The piccie above is the old door handles which I had kind of hoped would be brass after I cleaned up one of the handles to find was brass, but these & the other handle are steel so decided to paint them white & then distress them. Photos are not the best but you get the idea right...?
One brass handle & the other painted whited & distressed... lookin' good. So next onto the laundry no repainting here just a thorough cleaning then onto the *little hallway* leading into the kitchen. I honestly have NO idea what possessed me to paint this room yellow (along with my sewing room & bathroom) as I have never been a yellow person so when I started to clean the walls I realised I just could not live with this colour anymore. Friday was spent painting yet again, this time cream instead of white & boy what a difference! Yesterday I got in & removed some of my endless amount of fabric that I store on shelves in this hall, cleaned the shelves down & today when I put the fabric back, colour co-ordinated all neatly stacked have found that what came out does not necessary fit back in! So the left over fabric is now sitting in my laundry waiting for me to find room in my sewing room..yeah right.
Some of my fabric....
And some more...
Now I just have to find room for my boxes of lace, old doilies, ribbons, etc that once all fitted in here!
I didn't get around to finishing this post have completely cleaned the large hall & repainted the bathroom. Have started on our bedroom so am getting there! Leaving the two worst rooms until last.... the dreaded kitchen & lastly my sewing room, lord only knows where I am going to put all the *stuff* that is in there while I repaint it, going to be a nightmare I think.
Today my Sweet & I went to a Auction (after going to a 21st last night & only getting 2 1/2 hours sleep & with a rather bad hangover) it kind of took the shine off it a bit. Anyways ending up with a brand spanking new *loo* & vanity for the bathroom so although we were both suffering a tad what with all the noise was really chuffed to get a couple of real bargains.
OK so that's it for now had better post this before I forget .. again. Hope everyone had a great Anzac day, the one day Kiwi's & Aussies remember just how lucky we are to live in a free world.
