I spontaneously have a visitor, a very old and good friend coming to stay with me for 5 days. When people come to stay I realise that there is so much still needing done to the apartment. I know I will not get all of these things done but there are a few jobs that really urgently need doing and I thought I would have a little hunt around online to see if I could find any inspiration for projects around the home.
our three different colours of scratched bathroom tiles and the walls need “harmonising” and I would like to paint them with tile paint. On Ebay I can get it delivered for around 20€ for two tins (and then i still need rollers etc.)
- the stained back room carpet needs changed – found a good place in Hamburg with nice offcuts for a 12m sq room around 90€. We will lay the carpets ourselves.
- artwork for the walls (generally)
rug for the sitting room
- electrical sockets and switches need changed – not sure how to do this.
make a cover for the couch – (tutorial here at HoneyBearLane . I have fabric i can use) have a go at making some nice bedding – e.g. apartment therapy’s DIY tutorial on bedspreads and another tutorial for bedsheets. I really love these onesfrom Muji but to buy the full set is around €130:( Maybe I can get some jersey somewhere for less?If anyone has any experience any of this I’d love to hear your thoughts and tips! Thank you!
