Breezy Coastal Makeover

Posted on Sep 25, 2016 in Renovation


Delighted to have the Home Beautiful team visit our work-in-progress renovation on our latest project in Bilgola, Northern Beaches.  Click here to read all about the 1980’s house makeover on a tight budget as featured in Home Beautiful October issue.

Now that the interiors are finished (thank goodness), we are turning our attention to the verandah and outdoor area around the pool and as you can see from below, some serious imagination is needed…

We are planning on getting rid of those awful pavers and installing Hardie-groove cladding on the ceiling to hide the wiring which will allow us to then wire up some nice ceiling lights.  The metal pool fence will be replaced and a coat of Porters stone paint in ‘Irish linen’ on the house will complete the job. We love using Porters Paints, this particular paint is a matt finish and comes in a fine or coarse texture which is great for our place! (Porters Stone Paint link) .

Stay tuned for more pics or follow us on Instagram for the before and after photos.
