The project that grows…..and grows….

I thought that repainting all of the interior doors in our house would make a HUGE improvement to the very haphazard existing paint job.  I was right, after a couple of coats of paint they look fresh and new and have helped make the house look a little more finished.

But now I want to paint the door frames.  And the skirting boards.  And the lounge.

I can see how DIY can become a totally infectious disease that eats away at your weekends, and your afternoons and evenings (as happened to me today), but here’s the kicker – we don’t even own our house!  Hahaha, we just rent.  And I STILL DIY every place we rent.  Our landlords seriously must laugh all the way to the bank when they see us coming, because the houses we rent always look better after we’ve been and gone!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
