Spring Cleaning with Fantastic Services

Hello Spring!

Spring is hands down my favourite season, with it comes the promise of sunshiney days, flowers, warm breezes and a fresh start! On the homefront I always love to start with a good Spring clean, so when Fantastic Services reached out to see if I’d like to try one of their services I jumped at the chance.

I had been feeling overwhelmed like I never had enough hours in the week to get all the things done. Between juggling work, two dogs, two teenagers, a husband working from home and a small business… something had to give! The team from Fantastic Services turned up right on time with all the gear and did an amazing job of whipping my place into order!

I honestly feel light a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Not only is my home now clean, but it’s given me time to crack on with some diy projects and given me back my creative mojo!

Getting in some help was THE best decision. I’m ready to enjoy my home this Spring instead of feeling stressed each time I walk in the door!

If you feel like you could do with a hand at your place, I’d highly recommend the Fantastic Services team. They’ve kindly offered a discount of $20 off your choice of service, use code coastalhomelove. They do all sorts of cleaning, gardening work, handyman services, pest control and more! What are you waiting for?! 🙂

Now I’m off to start a few Spring projects!

Mini Wardrobe Makeover with White Knight Paint!

Do you ever start one job only to be distracted by another?  Well that kind of happens to me quite frequently 😉  Case in point, I decided to go through my wardrobe to cull a few pieces.  I try to do this semi regularly as things just seem to make their way in.

As I started hurling shoes and clothes into piles I was distracted by my tangled and messy piles of jewellery and accessories.  Rather than just tidying them up like a normal person, I decided I NEEDED to paint the back of my wardrobe and create a hanging display for jewellery.

Lucky for me I had a tin of delicious black paint on hand just waiting to be cracked open.  I had just received a beautiful gift basket of paint goodies from White Knight Paints as part of their #whiteknightrevive campaign.

So without further ado and despite it being almost school pick up time, I proceeded in a frenzied pace to remove everything including the shelves.  I gave it a quick wipe down and within minutes I had started painting!

This range of painIMG_6356_Editedt is called Splashes, it’s a water based enamel for interior or exterior application.  It goes on so smooth and beautifully!

There’s something about black paint I just love! It’s so striking and it makes the best back drop for things…. especially pretty shiny and sparkly things 😉

I wish I’d taken a ‘before’ photo of the mess and chaos, but it was really a spontaneous decision.  So you’ll just have to imagine cluttered shelves with a jumbled mess of stuff!

The jewellery hanger I found at The Reject Shop, I think it was $3.  I simply removed the hook and attached the black part to the wall using a couple of picture hooks. The jewellery tree was a gift from my Mum, I think it works nicely against the black.IMG_6700_Edited

I left out the bottom shelves to create a dressing table like spot, it really helped to open up the space and created the perfect spot for display.

This mini makeover was so quick and easy!  Black paint, a paint brush and a woman on a mission!  I love this paint so much that I may or may not of started painting something else whilst I had a wet brush in hand, stay tuned for part two! 😉

Do you love black paint too?  Where can you splash some around at your place?

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Jo xx
