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
Ad – Samsung has very kindly supplied us with our new fridge freezer. All opinions are my own. As kitchen renovations go ours has been a lesson in how not to do pretty much everything. We read 50 articles on how to organise a DIY kitchen refit, planned each step along the way, bought all our new kitchen cabinets, and then went rogue. I don’t even know where our carefully planned lists are anymore. We’re just winging it. But so far it’s working. We have half a kitchen complete and not a day has gone by when we haven’t been… Read More
HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! I feel a little bit shell shocked that we’re in 2020 already. If you’ve followed me for a while you’ll know that I don’t make any resolutions or goals in January. I’m still recovering mentally from the Christmas build up, so instead I use January as a wind down. I like to reflect and regroup and take my time to set goals. It’s easy to get swept up with the ‘New Year, new me’ frenzy but there’s actually no rush. You can set goals whenever you’re ready. Start them on any given Monday, or Wednesday. Or… Read More
