Before we get started with our features (which are amazing by the way!) I wanted to show you what I’ve been up to this week…just in case you missed something!
Have you ever tried Glass Etching? This is my first try and I’m telling you…it’s easy! HERE
And HERE is our iPad/Tablet holder for the kitchen!
Now let me introduce Julie from Restyle Relove! Julie picked our features today…
I live in a north western suburb of Sydney, Australia, with my husband and 2 young children. I’m a full time Mum and a part time Furniture Restyler.
Like all DIYers, I’m constantly painting something, moving something, or restyling something.
And when I am not thrifting or restyling or blogging, I’m doing mummy things.
Prior to having our children I worked as a Personal Assistant in the Legal Industry. When our daughter was born I enjoyed motherhood too much to return to an office job. I’d always been creative and now I was able to expand on this instead. I began making and selling nursery decor. A year later I was expecting our second child. Shortly after my son was born, I began sewing vintage style soft baby toys which I sold through a retail store. But after sitting up nights on end sewing, I soon realised I needed the sleep more than we needed the extra income.
A year later, we purchased our first real home, having owed an apartment and rented in the years prior. What drew me to this house was the abundance of white plantation shutters on the windows. It was love at first sight. Otherwise the house was a blank canvas and this is where I started following home decorating blogs and finding online inspiration from other thrifty and creative people, including Kerryanne at Shabby Art Boutique! This lead me to posting my own online blog following my decorating and crafting adventures.
It also lead me to turning my furniture restyles into a part time business, enabling me continue working from home whilst caring for my children.
It took me 4 years to discover my personal decorating style, but now I realise that I tend to gravitate towards vintage farmhouse decorating using lots of whites and neutral tones.
Our other hosts would love to meet you too!
