If you're a regular reader of my blog then you'll know that 2018 has been the year of renovations for us. We've spent so much of our savings, so much of our time and so much of our energy and patience turning our house into a home and creating spaces that will suit our family for years to come. We've done so much to this house since we've moved in - we've had a loft conversion built, we've had a front two-storey side extension added on and also a porch. The boy's rooms have completely changed, we've had a brand new kitchen put in and after some initial stress thanks to the builder running off from the job with our money, we've also had our garden completely re-done, which I can't wait to share with you all soon.

Our living room is a room that had remained untouched since we moved in. On the whole, it was a room that we were happy with, although changing the paint colour was always something that we'd wanted to do, as although it wasn't awful, we weren't the biggest fans of the yellow undertone in the magnolia that the previous owners of the house had chosen. Over the years the paint had also marked easily, cracks had appeared and we'd also managed to take big chunks of paint off after trying to remove some artwork that Ethan had kindly drawn on the walls.
