DIY: Day 1

The house is ours, we completed yesterday.  We can't stop smiling!  We move in on Saturday so we have 5 evenings to paint, clean and get it ready.

Last night we arrived at our little house in the countryside c. 18h00.  We left at c 22h00.  It was a long 4 hours of painting and trimming the HUGE hedge at the front of the house which we want to get rid of.  It was fun but I am so tired today and that was only day 1.

We have decided (hang on let me re-phrase that), I decided (hehe) on quite a vibrant colour for the bathroom, Mani is not yet convinced but I am loving it and think it is going to look super awesome once its finished.  For the lounge we have chosen "Soft Coffee" - we didn't want magnolia or white and "Soft Coffee" is a lovely light brown.  We may do one wall in "Chocolate Malt" but will do so at a later stage.  We just don't have the time at the moment.

Some snapshots of Day 1.

    Your first house...one of the most exciting times of your life. Soooooo happy for you both and looking forward to pictures of the progress.
    PS Mani...you'll have more luck painting with a brush than with those shears!!
