I hadn't realised how many stupid little jobs we'd put off, things like clearing out the tiny porch as you come into the house. This has been a dumping ground for years a we did various other big projects but if you follow us on instrgram you will have seen that a few weeks ago we finally got to grips with it and gave it a makeover mostly so we had space to park the new to us buggy I scored of eBay (its too big to fit anywhere in the house!)
As usual I totally forgot to take a before pic but believe me it was pretty awful! So this little space got a coat of white paint to freshen it up and we replaced the faded wood effect lino with a buttery yellow off cut I found cheap online. Rich also made us shoe racks for all out grubby trainers and boots to stop them piling up on the floor. Luckily we have tons of wood off cuts and old floor boards so he recycled them and I gave them a coat of white paint.
Its amazing what a difference its made to walking into the house, Im no longer apologising to people about all the junk!
The latest house job we're on to right now is sorting out the bedrooms so that the baby will actually have a room that's warm and mould free to sleep in. We have finally replaced the bedroom doors (bye bye 1970s cardboard horrors, hello solid oak cottage doors!) and Rich is even now trying to sort out the floorboards in the big bedroom which was the office and which we will be moving into. No pics right now but more soon if I can dig my ipad out from under the piles of sawdust!
