My name is not Suzelle but I can do a little bit of DIY

I started a DIY yourself section for my home ages ago, updates  will be in bold

My brother in law moved so we bought some things from him and they look lovely in my home. (Oct’15)


What I want to do:

  • Hooks on the kitchen door to hang my and the girls aprons.
  • New Bin
  • Hang curtains
  • Buy a new pan & glasses

 Kids Bedroom

What I want to do:

  • Curtain holding thingies. – Lovely pink ones now hold the curtains back.
  • Green paint for walls
  • I want to put up a large frame for each child on the wall and fill it with all their achievements.

My bedroom

What I want to do:

    • Lamps
    • A reading chair with standing lamp – This will be a dream come true
    • Lights for mirror – I have to get lights installed by my dresser as it is way too dark to be able to do make up
    • Full length mirror that makes my boobs look huge and my middle tiny.
    • New curtains.
    • Curtain holding thingies

What I have done:

    • Bedside tables – I painted one bedside table grey. (Oct’15)
    • Headboard – Tara got a new bed and I bought her old base with head board. (Oct’15)
    • Something to hang my jewelry on to make it look less like a dress up box. – I have moved my make up and most of my jewels to the bathroom. Nail things in a cupboard and only hair items on my dresser. Huge difference. (Oct’15)


What I want to do:

  • Child & Dog proof Rug
  • Photo frame Wall – I am currently working on this. I have now sorted all my frames and have even put newspaper on my walls in the shape and size of each frame. this was 3 weeks ago and Hannes has still not put it up.
  • Standing Lamp
  • Curtains
  • Scatter Cushions
  • DVD Player
  • TV Unit

What I have done:

  • New TV – Hannes finally got his dream and bought an expensive flat screen tv (Oct’15)
  • We also got new couches and portraits to put up all over our house. (Oct’15)


What I want to do:

  • Hand towel ring and toilet roll hook
  • New colour coded with theme towels and bath mats
  • Nice pots for toiletry things

What I have done:

  • A magazine rack as Lorelai has also started “reading” on the loo – Its not really a rack, but a basket filled with reading material for all ages. (Oct’15)


What I want to do:

  • Outside cushions to sit on concrete stepping-stones
  • More lights
  • Table and chairs
  • A Dog Kennel

I am busy picking out paint colours to paint my house on the inside, currently some of my walls have patches painted all over them. 

My list has gotten shorter… Maybe some day soon I will live in the perfect house.

  1. Think I need to start a proper list like this too. Ive been dependant on hubby for alot of the “projects” in our home, with a result, very few actually get done – mostly cause he’s pretty much as busy as I am. So i think its time I do handyman’s tool course and start ticking off, like you’re doing here.

  2. I think I need a list like this too.

    When I’m retrenched i.e. next month, I’m going to do a shopping list like yours to compare prices and while I’m at I think I’ll also draw up a home improvements list like this – room by room is far more organised than a list that keeps getting stuff tagged on the end.

    P.S. love Suzelle. Did you read the behind the scenes interview with her?
