Today's painting story

After a week in bed with the flu - Ivan has been desperate to help, so we let him do some painting.

Dad spent yesterday and today fixing up the skirtings - these will go back when the floorboards are laid.

Elizabeth's feature wall (painted white) before the colour.

More than a splash of colour - the purple paint went everywhere - Elizabeth ran for the cloth, I told her to run for the camera.

The painting girls (we both can't wait to throw away our painting clothes)

Look at my room!

Daddy and his girl - Thanks Dad
It has been a long, busy few days, but we have the two rooms painted and tomorrow we begin to lay floorboards on the concrete floor.

lovely p hotos...the house looks gorgeous. Some day remind me to tell you the story of our lilac house. It is a good one!

And the work continues... it's looking so good Beverly. How many walls are purple? I'm curious how this room is going to look when it's done.

Enjoy your day and don't forget some down time for yourself!

Darlene, thanks for your supportive comments.

No problem at all Beverly, I know exactly what it's like! The house I'm in now isn't the only renos I've done, I was married to a carpenter and we did tons of renos. I used to work with him and it's not light work by no means.

I hope you had a great day, I'll chat with you again soon. I'm off to sort through the photos I shot today and might be up half the night doing that! lol
