DIY Ikea Hack Bench Seat

Ok so I have to admit that when I suggested we build our own bench seat I didn't actually think Jeremy would agree to it, but he did! I was super excited and went searching right away for online inspiration, which I found here. After searching we decided the most cost effective and time efficient way to build the bench was to go with ikea kitchen cabinets. Keep reading for step by step instructions and photos.

Rail Trail Adventure: Part 1

We recently went on a five day cycling holiday to the Victorian Alps and though I wouldn't call it a relaxing holiday, it was definitely enjoyable and beautiful! The plan was to cycle roughly 40 kilometres (25 miles) the second day, 70 kilometres (43 miles) the third day and then just peddle around one of the towns the fourth day. It sounded easy enough on paper...

The Almost Free Easter Garland

I'm not huge on decorating for the holidays, simply because we don't have the space to store decorations, but the one thing I do do each holiday is make a garland. Garlands are a fun, simple and festive way to decorate for the holidays plus they're small so easy to store! The garland I made for Easter this year uses some very thrifty supplies.
