Project bedroom!


How has another week passed by so quickly. 
I really don't want the school holidays to end and back to the alarm clock starts as of tomorrow. My painting will now need to fit in around normal everyday goings on!


This week all my efforts have been concentrated upstairs in our new bedroom. That has meant a LOT of prepping, painting and more painting - so many coats.


But 2 nights ago, we spent our first night 'upstairs' in our new bedroom - a real novelty after 9 months sleeping downstairs in the front reception room!


This morning I finished painting the wardrobes we had made. Now that has been hard work, so much painting and why, oh why did I opt for a whole space filled with shelves? Far too much painting involved but now they're done and we can hopefully move everything in tomorrow if they are dry.


The shutters are great, better than curtains and we get lovely sunlight flooding in first thing in the morning.


Jeff has been busy making a start on the outside and has laid the deck so you can step out immediately from the kitchen. It's a sunny spot in the morning and shady come the afternoon - perfect for Summer breakfasts outside. We eventually intend to get rid of the summer house in the corner as that is the sunniest spot but that might be a project further down the line. In fact the garden will probably take a good year or two or three.... due to lack of funds and time but as we've not intention of moving anywhere else, it'll give us something to do!
