Restoring furniture / creative home

we found this is a neighbours shed!

Had to treat it for woodworm

It was pretty battered … but pretty nonetheless 


Before shot

It seemed fitting to house it in our new build as it had been part of the neighbourhood for years, and with a new lease of life, it had potential to take pride of place in our sunroom / dining room (depending on the season! )

I pick out the colours, and prefer to paint canvas, it’s my husband who gets creative with furniture painting!

So here’s what he came up with for the big wall! Whatcha think?



Making our house full of personalised creations aligns us with how we value creativity in our lives …

Paddy my hubby did an creative painting course using Annie Sloan paint and creative techniques for furniture, check out revamped dining table

…. A great little investment for our family as he’s becoming a dab hand for up cycling old and odd pieces!

His background is constructive concrete and is preparing for some future pieces of interior using concrete

….. Watch this space!

*Create the change you want to see in your home!


Ps: take a look at my ideals around creating a space around values in my de-clutter post

Running the home empire!

I’m starting a course in the coming week …. 

To feed my working spirit …

and tweak my daily work to come directly in alignment with my message of health, creativity and soul.

I’m hoping it will give me the nuts and bolts to develop further my dream of mentoring families to find financial freedom working alongside us at familywholefoodhealth, and build upon my existing business with the juice plus + company.

I feel I have been growing into myself as a leader and mentor of this last year, and the next 12 weeks of participating in ‘design an authentic living’ with Niamh Arthur will prepare me to launch big plans to develop my empire!!

I hope to take you on the journey with me, as I journal my learnings in my professional development. The course starts officially August 9th, so I’ll be well on my way when kids return to school and I get stuck into the nitty gritty!

Here’s to health wealth creativity 

…. And lots of soul 

Ps: did you ever feel it was your time for something?

What was is? And how did it develop! Would love to hear!
