A while back, I blogged here about the DIY tasks Ross and I set for ourselves.
It took a while thanks to a lot of laziness, combined with excuses but we have finally finished our outdoor table and chairs! You’ll remember that they were originally a dark mahogany style..Well, Ross and I changed it up completely. We sanded down all the chairs and table, and painted them with a couple coats of white wash. It was hard work but we are SO pleased with the results!
In celebration of our new table and chairs, I popped off to my local Mr Price Home and bought some bits and bobs to make it even more homely. I’m so happy with what it has become.
I also recently purchased a wall sticker or two from Stickaroo. My plan is eventually to make a photo wall around this, but I’m loving it as it is in the meantime.
I will start on the photo wall as soon as I can find some cheaper frames – they are ridiculously expensive, especially seeing as I’m just going to be sanding them down to give them a weathered look!
Ross has finally let me put more curtains up (he hates curtains, and grew up with either no curtains, or blinds). Blinds are a bit too pricey for us at this stage, and the ‘no curtains’ thing is just not working for me, so I bought some inexpensive cafe curtains in the meantime for our kitchen and bathroom.
Next up for the home improvement chronicles – my picture wall, and I will be re-doing our mosaic garden table!
Stay tuned. ;)
