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..chairWell, 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!

stickerI 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.

Stay tuned. ;)
