Our home: YHG Mag March 15

Erena-Te-Paa-house-tour-2014-entrance-YHG-mag-feature-cover

I managed to get my hands on some piccy’s from Your Home & Garden’s March 2015 Magazine, including the picture above.

Featuring our humble abode.

And it’s making me a bit nostalgic given that I have changed a few things around in that time (because that’s just typical me and that’s just how I roll) but I am proud of what we achieved on a small budget.

So without further ado, here are a few pictures of our budget-friendly-TradeMe-loving-home from Your Home & Garden’s March 2015 magazine.  With commentary.

HERE WE GO…

House Tour Your Home & Garden Magazine March 2015 - Entrance

Still in the entrance. Upcycled deer antlers and a large basket for keeping shoes out of sight.

House Tour Your Home & Garden Magazine March 2015 - Laundry2

Looking toward the laundry. A collection of things. TPOH stands for ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’ of course.

In the laundry. A $60 church pew, lights from Etsy and wallpaper from Ebay means wear sunglasses!

House Tour Your Home & Garden Magazine March 2015 - Sewing

Still in the laundry. A leftover kitchen cabinet separates the washing machine from my sewing area.

Looking into the Dining Room/Kitchen. Check out my yellow foot warmers. Yes I am all class.

House Tour Your Home & Garden Magazine March 2015 - Dining Computer

Still in the dining room. A place for the computer and a bike to hold the ‘good’ wine. Just don’t drink and ride!

House Tour Your Home & Garden Magazine March 2015 - Dining

Yep still the dining room. Note those lights are now pink. The bunnies however are still frozen in that position.

House Tour Your Home & Garden Magazine March 2015 - Kitchen

The kitchen. A yellow fridge for $70, secondhand appliances and cabinetry (but new to us). Bon appetit!

The pitfalls of secondhand cabinetry meant an imperfect fit. Solution: an IKEA floating shelf fixed horizontally. A mix of old and new cooking books. Colour co-ordinated um yeah.

The dining room into the lounge. A photo wall created with pics from Instagram and dip-dyed Tolix stools.

House Tour Your Home & Garden Magazine March 2015 - Lounge TV

The lounge. Hello place to hide TV-related stuff.  These cabinets were formally bedside cabinets.

The lounge or the imaginarium. A painted hand-me-down bookshelf filled with curious things.

And there it is (was).  I’m still working on version 2.0.  But for now if you’d like to take a look at the write-up on our place from this feature, you can here.

I am a massive Your Home & Garden fan (if you didn’t already guess) and every month I relish the opportunity to sit down with a hot cuppa and flick through the pages.

If you haven’t already, I recommend you check out YHG’s FB page and flick them a like or better yet grab a copy of their latest mag and be prepared to get all creative and DIY-ey because that’s how it makes me feel!
