaning #cleanhome #cleaningobsessed #wallpaper #blownvinyl #happyhome #lovemyhome #homerevamp #budgethomes #homesonabudget #greyhomes #greyinteriors #greyobsessed #duluxpaint #chicshadow
L i v i n g R o o m T h r o u g h D i n i n g R o o m Big plans for this room ☺️ the fire place and chimney breast will be coming out to make the room bigger! We will be putting up a stud wall in between the dining room and living area making two separate rooms so we can then enlarge the small kitchen into a kitchen diner! I love the large windows in this room and how much light they let in 😍 another lot of carpets that have to go! #firsthome #interiors #interiorstyling #decorating #decoratingonabudget #interiordecorating #budgethomes #renovation #houserenovation #homerenovation #makingahouseahome #makingahouseourhome #stairsdesign #stairs #stairsandlanding #cleaning #cleanhome #cleaningobsessed #wallpaper #blownvinyl #happyhome #lovemyhome #homerevamp #budgethomes #homesonabudget #greyhomes #greyinteriors #greyobsessed
T h e G u e s t B e d r o o m Decent size and I love the view across the fields from this room! 😍 another horrible stained carpet! Can’t wait to get stuck into this room!

S t a I r s A n d L a n d I n g Beautiful blown vinyl wallpaper that will need to be stripped off.. no doubt it’s been on for the last 39 million years and will be an absolute nightmare to remove 🤯 but at least there is no wood chip on the ceiling!! Can’t wait to get stuck into this and make it something beautiful! #firsthome #interiors #interiorstyling #decorating #decoratingonabudget #interiordecorating #budgethomes #renovation #houserenovation #homerenovation #makingahouseahome #makingahouseourhome #stairsdesign #stairs #stairsandlanding #cleaning #cleanhome #cleaningobsessed #wallpaper #blownvinyl #happyhome #lovemyhome #homerevamp #budgethomes #homesonabudget
🍂🍃🍁🍃🍂 . One of my favorite things about our home are these stone pavers. I love that they add texture to our walkway but most off all I love the moss that grows! . What are you’re favorite things about your home that might be uniquely odd?!
Art room update: almost done!!! Craig says I will be able to move in this weekend. Finishing up some drywall and trim. #makingahouseourhome #hellmichssettleintheoc #abigetsherartroom #hardworkingmen
I have been decorating my house [yep, I’m that girl] since Saturday! Typically I’m finished in a day but with myself & Ellie Joy being sick, it has just taken longer this year BUT, I need y’alls opinions!! Tell me below whether you like the entryway with the tree (adding burlap to it) or the tin with the cross?!? I just love this time of year! 🎄 • • • #theperfectlyimperfectmama #homesweethome #christmashomedecor #christmas #makingahouseourhome #instahomedecor
Finally able to sit and watch some TV with a glass of champagne after a busy 4 days of moving and settling in. Also, blinds are finally up after what seems like forever of waiting for the delivery 😊 There’s still loads to do but everything is coming together #persimmonhomes #familyhome #makingahouseourhome #blindstogo #fauxwood #venetianblinds #husbandsjobs P.S my daughter did the light board 👍🏼
