My painting arm is hurting

Last Friday and the weekend were spent painting the feature walls, digging the trench for the telstra cables and installing the letterbox.

We are really thrilled with how the feature wall colours have come out. Very bold .. some very very bright (Sarah's room) but we love all of the colours we went with.

Today's visit (or should I say tonight) found that over 50% of the timber floors had been laid. I'm a bit speechless because I am ecstatic with how it is all coming together. Can't wait to see the carpet go in and it gets cleaned up. It's almost a shame to put our old furniture in there!!

Only 4 days to go and it's moving in day.... bloody hell, better get off the net and finish the packing!!

P.S. The tile for the bath was finally replaced!!

I love it all! It is looking great, those colours really make an impression.

The flooring is very nice, you are providing me with some inspiration by sharing this on your blog - thanks.

Any tips for getting nice straight cut-in lines on the feature walls?


Ps, had a bit of a laugh at the T-Shirt

Thanks for your comments on our house, we are really happy with the way it is turning out.

I appreciate the tips you gave me on the feature wall painting. I have done lots of painting myself but cutting-in always seems difficult and I have always got whoever is helping me to do this part!

Thanks again

Congratulations on your new home, it looks great.

Just a quick question - I know you built with Porter Davis, but I'm not sure which home. I'm just interested in the floor plans.

Sorry if you have mentioned it before in your blog. I have started reading your blog only recently.

Gotta say - if you'd told me before hand what colours you were going to use on the feature walls, my comment would have been a polite "ummm. That's different!"

However, they work - it looks great and your place is fantastic. Well done!
