Reno update- painting almost done!! Yeah!!

Well ladies, we are surely into the new year now! Hope this one's a good one for you! We went away for 2 weeks over the holidays down south as we have a van at a caravan park and it was great not to have to do anything but eat and sleep and fish and walk. The kids love going swimming and going on the biscuits! For those of you thinking.. what the? that's when you lie on a big rubber tyre or doughnut and get pulled around behind a boat! I tried it once and that was enough! Being dragged behind in a straight line is not so bad but when they go from side to side trying to get you off is another. Nope, I'd rather read my mags!

Anyhow, on to the fun stuff... lol! Here are some pics of my house where I have painted.. no more yellow,  just white and am loving it.













After I took this next pic I wasn't quite happy with the look, this corner has me baffled abit on how to decorate it as it has no purpose really. This was where the window used to be so now it's more of a reading nook I thinking.

so I put the camera down and after shuffling and adding a few things it now looks like this....








So there you have it. I am slowly putting everything back where it's supposed to go and giving everything a good clean as I go.  At the moment I am getting ready to do Lisa'a room. Today my 2 nephews are coming over for a few days so won't be getting that much done...   Hope you have all been well, take care, Maryann
