Summer House Makeover September Update

Well the kids are back at school so therefore the sun is shining, typical. I've been working on the summerhouse over the weekend and it's coming along. Although at the moment, it does look like a scout hut!!! I've finished the cream painting and will start on the pale green accents as soon as I can get out into the garden. Unfortunately real life problems such as having nothing for tonight's meal stops me from starting as soon as I've posted this blog entry. So it will have to wait until I've been to the supermarket .... (nothing super at all, I hate the flippin' things), but anyhow I digress.

Here are the photo's of the make over so far.
Steve painted some of the ceiling but had to dash off to collect the two kids from the Reading Festival. They were too exhausted to get the train so we, as the kind parents that we are, rescued them. Steve is 6ft (180cm) tall and doesn't need to stand on a ladder to reach the apex of the roof, so he was a real help, to say the least.

Here is proof that I am actually painting the thing myself. I did the two windows and the double doors. I did 3 coats of paint all in all because the windows and doors seem to take a lot of the elements.

I really love painting, I find it very therapeutic. I can only use a small brush as I have very painful hands at the moment, and please don't get me started on my knees and back!!! As I paint I drift off in thought and I seem to be able to just relax.

So this is as far as I've got. I will post a few more photo's when I've done a little bit more painting. As for the accessories, I'm not sure. I would really appreciate some input on the subject. I've found a very small pot stove that I'm putting in it to keep me warm in the winter. I just hope it doesn't smoke me out thought.

Must got it gone 2pm and I'm going to get into trouble if I don't get on.
