The Big Move & a short break

Hooray! Moving day is tomorrow bringing with it a very short break from blogging for moi & loads of upcoming home beautifying DIYs, ideas, tips, tricks & tutorials for you!

Follow my adventures in moving & keep in touch on facebook, instagram, twitter & tumblr.

Our new digs are full of potential so roll up your sleeves, get your imagination in gear & join me on a “before” tour of our soon-to-be stylish new home:

Welcome to our Remise (ree-mee-zay): an early 1900’s farm building that has been converted to a small 2 level house with a yard. An amazingly fortuitous find in big city Berlin & oh-so-conveniently located behind our apartment building – this pic was snapped from our balcony = a pretty convenient move – although trekking up & down the 62 steps lugging boxes & furniture will definitely result in some sore old muscles for a few days!

**the following interior photos were all taken when we first viewed the property and contain the filth, dreck, wall paint & remaining furnishings of the former tenants**

The front foyer is tiny yet functional & just one of the many unfortunate colours the previous renters chose to decorate with

The main floor bathroom with stand-up shower.

All of the scuzzy wooden furnishings will be removed & replaced with DIY goodness

The small room located beside the front foyer.

Walls will be painted gleaming white, the floor replaced with walnut laminate & it will eventually be our guest room

The living room.

The former tenants had divided it into 2 narrow rooms…we shall be knocking out the (uneven) wall, replacing the floor & transforming it back into one large open plan living/dining room.

The kitchen…there are no words.

Check out my thriftastic vintage kitchen furniture here and let your imagination take flight!

Moving on to the second floor with a fancy curving staircase that luckily needs nothing but a good cleaning!

The master bedroom.

Carpet will be torn up and oh so much more!

The upstairs bathroom.

You don’t even wanna know what I saw in that toilet.

My future studio – narrow but nice with 3 large windows!

It’ll be so much lighter & brighter with clean white walls!

The munchkin’s room…in desperate need of a paint job & her fabulous decor!

The attic – great for storage but unfortunately too musty & damp for much else.

and last but certainly not least: the (crazy overgrown) yard…a huge job to be thoroughly tackled in the spring.

S O   M U C H   P O T E N T I A L !

Wish me luck and enjoy a leisurely scroll through my tutorial index, thrifty inspiration posts + hang out with the eco-creators & refashionistas that I’m Totally Smitten With until my return…

  1. Oh Sheri, my legs are sore just looking at that beautiful long staircase! Have a fab move and I hope you have lots of helpers. I’m looking forward to all the DIY in your new home!

  2. In bocca al lupo Sheri! Good Luck!
    You make me homesick … even though there is so much work to do, you have a new house to decorate as you like and this is one of the greatest pleasures of life!
    I can not wait to see you at work in your new study in the next videos! 🙂
    A big hug: tomorrow I’ll think of you!
