Amazing before and after!

måndag, april 08, 2013

Well look at this makeover that is absolutely amazing from Denmark.  In this house, there are two families living, Knudsen and  Halberg - three generations under the same roof. And what a makeover if you take a look at the third picture below.

Well I got inspired and we actually took a look at our own before and after pictures from our home. But mostly due to that we have carpenters coming this week and will change two windows. Quite some changes has been made here as well. It is good to remind yourself what you actually have done. Take care all!

Starting on the little baby boy room

fredag, mars 15, 2013

Hi all!

Jumping in quickly to wish you all a wonderful weekend. We have recently started on the little baby boy room, and we will continue the make-over for some time (so you know what I will do this weekend).

Here are some before pictures of the room. Can just be better :) Right now I have finished painting a changing table. Will share before and after pictures later. Can´t decide if I shall paint one tiny wall in the room like the first picture here.


So you Monday again. I better get started now!

I am expecting a little baby boy!

måndag, mars 04, 2013

Yes even if I am not that private here at the blog, I think it is hard to hide that I am expecting, even if I have not shown pictures at BIG me at the moment ;-)
There will be a lot of influence here at Make-Living with having a little baby. I am so happy to share it with you, and I hope you like to follow the journey here with kids room make-over and other smaller projects coming up.

We have off-course as you can guess, already started the make-over of the little baby boy´s room. Before pictures I will share later and when we get closer to July, I hope to share the final pictures with you of the room. A wild guess is white as base, but then we really would like to play with a lot of colors and reuse old furniture's.

Below I found some nice inspiration via Frida Remstedt at Trendenser, which is also by the way expecting a little baby. At her blog she is referring to her Pinterest page for more inspiration.  Have to check it out right away!

A lot of inspiration in the pictures! The horse on the picture above is repainted, and we have the same and maybe I can convince my man to spice it up like this. We will see.... Ohh someone is kicking, see you tomorrow again!

Before and After: kids room

fredag, januari 25, 2013


Any exciting plans for the weekend coming up? I have already a long wish list for the weekend on what I like to do, uhhhhhh :)
Today I just thought about sharing an incredible makeover that ferm LIVING has been doing for a family in Denmark. I found this makeover (before and after) project, at ferm LIVING blog, and I think it was really good. A lot of white but also very colorful. I just love ferm LIVING pillows placed in the bed and the wallpaper graphics with pastel color. If you like to see the before pictures, please see the  bottom of the post. 


Quite some change of the kids room. Take care and have a lovely weekend. See you all on Monday again! I will be in Paris with work for three days, but I will try to jump in anyway. 

Au revoir!

Christmas tree - DIY

söndag, december 09, 2012

Second Sunday of Advent! And I am so excited. Today I have a guest post at My Scandinavian Home blog. I am sharing my latest Christmas DIY project that I have created together with my man. Yes he get´s involved in one way or the other. But I think he actually likes is.
This Christmas tree DIY idea came to me when I saw a picture of a similar one over at Tierlantijn but couldn't order it. I hope this little Christmas DIY inspires you too! :)

This Christmas tree is quite neat. You can make it as big as you like, and can have it both indoors and outdoors. And the best thing is that it lights up any dark space at home without needles all over the floor…..And you can use it year after year!!!  

       What you need:
  •  One wood panel approximately 7 cm wide for the tree trunk, which you can make as tall as you like ( mine is about 1 meter)
  • A number of 7 cm wide wood panels for the branches (I have used 7). Cut the branches in staggered lengths so that they form the shape of the tree you would like. I made a triangular template in the shape I wanted and then cut the branches according to this.
  • Nail the branches onto the trunk at an approximate distance of 5 - 7 cm
  • I used a special grey wood stain (not paint) to give the wood an old touch 

Pictures: Make-Living
Today we will buy our real Christmas tree as well, because I like to have both!!! I would love to hear about your Christmas DIY projects as well. Maybe it is interior projects or is it your best cooking recipe that you do every Christmas? Leave a comment below! Happy 2nd Sunday of Advent to you all and see you soon again.

Vårt nyrenoverade kök

lördag, oktober 20, 2012

Ja så var det dags. Att visa vårt nyrenoverade kök. I alla fall i en vinkel där socklar är uppe. Kvarstår att fixa lite till vid matplatsen. Före och efter bilder från köket. Puhhh ganska stor förändring har det blivit. Vi rev överskåpen och anlitade en firma att sprejmåla köksluckorn samt stommarna vita. Golvet har vi målat själva. Kaklet på väggarna åkte bort och vi har spacklat och putsat väggen för att sedan måla den svart. Tanken är att bänkskivan och väggen ska upplevas som att de smälter samman. Vi valde att bevara de inslag av trä som fanns i köket i övrigt. Detta för att mjuka upp intrycket, så bardisken (syns lite till höger på bilden) slipade vi upp och strök på några lager vax. Vax är för övrigt en riktigt bra produkt att jobba med.


Barstolarna har vi köpt på BoConcept i Malmö och mattan från Day Home. Mest nöjd är vi nog med Aröd lampan som vi  gjort en egen montering och lösning på. Den finns inte som vägglampa från IKEA men vi gjorde om den ...till elektrikerns fasa. Nu ett titt på hur det såg ut innan....


Ja man kan säga att vi såg potential i köket. Ljusare och betydligt modernare efter renoveringen. Älskar de vitmålade golven. En närliggande hall och trapp fick också golven vitmålade när vi ändå var i gång. Vi ses imorgon igen och då ska jag tipsa er om en fin fin utlottning.
