I set up my Instagram page @crack_the_shutters last year to document my passion for renovating, decorating. styling and doing diy in our 1920’s Cheshire home. I live here with my husband, 2 boys and our dog Danny. We bought the house 5 years ago and undertook a full renovation of it including extensions to the rear and loft. Despite having ‘finished’ the house I probably decide to change a room ever month. Luckily my husband is a bit handy so he is normally tasked with the hard graft and we love nothing more than a good bit of diy or upcycling! My Instagram page is an outlet for these constant changes and I find Instagram to be a source for total inspiration- which can be dangerous when you think you’re finished on a project!
