Dinning room

My Dining room
Because of the age of my house and previous paint jobs, that were dodge to say the least, the paint just peeled off in large pieces on most the wals

scraping the walls

In retrospect, my builder said I should not have been so determined to scrape everything off, the surface that was left was really chalky and difficult to paint even after being skimmed.

Scullery area
This 'fantastic' fake granite sink is about 700mm from the floor washing dishes brook my back

Orange paint dominates most of the kitchen and dinning room

The Kitchen
I scraped off the orange paint as soon as I could. There was also a think pine shelf running along the wall which I removed. The cupboards are "cherry-wood' melamine. At lease I have a gas hob.

New Direction... my house

My home

I am very fortunate to live in this beautiful home, it was built in 1929 and is in great condition for such an old building. Although the interior leaves much to be desired. So, slowly but surely I am fixing it up, I'm doing most of the work myself...with a little help form great friends and loved ones... and sometime a professional or two.
