Home Update

When I first moved into this house I had so many plans and projects to do but life has really gotten in the way and so all my plans and projects had been put on hold or completely forgotten about. However this year I made a secret resolution to myself to get some of those projects done and so far I'm doing pretty well.

The main areas I really want to focus on this year are the kitchen, living room, the boys bedroom and the dreaded garden.
As I approach my 3rd month into the year, I can say I'm doing pretty well and getting into the swing of my projects with no fail.... well not just yet! The first project I have been working on is my under stairs cupboard which really has ended up as my junk cupboard. My plans were to maximise storage and space without spending a fortune and I think I have managed to do both on a small budget. A full tour will be up in the next few days so make sure you come back to see it!

The next room on my list is my boys bedroom, they currently share and now it's finally time to change it from a colourful nursery into a room for two young boys with more of a theme. I had originally planned a Star Wars themed room but Alfie has since asked for something else, so Im hoping the new design we have will be a bit more flexible to their ever changing tastes.  The biggest thing will be their beds as they really need a bunk bed so this is looking to be done in the summer as we just got a new car and so we need to get saving again.

My Kitchen is getting a huge makeover but on a very small budget, I'm still working on a few bits so when I have more details I will let you know. I think that this room will be my biggest challenge yet! My idea is to go light and fresh as you can see its quiet dark at the moment I will also be adding a few Disney touches here and there. I wonder what Disney film I will be incorporated into it? Leave me your guesses in the link below!

The garden is currently in planning stage, mainly because I'm waiting for the sun to come out and for a good few dry days together so I can cut the grass and do all the prep work. I really hate the garden and gardening Im not a green fingered at all!   Our garden is so boring and dull,  this year I plan to inject some colour and fun into it, making it a place for our family to chill out in as well as giving a designated area to the pets in the home. I'm also hoping I can get the kids to make some cute crafts items so keep an eye out for those posts this summer.

And lastly the Living room, thankfully it doesn't need a lot doing to it just a fresh lick of paint and gloss and a couple finishing touches, Should easily be able to do it in a weekend. I would really love a new sofa but that is definitely going to have to wait until next year!

In all Im really looking forward to this year and really putting my stamp on our home I would love to know what your plans are for your home this year if you have any? Also if you have any home DIY posts leave them below too I'm obsessed with looking at peoples before and after photos.
