August Project Mosiac....

Lots of furniture painting and a little bit of stitching!!

Mr G is off work this week so I have been a bit absent from blogland, apologies for that!! On Tuesday we had a picnic at the stables and the boys (all three of them) were horrified because I shared my roll with Crofter (our elderly grey pony), well actually I think it was the cloud of flies that accompanied him that horrified them most!!

Yesterday we went to see Harry Potter - very good it was too, I think all of the films have been very faithful to the books and I confess to being a little emotional that it's all over (how sad am I?!!)

Today we have painted the stairs and landing white and the boys room blue. W was a star and cooked pizza and flapjack to keep us going - at 11yrs old he's turning into a right little chef and this holiday has learnt to make cupcakes, rice pudding and flapjack all by himself - we of course supervise the oven bits.

Next month we hope to have white laminate flooring down upstairs and are having my Mum's lounge carpet for the stairs - it's not really a colour I would have chosen (being brown) but it's as good as new and free so will have to do. Our cats will ruin it within a year anyway (they insist of sharpening their claws on the top and bottom stairs!!)

It's amazing the difference a coat of paint can make, however the state of the carpet leaves a lot to be desired, I knew Mr G intended not to be too worried about drips on the carpet but blimey, you should see it!!

  1. Love anything shabby chic to, white laminate flooring should be interesting, so used to seeing brown! Good news about getting a free carpet, even though your cats will use it for their claws! x


Every comment you leave makes my day, so do take a moment to say hello....
