I completely agree with Leonie Van der Meer! I especially love the kitchen splashback tiles. It's a pity they're no longer available.

I found this really helpful information in terms of exactly what you did and how much it cost. The before and after photos are so good to see what a difference simply painting everything can make. There is a similar cottage and renovation to this one that I am looking at purchasing (just need to convince my husband which is another reason why this article is really helpful). How did the front of the house end up looking? Love to see a photo.
