Back room


We're getting closer to being finished! A huge, heart-felt thanks to Mum, Michael and Mike for taking time out of their crazy-busy lives to come down and stay with us for a few days. They really were the motivation and action behind getting the laundry and back room started! They helped us get the old concrete sinks out - fixed walls - put up architraves around the windows that never had them - got cracking on the painting - solved our procrastination with their can-do attitudes! So thank you, thank you, thank you! :)

We mostly come into the house from the back door, so this area gets the coats and shoes thrown in it. The floors have taken a beating from years of paint and neglect, but we gave them a good scrub today and it's coming up pretty well. Next it needs a good wash and a few coats of linseed oil.

The laundry is to the right of the photo, but no pictures yet - not until after the floor is done tomorrow! :)

Everything is painted the same colours as the kitchen - Goats Cheese is the white, Cheese Stick is the yellow. It feels like it's taken forever! So many fiddly bits! We must have used at least 10 litres of Cheese Stick including the kitchen! Mum and Mike got us another 4 litres before they left - I swore we wouldn't need that much, but they were right!
