Good bye sage-hello stockyard!

 This sage coloured paint and wallpaper was probably a hit in the early '90's, but when we brought the house it was on my hit list to get rid of, it has weathered not too bad, but it always appears dirty.  With a whole 10 litre bucket of paint left from my bedroom make over I decided the entrance, stairway and laundry would get a lick of paint to brighten everything up!  What I did forget was how much I hate painting, hence it taking so long to finish, but the good news is I only have the laundry to do!!  The new paint colour was called 'Stockyard', very appropriate I thought!

You can still see paint sheet as hand rail still
needs to go up the stairs!!

The above unit got a quick lick of chalk paint and a sanding.  I am so pleased to have this part is finished, just a few small touches to do on the stairway, then some more photo's.
Enjoy your Tuesday, Michelle

Happy Mothers Day



Yesterday we celebrated Mothers Day here in NZ and we celebrated by having a High Tea, as you can see by the photo's there was a lot of laughs, it was great doing something different.  I hope everyone has had or is having a great Mothers Day.
