My favourite thing this week is my freshly painted house.
We have been on holiday this week and decided to re-paint the outside of the house. Although it is only just over 3 years old, I think the builder used the cheapest, nastiest paint possible, and probably only did one coat in a lot of places. As a result, it has faded very badly, making my lovely house look shabby. We started on Saturday and eventually finished this morning. And it looks beautiful.
Here's an "in progress" photo
The colour on the left was originally the same as the colour on the right. I love it when the change is so obvious.
And here is the finished article. A view of the kitchen window and porch. I know it's very bright, but it just looks right.
We've just got the cleaning up to do - we're very untidy painters - then maybe I could get some sewing done. Oh, after the gardening, which needs to be done before the rain starts again.
Pop over to Quilting in my pyjamas to see what other peoples Friday favourites are.
