House painting.

We bought a house earlier this year, and are now working on renovating it before we move in. It was a big mess when we bought it, with junk left all through the house and yard.

We’ve done lots of cleaning, pulling up floor, knocking down an illegal extension, jackhammering up tiles and redoing the bathroom. It’s been pretty hectic. And now we’ve started painting.

Choosing a paint colour is hard. We took heaps of cards home and umm-ed and ahh-ed about which shade we liked best. We wanted something light and bright, without being too stark. Who knew there were so many shades of white out there!

We ended up choosing the colour “spiritual”. It was a lot darker than I expected at first, but now I love it!

Now on to choosing tiles and carpet and floorboards… Hopefully we can be moved in by the end of May.
