Weekend...

I am so glad that a long weekend has arrived as there are so many jobs to do! Many of you know I am in the process of renovating a 1930's cottage. The inside of my house is nearly finished with just a little bit of painting left to do. Which means I can start focusing on the outside - I am sure my neighbours will be delighted to here this.   One of the jobs on top of my list is my front door, which is currently painted 'mission brown'.  So it is going to be a weekend of painting for me.  

Have a lovely weekend!! xx

Sounds like fun...What color will you paint the door? I wish I could paint mine yellow, but not so nice with a blue house. Enjoy your weekend!

Painting is frustrating and cathartic at the same time. Enjoy!

Enjoy the painting this weekend - or at least the end result of your painting. What colour are you painting the door? I'm imagining a beautiful glossy black, but then of course I could be very wrong! Happy weekend. Lee :)

Aha! Expecting to see paint in your hair...and paint stains on your best T-shirt (at least, that is what happens to me when I start a project!)

Happy LONG weekend. Enjoy and revel in each second!

It is great that you are progressing! I would love to see faster progress with my own turn-of-the-century farm house... never enough muscle around!

I wish I lived there, it's gorgeous! I'm a swedish blogger longing for sun and warmth and summer can't come fast enough. Me and my boyfriend recently moved and are about to finish decorating our new home, so I can relate to the excitement you must feel to see the final result of your renovation. If you find at some point that you have a minute to spare, please visit my new blog at www.belladecoration.blogspot.com

Happy painting!
