|Downstairs loo cabinet, after the ‘paint job’|
Sorry I didn’t blog yesterday, the day was rounded off with Foster Mummy and Man Wonderful coming over for supper. They were just what I needed after a ‘funny old day’ and they have left me feeling ‘treasured’.The dogs had a play date when Max came too. It was a delight to have good friends over for supper who enjoy the simple things if life and take us how they find us.
Today has been a fruitful day of doing up what we have. I have painted the bathroom and the downstairs loo. The cabinet came with the house as was 1970’s orange pine. I had some Farrow and Ball French Grey paint so I gave it a couple of coats of that. I’ve been cleaning and getting spare rooms ready as the ‘kids’ are home tomorrow. I got a bargain from Aldi when I last went of a boned out, stuffed and prepared turkey for £7.99 and as I have five to feed tomorrow, it will be just right. If there’s anything left, I’ll be doing creative things with the leftovers.
The bathroom and loo have been rejuvenated, we didn’t need to buy any paint for those rooms and we just used what we had. Our front gate is a rusty mess and needed some work. Dearly Beloved took it off the hinges for me and scraped all the rust off with a wire brush and left me to paint them. We did have to buy some Hammerite paint for the gate and the small tin we bought still has plenty left for any touch up work, or in case I’ve missed anything.
Here’s the before.
Here’s the after.
Here’s Froogs, busy as ever and enjoying any work that requires being out in the sun. So, do tell, what have you renovated recently to save you from buying new?
