One of the perks of buying a new home is the opportunity to redecorate.
I’m relishing my new project. . . or should I say, series of new projects, because this one is a biggie.
I’m in a unique situation of having chosen a business that came with a home, rather than going out and choosing a new home to live in.
There are many things I love about our new living space, but there are also things that I can’t wait to change. There are a few minor projects that are just purely cosmetic and then there are some more major DIY projects that I can’t wait to tackle like kitchen and bathrooms.
And here’s the fun part. . . I’m doing it myself on a BUDGET and you get to follow along.
We’ve been living here for a month. . . soaking in the ambiance of our new living space.
Eager as I am to start redecorating, we decided that we needed to get a feel for what works for us before we start changing things around.
Paint chips and colour charts have been lingering around for awhile now and we’ve all agree on a style and colour palette for our renovation.
Our previous home was mostly white and neutral and very shabby. We still love that look, but have decided to add a few accent colours to our palette and head more towards a coastal shabby meets Hamptons elegance look.
Living opposite the beach means that the coast is a big part of our lifestyle, so we’re taking our inspiration from the calming colours that are all around us.
I’m glad I’ve taken the time to reflect on this project before launching into it, as some of my ideas and original plans have changed. I’m playing around with inspiration boards, project plans, DIY instructions and available supplies.
I have a list. . . several in fact!!
Ahh, you already know I LOVE a list. There’s a wish list of ‘Vintage Wants’ and another for ‘Recycled Materials’. . . there are lists planning the order of projects, costs, time schedules. . . and so on.
And now I’m ready to make a start.
I hope you’ll follow along on my budget friendly ‘shabbilicious’ make-over.
Until next time,
Hugs – Kerryanne
