♪ [music] ♪ – [Az] I’m Az. – [Jamie] And I’m Jamie,
and we’re from the Haus of Cruz. – We’re interior designers and stylists… – And digital content creators. – And out of every single room in that
house, we’ve got…I reckon it’s the best money.
We have arrived. Knock, knock, knock.
Whoa… – Look at this. I think this bench, it’s actually a good
size. We could probably resurface this with some
paint, yeah? – Yeah. I don’t like the timber arcs or the skirt. – I think we can go bold in here with some
color. – We can have, like, a runway show,
and like… – No. – New floors… – New floors. – …new paintwork… – New paintwork, paint the window frames
as well. New handles, resurface these cupboards… – All right, let’s do this. – Love it. – Ow! – I’ve just been on Pinterest,
and I’m just looking at some joinery. We could run maybe some dowels or
something on the front of the benchtop here? – Just under there.
Yeah. – Love it.
– How exciting. – So, what colors are we thinking we
should do for the bench and dowels? – Really dramatic.
Warm… – Is this benchtop not dramatic enough? – Yeah, that’s why we’re getting rid of
it. So, what are we going to do about a window
furnishing? – So, Bunnings will do a made-to-order
appliance for us as well, so… – Oh, that’s perfect. – Okay, first things first,
doweling across the front of the bench. It’s going to look amazing. – Yep. We’ll repaint the cabinets,
and put new handles on it, sheer curtains on the windows,
redo the flooring, resurface the benchtops and the tiles… – Repaint it, and finally,
new up-cycled furniture… – In the dining room. It’s going to look sick. ♪ [music] ♪ – [Woman] Hi, you guys.
– Hey… – I brought Bella to see you.
– Bella’s here! Aw, thanks for bringing some help, guys. – That’s all right. – Get your mates over for a weekend,
and get it done. It’s super easy to do,
you’ve just got to break it down into small, little projects. – It’s going to be a really big job,
so we need all hands on deck. So if you guys could start by just taping
everything up so we can start painting, and maybe sugar soap the walls. – Are we ready to go, Bella? I look super cute for our little drive to
Bunnings. There’s a lot of range at Bunnings,
but what we try and do is bit of research beforehand with a bit of purpose… – Not being afraid to look at all the
options. And if you do get stuck,
just speak to one of the team members. – Yeah, super helpful. Hey, Taylor. – [Taylor] Hey, how you going? – I’m just here to pick up that blind,
the custom one we ordered a couple of weeks ago.
– Yeah, yeah, no worries. I have a feeling this one’s going to look
awesome. – Thank you so much for your help, Taylor. – Thank you so much, Taylor. Say “bye.”
Bye-bye. Tapping my way to tap town,
because we need to tap. – Eye on the prize. – No? Okay, cool. – I think that one, matte black. – All right, let’s go to the counter and
get it organized. – Cool.
All right. The transformation begins. – After we prime the benchtops,
we need to let it sort of sit for about four hours before doing more… – Oh, that’s the curing stage, isn’t it? – Yeah. And then we’ll do the topcoat. ♪ [music] ♪ – That color looks amazing. – Yes. – Az, I reckon we’re keeping these for our
house. What do you reckon? – Uh, they’re not coming into our house. – So sexy. – Beach wall is almost done,
benchtop is ready to go for paint, and we’re just about to do the window
frames now. – Woohoo…
– Window, window… – So, new windows are really expensive,
and new framing, so we can’t really afford that on this project. So, we’re going to be using some Dulux
Metalshield epoxy enamel to change the color of them and bring them into today. ♪ [music] ♪ – So, we’ve got brand new tapware going
into the kitchen. But don’t be a silly sausage,
Bunnings have an install service, and they can come to you and install it
themselves. ♪ [music] ♪ – Tip dip. It is not fifty shades of grey,
but two shades of grey to create that contrast which will look great with all of
the up-cycled furniture that’s coming in later on. ♪ [music] ♪ – Look at this.
– Wow. – Look at this.
– Where did you find this? – Facebook Marketplace, $175,
bargain of the year. Give it a lick of paint and varnish,
and it’s going to look… ♪ [music] ♪ – Finding pieces that have character,
that have been used. – Yep.
– And it tells a story. Amazing.
Love it. – You know, you and I are the up-cycle
queens. – Big moment. – The primer’s dry, so… – Bye-bye ugly, hello fresh. And the great thing about the Dulux
Renovator Range is not only can you use it for the benchtops, but you can actually
repaint your tiles with it as well. – Nice one.
– Two-in-one. – Excellent. ♪ [music] ♪ – A lot of old houses have these timber
trims. Now, a really quick and easy way to update
them is to give them a fresh lick of paint. But, top tip, make sure you use this stain
blocker first. Because if you don’t use it,
what will happen is the timber bleeds through the paint, so you’ll be forever
painting over and over, and it will just keep seeping through. Lifesaver. – G’day, Nick.
– [Nick] Jamie, how are you? – You going to give me a hand, mate?
– Of course. – We’re using this great system.
It’s a locking system. It’s a cheap, easy solution to cover up
these lino floors. – Snap it off like that.
– Perfect. ♪ [music] ♪ – So, I have a bit of his blank canvas,
but we’re going to create something super cool with this dowel. – Well, where do we start? – So what we need to do,
we’ve got the dowels we’ll cut to size. – Yep. – We’re just going to use some of this
liquid nails, right, to actually fix it to the board. Clearcoat on the top,
and then it’s ready to hang. We’ve got the dowel. ♪ [music] ♪ – The doors don’t fit. – Jamie’s having a meltdown. – Well you see, the thing is,
is I’ve never actually put a door back on again. I’ve taken plenty off,
but I’ve never hung them. Crisis over.
– You fixed it? – Yeah, I just had to have a little diva
tantrum. – It’s usually me that’s having the diva
tantrums. I’m just over here with my sheer. ♪ [music] ♪ – It looks great.
– It is all systems go. Everything is happening right now. We’ve got the cleanup happening here,
the blinds are going in… It looks fantastic, guys,
loving that look. And the doggie door is going in right now. Bella’s going to love you. It’s looking amazing. Stay tuned, the styling part is coming up
next. ♪ [music] ♪ – You can just set it there. – Yeah. ♪ [music] ♪ – I can’t believe we did this. – Let’s talk about the
[inaudible] – I can’t believe that you came up with an
on-trend idea like using dowel under the kitchen bench. And take a look at it. And these floors, I cannot believe how
simple and easy they were to install. – Check out this benchtop. Doesn’t even look anything like it was
before. – It’s got this contemporary, white look,
with the perfect grey cabinetry. – Uh-huh, yep. One of my favorites,
there’s a $175 bench there that we repurposed. It looks brand new, adds character to the
space. And to cap it all off,
the colors in this space. Homely, greys…I know it’s fifty shades
of grey, but look at it. – I am so proud we’ve been able to pitch
in and make this kitchen and dining room the heart of the home. – I’m so proud that we’re still gay
