Reposting my Ikea kids kitchen hack @Ikea uk @ikeahackersofficial to answer all the questions in my inbox about it collectively. I used @rustoleum chalk spray paint -just for a smoother finish and I painted it before assembling. Shade is called China Rose. I lacquered it with @rustoleum clear lacquer. (Apply with a small roller for a smoother finish) I used a piece of sample wallpaper (attached to a small piece of backing board) for the ‘tile effect’ splash back. Handles, tap, sink and everything else you see that’s gold, I used gold spray paint. I recently re-sprayed and lacquered them too as I found they chipped over time without the lacquer. The counter top is covered with marble effect sticky back film from @bandq_uk 
My kids play with this daily ✨ 
The boxes underneath and the little gold baskets were all from @tkmaxx I hope this answers most of the questions guys. Get creative- it’s fun ✨✨✨

How was your week?? Mine has been productive. Today was particularly satisfactory as I finally cleaned the dairylea face imprint /mouth smear off my window in the lounge (that’s been there a week, I won’t lie and Im not certain which child it looked most like to place blame and neither will take responsibility, but none the less, it’s gone) AND I took the Christmas lights off the balcony. I’m smashing the to-do list this week ✨ Ikea this weekend too so I’ll be sure to update you on all the unnecessary shite I leave there with 🙋‍♀️ Happy Weekend 👏🏻 .

The pinky lounge (as my girls call it). At the other end of this space is the girls play space. Their little kitchen and a few baskets of toys. All their other toys are in their bedrooms. We made a toy room in the last house for them and I think in the next house we will do that again. ( I must look out the pics of their old toy room. It was a rainbow room!Can you remember it? ) They were talking fondly about it yesterday. I actually feel they were too young to appreciate it and just used to pull every toy out but not actually play. Whereas now, they both do a lot of role play so I feel that they’d use it more. I’m not re-jigging now but I will defo consider a toy room, next move. 
I’ll post pics of the rainbow room if I find them 🌈✨

Hello all👋🏻 it’s been a while! I’ve been having a huge declutter around here! The house and all the recent negativity on my feed. I always said that regardless of what happened with the comp, I’d still be continuing with my page and I stand by my word. So for all those who have relentlessly tried to pick me and my intentions apart, I ask that if you haven’t already been removed, that you remove yourself (ie unfollow). The house comp didn’t have the outcome we’d hoped but we still managed to change a lady’s life. We tried something different, we followed every single rule and adhered to every guideline. We are a normal, working family NOT fraudsters. For those who have followed along for a while will know that. I’m here to stay guys and I’ll not be bowing down to the trolls. I am always dignified in my responses but going forward, they won’t be responded to. I will be deleting and blocking any negativity because that’s my right. Good vibes only around here ✌🏼 .

Bush in situ! I’m not joking when I say I spent over 4 hours untangling 1000 twatting string lights and very nearly lost my shit several times! I was literally sweating with stress. The kids love to help with the bauble placement (which is a stress in itself 😊) so it took us all day! However, she’s up. Just the outside decorations to tackle tomorrow. Happy 1st of December, friends 🌲🌟 Although a tad stressful, it has been a magically special day with my babies. I’m very grateful for all my blessings. Always spare a thought for those less fortunate today. ❤️

I’ve been trying to re-jig furniture today to find the best spot to erect my Christmas bush.
2 hours and I’m back to the original plan of putting it where Palmela is currently situated- by the window. I managed to get a bit of Christmas shopping done this morning too although I’m nowhere near finished. I have not assembled the LOL hampers I spoke about a few weeks back so for those who have messaged to ask, don’t worry, I’ll keep you posted! It’s so miserable, weather wise here- I’m really not looking forward to decorating the exterior of the house with lights through fear of blowing away!  My ladder has seen better days so if anyone local has an good extending ladder I can borrow- drop me a line please 🙋‍♀️Hope your week is going grand. ✨ Nearly the weekend .

MUST. GET. BETTER. AT. POSTING. Here’s a before and after shot for anyone new around here. Sorry for the lack of activity, yet again. I lost my insta mojo and struggling to find it again. Looks like most of you have got your Christmas trees in situ! I’ll be following suit at the weekend. Aside from erecting your bushes, what else have you been up to? .

A hallway shot since I’ve never posted an ‘after shot’ of this space. Who remembers the terracotta? Swipe the pics! That was a good day, hacking those tiles up! Hope you’re all well? Loving all the Christmas tree pics on here. The big day is fast approaching! Less than 6 weeks ‘til the house comp ends too. Not sure where the year has gone. 🤷🏼‍♀️
