its been a while … 

Oh by golly … it has been such a long time since I have taken the time to sit down and write a post here! Needless to say I am still plodding away on the house as time allows! I will try and share a few of the little projects I have going over the coming weeks. Don’t hold me to it though … 😂

Can you believe we have been in the house a little over 2 years now! Still absolutely loving it but I have to admit that I am a bit disappointed that I haven’t got more things completed. Anyway moving right along … I have a new found energy whilst on semester break from uni and have started ticking things off my to do list.

The first is the ceiling in the living room! Its an amazing feature of the house and everyone who comes to visit comments on it. It makes the room feel light and airy and if you can remember we used pine lining boards to keep the cost down.

What I hadn’t realised was that over time the knots and tanin in the boards would leak through the paintwork and it made it look very messy, so I was left with little option but to re-paint the whole thing!
A painter friend put me on to a Dulux product called PRECISION … it took two coats but I think I have it covered and now I just need to paint the final ceiling colour to finish off. So much work but well worth the effort!

Still more painting to be done in here! I will post more when I have a bit more progress 😊
