When I caught up on some of my blog reading this morning I was inspired by Louise's from Table Tonic's energetic painting weekend. So when I inadvertently stumbled across an old tin of grey paint while looking for decking oil in our shed, I opted for the "more results quicker", forgot about the decking oil and decided to finally spruce up the ugly white boards at the front of the house.
Of course I forgot to take a before picture so here is the front porch being set up the day we got married.
And this afternoon when I had finished the first coat of grey
(and yes, there sits another of my half finished projects, a couple of cane
chairs I am in the process of repainting).
May I just say, I rolled my ankle twice during this supreme effort of mine - firstly when I fell off the chair I was using as a ladder and secondly, a few hours later when I fell through the chair I was using as a ladder because it ahem, broke. Nicole, the universe is pleading with you.

Have been back for over a week from our mini-break but the chaos of Christmas is engulfing me and I've been stalling like a silly thing. Of course we did have a lovely time, sun, sand & family. What's not to love? Well, too much sun apparently, or at least that's what we think was the impetus for Mr. B's violent vomiting resulting in a midnight dash and overnight stay hooked up to a drip in the little local hospital where we felt like we'd stepped back in time and on to the set of A Country Practice :)
