Around the House

I haven’t blogged much lately, but I’ve been keeping busy around the house.

I painted the hallway. ‘Before’ pic below (with some sample colours painted on the left-hand wall)

hall 1

The green made it feel dark and old-fashioned. ‘After’ pic below – much lighter!

hall 2

I also set up some garden beds in the back yard. I wanted them to be raised, as we have a large dog, and also because an apple tree has the prime spot and I needed to work around that. To save money I used bricks we already had to form the edges of the beds.

Will be planting the garden beds out with veges in the next few weeks.

Nice to have you back Charlotte. I'll be tackling some home projects soon as well.
