Kitchen Reno

   Our tiler laid the last sheet of black hex mosaics on our splash back late last year. It was a long awaited process for our brown and cream 1960's kitchen. I am a lover of all things retro, however the functionality and lack of generous cupboard space was non-existent and triggered the idea of a full Kitchen reno. We started the process in September 2016 and we bought our black tap and deep sink that collected dust for over a year. During this time we (by we i mean my partner and builder)  knocked down the wall and door into our kitchen and demo'ed the old school overhead cupboards which blocked so much light. We lived from a trestle table and...

Gettin' crate-ive

                           We are currently changing the store up a bit to be more open and light. I love black but the whole building was black inside and out- just a bit too much black for my liking. We decided to paint the walls APCO colour 'silver queen' which made a huge difference, however one of the walls needed something to give it a lift. I grabbed a bunch of old school beer crates from my parents shed to crate (excuse the pun) some interest on the wall. A wallpaper sample from aspiring walls ashford tropics collection inspired the colour palette for the crates and sparked the idea to use them as...
