We have moved out of our apartment. And I am sad. I miss that place.
We are living with the in-laws in woop woop. No joke. We are surrounded by farm animals!
There was road kill at our front gate.
In terms of our house though, there has been a bit done. Not much since we were really busy with the move.
We had our floor sanding guy come over and replace some parts of the floor boards.
There must have been a wall there before or something and the filled the gap with the same wood but a smaller width, so we took them out and replaced with the right width. Once it is all polished, it shouldn’t look so noticeable.
Our first light switch!
(Psssst… what is it with tradies and grubby hands!)
Nearly all the architraves and all the skirting boards have been removed!
I am wondering what I will put in the ‘bay’ part of this room? Will I put my settee there?
I am also wondering what sort of window treatment I will have for this window too.
(P.S I LOVE my cornices! Not a good pick though)
SOMEONE PLEASE, KILL ME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
I went to try and get sample pots for about 3 colours. They were taubmans colours, well the shop I went to doesn’t stock taubmans, so I was stuck picking out other colours for sample pots, so I pick 5 more colours, then they couldn’t give me sample pots because the formulas they had were only for 4L tins!! So I as kindly as I could suggest that you just divide the numbers down to get a 500mL sample pot…..
Nope, I was lost on her.
I have the painter coming tomorrow (not to start, thank god!) but to just point out some things to him and see what he thinks we should do.
So I was hoping to slap on my sample pots while I was there. (need to pick and choose wisely when and what I do at my new place… because it is soooo far away from where we currently live)
Should I be picking 1 colour for the 2 bedrooms, the hallway and the living room?
It is such a small space I thinking I should. I want neutrals anyways. There is no point the bedrooms being a different sort of neutral is there?
Our painter uses Dulux, but I can’t seem to find a VERY LIGHT bluey grey.. BUT VERY LIGHT.
The only Dulux that I like is Limed White 25%. I have a sample pot of that, Ill try that tomorrow.
I can’t believe that is less than a month till my wedding anniversary.
Is it sad that we are thinking of getting for each other a granite mantle that I have fallen in love with?
Any money we want to spend needs to be for the benefit of our house. I can picture many a nice winter night in front of this together (so that is kinda romantic isn’t it?)
I am in LOVE with this mantle. It is granite. It is just subtle and gorgeous!
. . . . . . .
In terms of what needs to be done before we can move in is, paint, sand floors/stain/polish and then do skirtings and architraves (they are ordered, just waiting, then need to cut, paint and then put on the walls)
Then once we are in, we need to save our $$ so we can pull the kitchen out.
