#25Project Transformation 10: New Zealand!

This week I've been loving all things coastal and beachy, so what better time to share this beautiful coastal inspired #25Project from Pohutukawa Coast in New Zealand!

The Beachlands Community Trust, situated in a beautiful log cabin, is a community events space that provides arts and crafts classes to the locals amongst other things.

The wonderful people at Taylored Revival, their local Annie Sloan stockist, led the project and were there every step of the way. I thank them for all of their incredible hard work in this transformation.

It was inspiring to see just how involved the whole community were with the transformation of this space, from sharing their thoughts and ideas on design and colour schemes to pitching in with the painting.

I think the pictures from the project speak for themselves, so scroll down and have a look at this positive, joyful project!

Well done to all the team and the community of Beachlands for coming together to transform this cabin in to a bright, breezy and coastal haven!




  1. Dear Annie,

    Thank you so very much for the opportunity for this to happen. Your company and all the team have breathed much needed life into this quaint building, and celebrated its unique feel with the wonderful makeover. Dorophya and her team at Taylor Revival were so visionary in the potential of the Log Cabin, and forged forward, inspiring so many around. It is now a beautiful building, much celebrated and used for many, many different community projects. Thank you, the return has been a 100 fold, and it holds a special place over looking the bay.

    Kind regards, Jenny Carter (Beachlands Community Trust)
