Ok, so these DIY painted wall arches might be my favourite home decor DIY to date! It’s definitely up there in my top five without a doubt. I’ve been seeing more of these cute arches all over Pinterest and Instagram recently and it gave me an idea to create a quick refresh to my bedroom. I had planned to paint the whole wall behind my bed, but this was so much quicker and as I was changing up my IKEA SVALNÄS system anyway, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to go big! Even though I was pretty happy with what… Read More
This post has been sponsored by Samsung. Is there any better way to celebrate than with cake? I wanted to make a pretty big deal out of Father’s Day this year. Alex has been an incredible dad and partner (even more than usual) this past few months and he really deserves a bit of pampering. First port of call, a cake. And not just any cake. I’m getting a bit more adventurous with my baking plans now I have an oven that can cope with them. (If you want to read all about my interesting previous oven and the revelation… Read More
This post has been sponsored by Ronseal! Thank you for supporting the brands that support Fall For DIY. Don’t you love it when you find a way to make life a little bit easier. I’ve been meaning to makeover my IVAR cabinets for a while now. I’ll show the before photo in a minute and you’ll see why! These cabinets have been ‘refreshed’ a few times now. Each time to work around different styling needs for projects or shooting photos for my upcoming book. So, I’ll admit they were in desperate need of a complete overhaul, but I needed a… Read More
Many of us have just spent the last few months staring at the same four walls. I feel like my home is in need of a refresh, but apart from the odd accessory here and there, I don’t want to start replacing everything I own when in reality I just need to get out the house more! Maybe it’s the spring weather but I’m craving more colour and can I say fun in my home decor! I think I need something to bring a little joy to the mundane of daily life right now. I’m sorry, that sounds so melodramatic,… Read More
Our old oven actually made me fall out of love with cooking in a major way. I’ve never been really into baking, but I’m a tryer. Every single thing I tried, that oven created a disaster. It was disheartening and I just stopped making anything at all. The Samsung Dual Cook has given me more confidence to start cooking and baking from scratch again.

Plant pots and planters are one of life’s little joys. You can pack so much personality into what is essentially a vessel for holding something else. I look around at mine and they are all so unique and add character in the most subtle way. So today I’m working with Wayfair, (who, I’ll say it now, have the biggest array of planters I’ve ever seen. There’s literally something for everyone! Trust me – actually don’t just trust me – take a look here) to show you that you do not have to be a green thumbed plant enthusiast to bring… Read More
I’m generally pretty optimistic when it comes to renovating, building and DIYing. I have a can do attitude which drives me to start projects probably more adventurous than I should and which can get me into some pretty stressful situations. But, when I do find I’ve got myself in too deep, the thing I love the most is the learning process. Somehow I always make it through to the other end. Whether that’s by watching a Youtube tutorial or 300, or actually hiring someone to do the job. I feel much better informed on the way out as I did… Read More
