Sorry for not blogging, but we've been really busy bees. And somehow being on vacation makes you have a life away from the computer! I've finaly finished painting the wardrobe doors, still have the ones in our bedroom to do. But the guestroom is looking nice and sparkling white now with new doorknobs as well. It is strange how things just seem to multiply when you start to do some DIY... First it was a matter of getting the wardrobes painted, now its expanded to re-wallpaper the hall, paint our old coffe tables and put them somewhere else and buy a new NICE coffeetable to go with our new sparkling sofa and do something with the 'pinnsoffa' we bought on monday. We went to an auction on sunday, no luck with any furniture but lots of goodies in the nicknack shelves. I bought some boxes with linnen, christmas things, and a box containing all sorts of curtains, old lace and old lace tablecloths. That went quite high because there were some true gems folded in with the curtains. Pictures will be up later.

But he furniture was really tatty or very old and in dire need of careful resturation and sicne that isnt my strong side i didnt bother about them at all. But we got ourselves a pinnsoffa - wooden sofa for the kitchen. Rosie tipped us off when we went to her parents house for dinner on friday night (they are house sitting for a week) that there was a nice pinnsoffa just arrived in the secondhand shop she works in. So went to have a look on saturday and had it reserved in case of we found something nicer at the auction. We went and bought it yesterday and it is now sitting stripped of its old seatingcover waiting to be upholstered by me any day now. See i told you DIY multiplies!
