On the Australia Day weekend I completely refurbished a house. Not bad eh? Well actually, I must confess that it wasn’t a real house, but a little house to display knick knacks. I found this brown house in a charity shop and decided it could do with a make over. I love finding some unloved object and saving it from landfills.

First of all I sprayed the house with white paint (if I was doing this again I would use a paintbrush as I think I would have a more even finish). Next for the fun part, decorating. In my scrap bag I had little pieces of vintage sheets which made perfect wallpaper which I glued on and then varnished. Also incorporated into the decorations were an old stamp, piece of doily, scrap of old music and a book page. Some of the rooms I left completely white for possible later decorations or for those knick knacks that prefer a minimalist decor.
