So we’re finally in and unpacked (except for a few rooms, where the doors will remain closed!). Despite the lack of posts, I’ve been wanting to share with you all of our progress with our house. Unfortunately, my mobile reception is fairly rubbish out there – hovering between one bar and nothing. So whilst running around the house and garden, trying to upload a photo to FB/Twitter/Blog, is amusing to those around me, its rather a nuisance.
Anyhoo, see below some of my instagram photos – apologies for the quality my iphone was the only camera available at hand.
A nice, warm summer’s day to move in – 43 degrees! The pool certainly got a work out that day.
Luckily for the wide verandah’s – they provided invaluable for storing all of our furniture whilst painting.
Painting – we took 3 days to paint the following, before we moved in - our main bedroom, lounge room (below), dining room, bathroom and hallway. Replacing some ‘traditional’ greens and maroons, with grey’s and white. I was amazed with how light and airy the spaces became.
Next we started on the hallway, again replacing maroon with white (Dulux White on White) and adding in a decorative chair rail. Below the chair rail, we painted a warm blue (Dulux Passionate Blue). Overall I’m really impressed with it and looks like its been like this forever!
At the moment, the lounge and dining are looking finished (except for the odd skirting board here and there). I am sooooo looking forward to having some time off over Christmas to finish all of these little items and start on the bedrooms (again replacing bright feature walls with white).
Finally getting to sit down and enjoy our new lounge with a glass of wine and Christmas edition mags! Will post again soon – promise
