They got hammered during their first room reveal, coming in as Chumps and facing some harsh criticism from the judges for their sitting room. Now, with only a few weeks left on The Block, are Lara and Brad tempted to go back and fix some of their early mistakes?
"We still really like our first room," Lara says. "We have said all along that we're not going to go back and change rooms. Because I think that is, in essence, what this is all about; you're renovating and you're going to make mistakes."
And even though they know better now, Lara says their early design flaws aren't too much of a concern.
"You make mistakes and you pay for them — and you move on," she explains. "You just have to say, 'Well, that was then and this is now.' We still really like our front room — we think it's a great room!"
Despite this, Brad and Lara both admit that in the past few weeks, their ability to style their rooms has improved exponentially. Although, it's still not something they particularly enjoy.
"We still struggle with it," Brad admits. "Like, with our wooden table last week, I'm not afraid to have a crack. I have never made any furniture ever, but I'm not afraid to do it, because it's a practical thing. But styling is the exact opposite. I have no idea and I wouldn't know where to start."
