So this strays a little from my usual blog posts, but I wanted to share with you my latest project, that I’ve been working on for the past month or so. The project in question was my new loft apartment in Brixton…
It feels pretty awesome to be a homeowner when your home looks like this, I must say 🙂
Hours spent sanding, painting (with Farrow & Ball, naturally!) and cleaning; the kitchen ripped out and built back, a new splash back tiled, a dining table and shelves built out of scaffold planks, plug sockets moved, an industrial-style chandelier created…
Here’s the DIY journey…
I promise I didn’t leave him to do all the hard work…!
Here it is, in all its glory… (I’ve added credits where applicable)
