Kitchen Renovation Budget Tip! Thinking about giving your kitchen a makeover? Here’s a handy rule of thumb to keep in mind: allocate about 3-8% of your home’s value for a kitchen renovation. For example, if your home is valued at $500,000, aim for a budget between $15,000 and $40,000. This helps avoid overcapitalising and ensures you’re making a smart investment. But if you’re doing a DIY kitchen like this one here, you can get that down to 2% easily! Want more renovating tips? Watch my f...
How much do you think a DIY flatpack kitchen costs? This was $3k start to finish. (I’m not including the floor tiles here). Bunnings cabinetry Leftover benchtop from kitchen Tiles from a junk yard IKEA sink and tap A few sheets of villaboard, paint and some hard yakka. The plumber moved the taps at the same time as some work in the kitchen. ✅
Then switching to the iPad, laptop and big computer. 😂 So many tabs! There’s always so many things to do 😭 Who can relate?

Hands up if you’re me?! 🙋‍♀️😂 (Currently sitting on the couch saying to myself just answer those emails… while I create a reel instead)
The power of paint + opening up a doorway. ✅ I love looking back on the before and comparing to the after. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Like, wow, that really has made a huge difference! #beforeandafter #diy #renovation
My favourite part is the sanded and polished floors. Original and in great condition but just needed some love 🥰 #diy #renovation #beforeandafter #beforeafter #floorboards

I’m enjoying (sarcasm) the process of shuffling a mortgage. What a punish! I feel like if I can get over this hump I can literally do anything 🤣 It’s probably worse than 3x colostomy surgery. Is crowd funding an option?! Just joking. It’s tough out there isn’t it. Powering through 💪🏻 Staying positive, keeping motivated and not losing sight of the end result. #newhousebuild #newhousesoon #building #renovation #diy
Hot Tip for Painting ⤵️ Don’t Skip the Primer! Ever wondered why professional painters always start with a primer? Here’s why you should too! Paint-and-primer combos work well on already smooth, clean surfaces. But if your walls show any signs of wear or it’s been a while since their last coat (think eight years or more), you’ll want to opt for a separate primer. Make a water-based primer, sealer, and undercoat the first thing you grab before that paintbrush. Your future self will thank yo...
So you’re on a budget? Yeah me too! Here’s a few tips ⬇️ Secret 1: Layered Lighting ✨ Professional designers use a mix of ambient, task, and accent lighting to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Keep bathroom and toilet doors closed! Feng Shui Tip ⬇️ Seeing as money and wealth relates to water we don’t want our money being flushed away! Shut the doors and always put the lid down. Extra tip – make sure your mirrors are clean so as to not block the flow of energy. I love a bit of Feng Shui practice and I still consciously thing of my home as a sponge. Good energy always (even if I’m renovating!) #hometips #fengshui #fengshuitips #diy #homebody
I bet you can’t… bargain hunt like me! 🤪 I’m joking, OF COURSE YOU CAN. 👏 I know this wall is a little door-y but I couldn’t do anything about it. You know… budget didn’t match the dream reno… anyway, you just have to do what you have to do! And that was put some cheap and cool barn doors on here. I did not have $400 for a new door (custom size and solid), so I found a bunch in a clearance junk yard and picked out the best 3 (there’s also one on the ensuite), cut them down a bit, added s...
I bet you didn’t know this side yard makeover was basically done for free! I did buy paint, because I did the whole house, but all the succulents came from maybe 10 little pots and I kept splitting them. #diy #makeover #reno #renovation #renovationsaustralia
As it turns out, many of us are actually putting our top sheets on the wrong way. Can you believe that they are inside out? The side with the pattern (or the good side) is the one that should be facing downward! You must get that neat top fold over. That’s the part that counts! We want to see those pretty patterns when you flip it over. The neat seam on the top. Now, guys, don’t come for me and say you don’t have a top sheet. We always have a top sheet, don’t we? Yes, we do! 🤣 😘 #bedroom...
