We made this special family board set a while ago as a gift order for Grandparents ❀ Each board painted by hand, and the best part being more boards can be added when more kiddos come along 😊

This little tree looks absolutely beautiful in its new home 🌲 We love receiving photos of our boards in their perfect places in your homes! ❀

#itschristmastime #feelingfestive #happyheart


This was the first little tree we've made, and we just love how it came out! 😍 Photos really don't capture it well enough 🌲 It stands 75cm high, each board hand-painted, and my wonderful husband put it all together perfectly, including carving the star by hand β˜†

We are closed for orders for the rest of 2020. From our family to yours, we wish you a special Christmas and a happy New Year β™‘

So lovely seeing our boards in use at the Waste Me Not Sustainable Living Zimbabwe stand at Old Stables Market 😊🌿

We can't wait to start making boards again in a few months! See our last post for more details.

#handpainted #handmade #husbandandwifeteam


It's been a while since we've posted on here, but life is in full swing behind the scenes! 🌺 We will only be able to take on new orders at the end of November, as I'm writing exams for my degree, as well as working full time.

We can't wait to make more beautiful boards for your homes! For now, I'll just leave this pretty piece here, which was a special gift from one friend to another for her birthday πŸ’š

Take care β™‘


An gift order we made for a special Dad of a lovely little family ❀ Happy Father's Day to all the Dads today!

Our first time lapse of the painting process of this floral board, which took just under 4 hours to paint 🎨

Painting flowers reminded me of my O Level Art days, so I got out my Art folder and soaked up some inspiration (where I found some old paintings of sunflowers, of course) πŸ˜‰πŸŒ»

We can't wait to see where it'll be placed in its new home 🌻

These pretty little boards have found their way across the seas and into a British home 🏑❀

So far, we've made boards which are now in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Kenya, Guatemala, England & Northern Ireland! We never imagined this when we started this small business 3 years ago β™‘

Here's to the rest of the world πŸ˜‰

A sweet little sign we painted and put up this morning by our front door (The Est Nest) β™‘ Hope you are all loving having time to decorate your homes! 🏑❀

Today's creation 😍 This board was the very first one we ever made, 4 years ago, and has been sitting in storage since. We decided to re-purpose & re-paint it (all free-hand) as a surprise birthday present for my Mum β™‘ Her favourite verse, in gorgeous greys, with a touch of greenery 🌿☘

We normally make and paint our boards from home, on the side of our full-time jobs, so it's a real treat having more time just to paint! My happy place 🎨🏑

We are open for orders! Collections will need to be made after the shut down β™‘

#handpainted #handmade #withlove #husandandwifeteam


This pretty little board was a surprise gift for my best friend, sent to her across the seas a little while ago πŸ’™

There are so many things to be thankful for at the moment: true friendships, connection, cherished time with family, time to pause, breathe and focus on the things in life that truly matter, and of course all the home-making πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

Find joy in the journey, and look for all the blessings that each day brings. It really is a privilege to be alive ❀

#grateful #timetobreathe #bestill #thistooshallpass


We absolutely love seeing our boards in their perfect places in your homes! 🏑 These were aisle boards for our friends' wedding in December, and now they've made a beautiful gallery wall on the newly-weds' verandah ❀ oh how we love the twinkling lights too!

Wedding signs we made for our own wedding in September 😊 We hand-made them all, including the easel! They're now treasured keepsakes in our home ❀

Thank you Lana Morton Photography for these beautiful photographs, and for capturing our wedding day so perfectly.


Here are some of the boards we made for Christmas orders, with hours of work having gone into each one. No stencils used! In fact, we don't even own a stencil πŸ˜‰ just purely hand-painted beauties ❀

Hello 2020 β™‘

We had a busy Christmas season with our largest number of orders yet! Among those, we made one of the most special set of boards for my dear friend's wedding ❀ she was my bridesmaid in September, and I had the honour of being hers last month πŸ’’

These boards were placed along the aisle β™‘ and now they'll forever be treasured in her new home. What an honour to have made them.

We had the privilege of making these two boards for Waste Me Not, a lovely local shop which aims to help others live sustainably, plastic-free, and with a lighter footprint on our earth.

From photos sent in, we hand-made & hand-painted both boards. NO stencils or rulers used at all! 😊🌿
