RESTORATION REVEAL: BREAKFAST ROOM

Restoration Reveal: Three years into our slow home renovation and we have one more completed room. Even after all this time, I still think that waiting for a home to come together slowly and organically is really rewarding. There are some things you just can’t rush, and making a house into a home is one of them.

Finally!!! We have finished our breakfast room restoration!! I’m not normally an over-user of exclamation marks! But in this instance, I think they are well deserved. After all, it’s taken us a long time to get to this point!

Technically the room has been finished for a few months now but I’ve only just had the opportunity to edit my photos and the headspace to write this post.

WOODEN FLOOR RESTORATION

Lots of you are loving following along with our breakfast room DIY endeavours. The floor has been finished for about a month now and I am totally in love with it.

Lots of you are loving following along with our breakfast room DIY endeavours. If you are on Instagram, and more precisely Instagram Stories, then you will have seen the wooden floor restoration taking place as it happened. The floor has been finished for about a month now and we are totally in love with it.

It took a lot of sweat and a few tears, but it has made such a big difference to the space. The room is so much lighter and because the colour is the same as the kitchen floor it links the two rooms beautifully.

A whole bunch of you got in touch to ask if I would share the process and what products we used. Also, filling the gaps between our boards became a hot topic and many of you messaged me with suggestions of things you have tried in the past, in order to make your homes less draughty. I know a few of you wanted to see that list too, so I will share that at the bottom of this post. This is not a sponsored post, just me telling you what I have tried and how I got on.

A SIMPLE KITCHEN UPDATE: V33 FLOOR PAINT

Here's an update on our progress with our simple kitchen renovation. We used V33 floor paint on our old tiled floor, and it has totally transformed the space. Read more at Geoffrey and Grace...

We are nearly there with our simple kitchen makeover at last! I can now see the end in sight.

For those that have been following along on Instagram stories you’ll know that for part of the renovation we painted the floor with V33 tile floor paint ‘Moondust’.

It always amazes me how changing the floor impacts the space so dramatically. Where there were old red tiles before, there is now this unified pale grey colour. It make the whole space feel a lot bigger and the light bounces off it beautifully.
