lovemyrenovations

The front of the Old House has changed since last week! My hubbie and the builders cleared this area in the pouring rain! 40 tonnes of earth had to be removed and we found the houses air bricks that are supposed to be kept clear to allow air to circulate! Obviously earth had built up over the years but now it’s gone. I took the decision to remove all shrubs along one side apart from a 10ft orange blossom which was too lovely! Over the weekend I’ve been removing all the roots from this area and it’s been back breaking! I know it will be worth it though. We can’t progress with this area though until the skip has gone. That can’t go until the kitchen is in and that is now coming on Thursday. I’m going to have a patio and path nearest the house and the wooden beds are for planting. I would love all your thought on what to plant here. I have my own ideas of a formal garden with box, white Annabelle hydrangeas and lavender. Along the side I’m thinking white barked birch trees and lots of white and purple bulbs like iris and tulips. I would also like a metal archway and large bay trees in pots. Not much then! 🤣😂 Anyway have a great day! mygloriousgardens storyofmyhome Verdant (not yet!) myhomedownsouth gardensgreatorsmall mydailyrenovation next big purchase periodhomesofinsta greathomestaketime englishcountrygarden myperiodhome inmygardentoday inmygarden formalgarden gardendesignideas plantingideas sorealhomes renovationproject creatingagarden urbangarden housetohome lovemyrenovation georgianhouse symmetricalgarden projecthome lovemyrenovation myhousethismonth

Good morning loves, up with the lark today for an epic Challenge Annika (Anneka?) style mission. I got my bestie coming tomorrow that I thought was coming on Wednesday and I don’t know about you but I always want everything as spic and span as it can be when we have people over. Soooooo today I have to paint all the new fence (you can see Boo perched on its brownness here), finish painting the wall, finish digging out my beds, tidy the patio which has taken the brunt of all the garden mayhem, do some tiling in the bathroom, clean and tidy the house from top to bottom and think about food. Can it be done? Course it can, this is me 🤷🏼‍♀️😘 have a good one loves 💕 . . . homereno theeverygirlathome abmathome homerenovation howyouhome howwedwell howihome gardenproject gardenmakeover diyaday diyonabudget dailydiy lovemyrenovation gingercat gingertom catsofinstagram shipshape furbaby dailydiy diyproject 1930shome 1930shouse renovationdiaries renovationproject seizetheday homemakeover linsgardenmakeover

I am so so happy with our second stairboxuk staircase! We took our first walk up it this evening and it's a dream! Not a single squeak! If we did the renovation again I would definitely get the first set wooden instead of MDF too. It's probably close to the biggest regret of mine during the renovation but if that's as bad as it gets then I think we're doing ok! • • •

The panelling is finished and sockets are on in lounge. Anyone who’s followed our journey for a while will know the dramas we’ve had with this room. It’s a really dark, north facing room which despite having a big window, doesn’t get any light. Originally we painted it a really light grey in an attempt to brighten it up, but it did exactly the opposite and looked even more sad and gloomy. So, we had a ‘sod it’ moment one day and decided embrace what we were given and paint it DARK. I mean, walls, ceiling, cupboards, ceiling rose, everything dark. And you know what? It’s never looked more cheery! God only knows how that works but it does. Also, anyone needing a recovery space for a hangover, I have the perfect place for you! Now on for lighting decisions...wish me luck!

And here is what we discovered over the upstair’s bedroom ceiling! We won’t be able to keep the roof as it is, we will have to put isolation because the roof is just a few centimeters behind BUT we will keep almost all the height, around 3m50 🙌 We also took down 2 walls so we will have a bit more space in the bedroom to cover a wall with a wardrobe! And we also have a little balcony with a nice view! I can’t wait to sleep in there but first...loads of work to do 💪

We have gates!! (SWIPE to see the front of our house before.) It’s looking so much better. We still need to plant some hedging & paint the house. It’s just nice having a physical barrier as we live on a main road. The reassurance that the dog or a rogue football can’t escape on to the road, both of which have previously happened 🙈. .

🔲 Reflection 🔲 - I found these 3 mirrors in dunelmuk last week - bargain! They are for our bathroom, which the plumber assures me will be finished some time next week. At the moment it seems a long way from being finished (no floor, holes in walls, bath still in bedroom etc) but I can't wait to hang these 😁

I felt today needed an appreciation post for this amazing man 💌 Over the last six months we’ve been doing this renovation on the weekends in between full time jobs and while I’ve been moaning and grumbling constantly about how tired and stressed I am, he’s hardly ever complained. Instead he’s gotten down to business and got it done, no matter how long it takes - and now it’s starting to take shape and look like the home of our dreams! 😻 So thank you for putting up with my constant zero chill about what colour to paint the skirting, or whether the floor tiles should be 30 or 60 centromeres wide, or whether we should have a silver or gold mirror in the downstairs toilet 🙈 I can’t wait to live with you and start the next part of our lives together 🥰 On a less soppy note - do you reckon this first picture is Josh trying to imagine what Saturday footie is going to look like on the new tv with the sound bar on? 🤔😹 . . . . . . reno myrenostory renovation renovating renovate renovator renovationideas renovationproject lovemyrenovation houserenovation propertyrenovation renovationmaison fixerupper doerupper houserefurb buildingahouse renovacin renos houserefurbishment instarenovation instareno instahome firsthome housetohome foreverhome housedesign

Ahh here’s someone who knows how to relax..🐾 . With thoughts of relaxation, I’ve been looking at new bedding. I’m really liking the look of linen, to tie in with my relaxed coastal/boho type vibe for the bedroom. . Have any of you bought linen bedding? Is it comfy to sleep in? I’m still wanting the bedding to be nice and soft and I’m a little bit worried that it might be a bit scratchy? I’m also putting any little niggly thoughts of me being able to cope with creased duvet covers to the back of my mind. I even ended up ironing the linen napkins I bought recently so who knows how I’ll cope 🤷🏻‍♀️😬🤣 . . livingroom livingroomdecor sofa chesterfieldsofa cockerspaniel myinteriorsquares irishhomes

♡ S u n d a y ♡ Yesterday I spent the day painting our old front door, and it’s turned out much better than I expected [no more blue!!] I just need to reattach the hardware, and finally attach my new bee knocker and it will officially be another job ticked off the never ending list! This morning, I’ve been faffing around with cushions in the main lounge. I initially really liked the black in here, as it made it feel more formal, but now I think it looks too flat. I’ve seen cotswoldco have a new range of William Morris cushions that might create more of a statement in here, but I just can’t decide. Any suggestions?? Or do I just keep the pink? ♡ . . lounge loungedesign loungerenovation panelling dreamlounge livingroom renovationlife ourhome familyhome myfamily interiordecor housetohome homedecor homestyle homestyling interiors interiordesign interiorstyle interiorstyling homeinspo instahome actualinstagramhomes realinstahomes interiordecor homeinspiration myhomestyle myhome renovation lovemyrenovation cornerofmyhome

So yesterday the husband was out trimming the hedge that we have left go wild (our dear old neighbours must hate us) and we talked about ordering a skip next week to start ‘project tidy up’ of our trashy garden.... hurrah! It’s baby steps but hey it’s a start right?! Scroll for some hideous pics of the mess!! The build well and truly screwed up the garden! . So for now this is the only angle I can get with some nice greenery in the background (thanks neighbours for letting me steal your trees for this shot 😆) .

Ooh but linsgardenmakeover is going to be the death of me. I’m at that precise point where I know that even though we’ve done so much I could just as easily leave it right here and never finish 🙊 obviously I’m not going to but after spending an age digging again yesterday today I’m going to paint because I need something creative even if it is just fences and walls. Anyway, if you swipe you can see what it looked like in March - the lighter colours on the patio are where we had two broken cupboards we pulled out.

Shadows. . Almost time for the big reveal of the kitchen. It has been so hard to not post updates on the renovation for a couple of weeks. . I really wanted to just get it to a point where I could do a big reveal. . Tomorrow we show family and then next week I can start sharing. . There will be about 100 blog post to write because it has been a LOOONG project. . As with any project it is never ending. Even though we are ready to reveal there is still a snagging list and bits to finish. Missing kitchen parts that are on order and furniture that we still need to source. . It really has been a labour of love. . And as I stand here cooking I feel super emotional. . S x

2-4-1 👷🏼‍♀️👷🏼‍♂️Thought I’d share how our upstairs has changed shape during the renovation - swipe to see the original bedroom, it was a pretty decent size. We decided to remove the chimney breast and split the room in two, almost exactly in half, to get a good sized bathroom and nursery in. So pleased we did! Both rooms turned out better than I thought and feel so much bigger than the previous one did, and it means we have a lovely bathroom upstairs instead of a freezing cold one hanging off the back of the kitchen 🥴 It’s totally transformed how we use the house and feels like it should have been this way all along 💫 renovationlife lovemyrenovation mydiymydecor greathomestaketime myperiodhomestyle doerupper uglyhousetolovelyhouse discoverunder1k discoverunder5k bathroomdecor bathroomrenovation nurseryinteriors startiles howimonochrome myvictorianhome fixerupper

Well, I have some EXTREMELY exciting news!!!! 😃 ⠀ •⠀ This is a peek of the back of our NEW HOUSE which we have now FINALLY exchanged on!! 😱🏡 It’s taken a while and it’s been so hard for me to keep things under wraps! 🙈 I am beyond excited to get the keys to this 1930’s cottage-style house in a couple of weeks, and start on a whole new interior (and exterior as the garden is oh so pretty) journey!! I hope you’ll all join me, as I’d love to take you through every step, as we make this house our home 😊 ⠀ •⠀ You may have noticed a distinct lack of DIY and decorating projects at chez 63 lately, but it’s because we have finally swapped town life for village life and I’ve been a busy bee selling and packing up our house (and oh has it been stressful 😖) ⠀ •⠀ This is quite possibly going to be our ‘forever home’ and I am dying to get in and start putting my stamp on it! It’s not a renovation project as such and we won’t be doing any major building work for the foreseeable although it has the potential to extend, but it does need decorating top to bottom (wait ‘til you see the bright blue bathroom 🤣) ⠀ •⠀ Can’t wait to show you more!⠀ •⠀ •⠀ foreverhomeweremovinghouserenovationnewhomenewhouseournewhomevillagelifehousetourcountryhousecountrygardencountrylivingbeautifulgardengardenviewhouseandgardenhowexcitingourbigadventurehomeremodelhomerenovationhomerenolovemyrenovationcountrygardensmagazinegardenpond1930srenovation1930shouse1930sstylemyinteriorhomeadoremycovetedhomeinstahomehomeinspiration

Rainy Fridays 🌧 Quick Snaps With Poor Lighting.. 📸 This was once the box room in our house, most 1930’s properties have a “box room” so we made the most of our small 1st floor extension and made this room into a small double bedroom, and it soon became my favourite. It’s so cosy on rainy days like today & it’s dark and masculine. It also leads onto a guest bathroom 🚿 We still have a bedside table and pictures to add to this room!

Hi 👋🏼 Happy Friday folks, I hear that today is the last day of bad weather. Horaaaay ☀️ . We have finally laid the hallway tiles , I have had these in the garage since January so it’s a dream to see them go down and the fact that I didn’t change my mind in those 9 months is nothing sort of a miracle. Next up for this room is the grouting, finishing the skirting boards and furniture / lighting. . On a separate note, thanks for your help with the kitchen tiles, We decided on tile A in the end from bertandmay, they are ordered, which is very exciting, but now we just need to wait the painful 9 weeks for them to arrive 😬 Hopefully that gives us enough time to get everything else done! . . . . ihavethisthingwithfloors ihavethisthingwithtiles hallwaydecor hallway hallwaytiles floortiles patterntiles stairmakeover hallwaydesign hallwayinspo hallwayideas hallwayideas hallwayinspiration darkhomes darkhome houserenovation housedecoration renolife lovemyreno housetohome renovation lovemyrenovation renovationlife housemakeover cornerofmyhome myhousethismonth beforeandafterinteriors beforeandafterrenovation beforeandafterhomeedition

Pulled the rest of the kitchen flooring up today and took down the breakfast bar down to get an idea for space. We ran out of work surfaces so we had to make a little DIY solution to use before the bifold space is smashed in!

Another day, another fireplace. She’s not original to the house, but the remnants of another layer of the history of the place and the priorities and preferences of its inhabitants. While the rest were boarded up, the master bedroom fireplace must have been replaced with this Art Deco surround, complete with gas fire sometime in the 30s (? 40s? I’m no expert 😆). My heart didn’t immediately sing for it in the same way as it did for the original ones everywhere else (but tbf the drama in revealing them probs had a role to play in that!) but she’s grown on me. There was a sizeable matching hearth that we knocked out with the gas fire and the proportions feel more acceptable now 😆 The simplistic form and unfussy design juxtaposes with the elaborate details fronting up the rest of the chimney breasts and how bloody lucky are we to have two takes on history and context preserved around this one place?! That the old owners chose the bedroom rather than the living areas to invest in a new decorative heat source speaks to a sort of self care that I am 💯 here for 😊(toasty bed toes and beautiful bed views FTW!) renovation restoration ihavethisthingwithfireplaces artdeco ihavethisthingwithtiles periodhomes victoriansemi myperiodhomestyle interiormilk cornersofmyhome spotlightonmyhome interiorsnapshot periodrenovation housetohome myhouseandhome pocketofmyhome renovating rusticgamestrong actualinstagramhomes nestandthrive mynestandburrow thelifestylecollective myhomevibe currenthomeview mycollecteddecor averyimportantstyle lovemyrenovation dreamhome budgetrenovation

Horrific couple of days trying to get the rest of the dirty work (carpets, wallpaper, green underfloor tiles) up but I think there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Heres how carpet pulling ended up... We are now down to bare bones in all rooms except for the kitchen which has been a bit of a base for the team. Structural engineer in next week to get the beams measured up for the supporting inner wall and bifolds. Also started furniture planning (dreaming) to get an idea for space. More to come soon... renovation renovationlife renovations renovationideas renovationmaison propertyrenovation renovationproject diyrenovation lovemyrenovation renovationtime houserenovation homerenovations houserenovations renovationinspiration renovationhouse renovationrealities

When building a custom home or completing bathroom renovations, ask your developer or contractor to not install any mirrors in the bathroom, and instead shop for your own at a furniture or home decor store. You’ll have more options, and be able to customize your bathroom even more!
