Summer Home Improvements

*Collaborative post.

Summer is always a great time for home improvements. The sunshine and longer days make you feel like you have more time to play with, and with the lockdown, we had so much time. We made the most of the extra time spent at home by doing some summer home improvements. We have been really busy working on our house and I am impressed with how much work we have done already. Prior to the home improvements, our house was looking pretty tired. We have been in our house for over 7 years now and we haven’t really devoted time to redecorating since we moved. I switch things up here and there, but nothing extreme until this summer.

Before this big home redecoration, the most we ever did was to get new curtains and blinds a while ago. The Yorkshire Fabric Shop is a great store to shop for fabrics for blinds, curtains, so it is worth looking on their website for fabric furnishing ideas. We also decorated the children’s room some years ago and we do get new home furniture every now and again. However, this is the first time we went all out in home decoration.

Plastering and Painting

The first thing we started off with was plastering and painting. We only just finished painting the whole house some weeks ago. M did it all and it was a lot of work. We opted to use the same colour to keep things simple, and the cream paint and white doors work so no need to change it.

Redecorating the Children’s room

The kiddies got new beds. They have outgrown their toddler beds, so we decided to go for single beds for them. They love them and the single beds look great. I love the fact that they come with some storage to store extra bits neatly. You can never have too much storage. The twins also got some new bedroom furniture and a reshuffling of their bedroom. The redecoration has given the room a new look. It looks brand new!

Deep Summer Cleaning

We were able to deep clean the house. Since we were moving furniture about, we got the golden opportunity to clean so many corners and spots we haven’t been able to reach in years. It was so amazing to give the whole house a good deep clean.

Series I am watching on Netflix

Watching Netflix is one way I relax. I don’t have as much time as I would love to binge watch my favourite series, but I watch a few hours every week and I look forward to it. It is my own way of unwinding. I am super homely, hardly go anywhere and I don’t feel like I am missing out on anything. I guess that’s why Netflix really works for me. Plus there are so many new movies and series to watch on there. It is sometimes impossible to decide on what to watch, which is why I now have a list on there. That way I go straight to my list to watch what I have added previously. If not I am be undecided all night.

Series I am watching on Netflix

Here are some of the series I am currently watching on Netflix –

 

YOU

I found the first season of YOU so entertaining and I am now loving the second season. Initially, I struggled to get into it but Ince I did, it is episode after episode. It is definitely worth watching. The lead actor is such a psycho. Do you watch it?

 

Power

I love POWER so much. It is super entertaining with the twists and turns. I have seen all the new episodes in the new season and waiting on the last set to come through. I can’t wait to see who really killed Ghost. Who do you think it is?

 

The Stranger

I only just started watching this and I am so into it already. It is a fun storyline with a lot of suspense. I think the acting is amazing and I can’t wait to get to the root of the matter. This is another must-watch on Netflix.

 

Don’t F***k with Cats

This criminal documentary was quite disturbing to watch but I couldn’t stop watching. It was full of suspense and I found it very informative because it was my first time hearing about the case.  If you love crime, you would love this.

 

The Witcher

This was a good watch. I have seen a couple of episodes and I like the storyline. Highly recommended for those into the supernatural and fantasy. You won’t want to miss this.
