As far as (Autumn) Monday achievements go, I think finding white pumpkins is up there 😂🤷🏽‍♀️🎃 Scarlett and I are not quite sure what we are going to do with 20 pumpkins just yet... potentially just pass them off as decoration for Mats 30th...Just what he's always wanted 🤔 • And yes I've put Scarlett on a shelf.

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you've all had a good one! We've had such a good weekend in Newcastle and celebrating our friends wedding. My sister always jokes calling Mat and I 'wedding crashers' as we've had so many over the last few years. But we took that to the next step and literally were the wedding crashers yesterday 😂 Thank you for all the messages, we were all fine. But the front of my car looks how we feel today 😂 • Also.... I'm sure you've already seen from my stories - (can't help but go OTT) 🤷🏽‍♀️ giveaway with Sophie Allport ends tonight at 12pm (on my previous post) if you hadn't seen. But I wanted to let you know they have also kindly given me the discount code 'HOPPY12' to share for 12% off (this is valid for a week) I missed that out in all the excitement 😂

Sorry, I had planned to not post another living room picture for a while, but, the living room is now FINISHED 🙌🏽💃🏽 So I thought I could get away with another 🤷🏽‍♀️ Also @suffolktractorgirl was egging me on. I'm easily swayed 😂 • I've added a before and one of where I did some little improvements to the room before we went for it 😂 👉🏽 After stripping (walls), I skimmed them (roughly with a kit from B&Q) then I painted in some paint from wilkinsons for £10 and used some left over gray paint for the fireplace surround and white tile paint (which I'd used in the spare room fireplaces) Thought I would share in case that was useful for anyone wanting to do the same. No one asked 🤔 but in case it was useful 🤷🏽‍♀️😂 • logburner farrowandball cornforthwhite shelfie shelfdecor sittingroom parquet herringbone woodparquet fireplace

I've learnt this weekend, there are things I can do quite well, like painting. And things I can't do, such as making furniture 😂 If you saw my stories you'll have seen that beauty of a side table in all it's glory. Mat said the only time it will be in the living room is when it's inside the log burner 😔😂 • I do need something for above the bed still. As usual just can't decide 😂🤔 Also for those of you who like a good before, I've added some of the before and during pics I had on my phone.

As soon as Mat gets home there's going to be two comments 1) What are those magazines doing on the footstool that's not practical and 2) you can't be trusted with coffee on the new footstool 😂🤷🏽‍♀️ • This really is the week that keeps on giving 🤗😂 we had this fireplace surround made and fit, then my £5 eucalyptus tree and our footstool arrived and I only ordered it on Monday! 🙌🏽 • We just won't talk about the absence of a mirror above the fireplace. I bought one ages ago and gave a real heartful justification to Mat, as to why I needed to buy it and how perfect it was for the living room. Well it turns out it's way too small 😂🤦🏽‍♀️

What a day we've had...firstly the fireplace surround has been made and fitted and we absolutely love it! Shaun has done such a good job, especially considering I gave him a magazine with half a fireplace pictured and said could it be like this 🤷🏽‍♀️😂😩 Then as if that wasn't enough I picked up the featured dried eucalyptus tree... for a fiver!!! Anyone who says this isn't what they've always wanted is only kidding themselves 🤷🏽‍♀️😂 Now I've got a big night ahead, painting the fireplace and Dr Foster 🙌🏽 Happy Tuesday everyone! fireplacedecor eucalyptustree drfoster dontkidakidder thewhitecompany

No this isn't a finished living room picture for those of you thinking... 'Bloody hell how long until it's done '😂🤷🏽‍♀️ but this is a newly painted fireplace. A few people (by that I mean maybe 2) have said they like seeing the progress pictures, so here's the painted fireplace 😂 The brilliant carpenter, Shaun, is making our fireplace surround (keep him sweet in case he reads this) no joking aside he's bloody👌🏽he did the flooring and these cabinets! Once that's done just a mirror to go up and we are done!! I mean we still need an armchair and pictures up etc. But I'm spent up this month, on the floor, so no armchair for me yet. Tragic story that isn't it 🎻😂 • I know a few people may be wondering where the painted fireplace came from. For those of you who have become well acquainted with Mat and his dislike for white. He started saying he wanted downpipe on the fireplace. I've had to reign him in, he's got well ahead of himself! I've done two walls downpipe in the house, don't push it ✋🏽 but the compromising partner I am, I've given him @farrowandball cornforth white. Won't tell him but it does make it feel really cosy giveaninchtheytakeamile imallgive

The new sofa is finally in 🙌🏽 so the most important person in this house is checking it's comfy enough 🐰 • I still need to find cushions for the other half of the sofa 😂 (recommendations would be great 🤔) and faff with this side of the room for what I've got planned, but I'm SO happy to do nothing but lay on the sofa tonight watching a movie, eating (carefully) and not having textured wallpaper hanging off the ceiling 😂 I did say to Mat oh a free Saturday night shall we go to the cinema, his response "why would I pay to listen to people chat and eat popcorn all the way through a film, when I can sit in the comfort of our own home and get that from you for free" Fair point 🤷🏽‍♀️ saturdaynight sofa housebunnylife • I will add to here as I keep getting so many messages about what colour this room is and I always try and reply but this girl is knee deep in DIY it's little greene slaked lime x

Quality control has been inspecting and she's happy with the new flooring in the living room and hallway 🐰😂 It is getting sanded and stained Tuesday but I love it so much already. So close to getting a living room again 🙌🏽 Scroll for some more pics 👉🏽 I've had quite a lot of questions, for those wondering the flooring is from @directwoodflooring • I hope everyone's had a lovely Saturday! It's been such a nice day. Which has been much appreciated as we are us off to Leeds Fest tomorrow. I told myself last year, no more, we are too old for this game.

I can't help myself, sorry 😂🐰🛁 but it's been a while since Scarlett's hit the tub, so her time had come...🤷🏽‍♀️ • What a week it's been, thank you again for all the messages when my car broke down. For those wondering... it was just something to do with the left phalange and that's all you need to know 😂🚗 Glad some of you found it more entertaining than Eastenders 😂 • But aside from all your funny messages coming home to these towels certainly perked me up!! Mat can't be trusted with white towels, so he's now having these dark grey ones 😂 As usual when when Post arrives I got too excited unpacking them and couldn't get them to look all nice like they arrived 🤦🏽‍♀️ but you get the idea. For those who have recently started following and thinking I'm off my head (you're probably not wrong) but just to be clear I've not totally lost it. Scarlett isn't getting out of the bath and going to use a towel. Actually maybe it's worse that I felt I needed to explain that 😂🤔 • But back to towels, the lovely @hamptonandastley have given me a discount code for 50% off their 7 piece Egyptian towel sets (originally £44.99) available in 12 gorgeous colours.

Here's a photo I took Sunday before I left home for a few days. Not sure if that's sad or organised 🤔 But I thought actually it's probably the best time to post whilst I'm away in a hotel as I've nothing to do so questions and comments come at me. I'm ready and raring 😂🤗 Is anyone else like me and struggles to do just nothing 🤷🏽‍♀️ • Also as quite a few people have asked about the kitchen and who doesn't love a good before and after?! 👉🏽 so slide along to see the kitchen before (mid) and after snaps in all their glory. It's even got the rarity of Mat doing some manual labour 😂 (just joking if you're reading this). Got to keep the project sponsor happy after all 😉😂 • For those who may be wondering where's the original kitchen. We actually moved our kitchen into our dining room and eventually will sort what is not the conservatory to make this just an open kitchen dining space. Mat says he's not funding that job, so unless homesense closes down and I stop spending... there's a high chance that may never happen 😂 kitchen renovation beforeandafter kitchendecor

Well I didn't get chance to finish it whilst I was off, but here it is so far 🖌It feels so much cosier - I love it! • On that note, I can't wait to jump into bed after sleeping on a canal boat over the weekend.

First day of my week off and it has been productive so far... I finally ordered a skip. Which hurt to spend money on something I don't want, to get rid of lots of stuff I don't want 😂 but to soften the blow I'm seeing it as more of a gift to the neighbours. Who keep asking about our piles of bricks, toilet and other accessories we had on the driveway 😂🤣 • Less productively, I decided I was going to strip the spare room white floorboards and whitewash them (this is why I need to stay off Pinterest) Then an hour in I realised that was a bad idea and I'd need a month off to complete that job 😂 So I am now frantically repainting them before Mat questions what I'm up to before our friends arrive 🤦🏽‍♀️ • Oh and yes between all that I've been trying the blurry background trick 😂 sorry so eager with the autumn candle too.

My caption says DIY queen, I think that actually translates to 'whatever Mat will let me do, I will give it a bash' ... I shall amend bio accordingly 😂 A pro wouldn't have made the rookie mistake I did the other night... I finished painting the side door about 9pm, but what I didn't account for was drying time 😕 About 12 pm and it was still tacky 😩 So I was on door shift, as we left it open and every hour or so I went to check we hadn't been burgled and if it was no longer tacky and could be shut 🤦🏽‍♀️😂 • We don't have the door knob on the door leading from the side into the hallway (we just open it with the metal rod) 😂 but I removed that and shut the door so fear not, it wasn't a total burgler hotspot. As soon as Mat woke up his response was "is the tv still there" 😂 I definitely learnt from that mistake when I painted the front door! • It's farrow and ball downpipe, I just need to buy a new knob and letterbox and that's another job done 🙌🏽 Have a lovely Sunday everyone problemsolver diytips safetyfirst houserabbit downpipe

This week door colour has been the latest decision I can't make 😂 Then on my way back from the tip, I spotted a door with the perfect grey shade. So I turned back and knocked on the strangers door to identify the colour, as you do. The lady wasn't sure but said "Richard from the decorating centre said it's the most popular grey" 😂 Job done off to the decorating centre I went "1L eggshell of your most popular grey please Richard " sadly it turns out they have a few popular greys 😕 • Then from one first world problem to another 😂 I've seen two rabbit door knocks which I absolutely love and really want but they're from anthropologie USA. What are the chances of duty tax? 🤔 If all else fails I'm knocking on this door (another door) I passed on my way home tonight too, to find out where I can get that fox knock from and this colour 😂🚪 ifyoudontaskyoudontget populargrey indecisive

When I write it out it still sounds like a lot 😕 I was going to do a before picture, but I may be a little premature so I will calm down and wait until it's done 😂 • We still haven't decided on the fireplace wall, whether to paint that darker and the fireplace white or the other way? 🤔 big decisions 😂 sundays livingroom newmaterial
