As you may have suspected from my recent posts, not much DIY/decorating’s being done at the homestead at the moment. We’re obviously very busy people, and now the bulk of it’s been done, it’s so easy to take our foot off the accelerator and be a little bit lazy.
I’m going to make a concerted effort to keep going this weekend and get a bit more done in the kitchen, like painting the skirting boards. If we can do some sanding of the kitchen ceiling and get the beading done in the living room, all the better.
I’ve noticed that the living room looks really quite empty with nothing on the walls, so come payday, we’ll hopefully be able to sort that out. Given time, I’ve completely changed my mind about having the plain frames, and am now looking at mixing them up, like these from Ikea, which is where we’ll probably end up.
I had a look at the cheapie ones from Wilkinson’s and they were all imperfect and the joins had big gaps in them, so if we’re spending so much, and putting so much time into sorting the photos, it’s worth spending a bit more to get it right. We will have to go to Ikea and see them before we buy them though. These are from Ikea’s website…
