Busy day

Today hubby and I worked on the studio.  We are painting the boards with a thin house paint which gives the timber a limed effect.  We painted the two panels which we can't get to once they are installed and facing our neighbours fence.

I had to help hubby move and shift the panels into position.  Sophie chose to look on although she was underfoot at times.  Silly dog!

Two panels up.

Half the panels up.

We would have had another two panels up by the end of the day but I had to pick up the youngest daughter from a basketball game so our work was interrupted.  Grrrrrr!  Anyway, it is very exciting helping put it together.

Last week I decided I wanted a little more colour in our bedroom and installed these little lanterns.  Aren't they pretty?!

They look lovely at night softly glowing.

 Wishing every one a lovely week.
