I love all those things - cheap to fix, big bang for buck.
Re brick, this is our current PPOR. It had awful pinky coloured exposed brick in the kitchen. Excuse the unstyled photos This cost us less than $500 so far.
White washing the brick made all the difference.
Much nicer, Jess - well done!
I loathe stairs of any description. I'd never buy or build a double story house. Even all our apartments are ground floor. My parents built one when I was 18 and my younger brother 15 - they were in their late 50s. Mistake!!! The only advantage was that neither of them could ever be bothered going upstairs, which is where my brother's and my bedrooms and bathroom were, so they could be messy without Mum knowing I remember my brother hitting an all-time low when he was (at one point) sleeping on a bare mattress, because he just couldn't be bothered making his bed after pulling the sheets off to wash them one week.
Yeah that's right...for me, I look at the area and neighbourhood (money can't fix) more than the actual house features. I'll adjust if need be to the house, but can't adjust if it's boganville.
So much better! Did you use limewash as your whitewash or is it just white paint?
And love the light-fittings.
Looks heaps better. The chalk board door is a good idea too!
We just mixed white paint half/half with water - we still wanted the variance in the brick to show through without the pinky tones.
We love the chalkboard, it's heaps of fun. That was the first thing we did to tie in the weird black wall cabinet.
But didn't mean to hijack the thread, just an example of why dark brick is not a deal breaker for me, by any means.
@Jess Peletier - where did you get the chalkboard door? love the idea!
@samiam It was just the existing pantry door which I painted in blackboard paint - you can get it from Bunnings.
I have an apartment block not far from me that's literally about 5 or 6 meters away from a busy train line. Wouldn't want to live there, at least at the unit level with the train.
