Painting and painting.... And painting

Painting these coat pegs is taking a lot longer than I thought. They need a few coats each and lots of sanding in between. Enough already..... I want them on the wall now! And I think my neighbours would like their ladder back, seeing as I've had it since I was working on my daughters curtains. Oops. Keep painting/more sanding... Finish up now.

Well overdue......

I am finally getting to the end of my hallway DIY which was supposed to have been completed before Christmas. It has been a plan for about a year now but it was more work than I thought.
Peeling floral wall paper removed. Walls prepped and painted a soft grey. Wooden coat pegs made... Well, sort of, gloss painted..... Getting there..... The next week should see it finally finished and ready to go.

Babies and DIY.

For some reason I thought an extra child would be easy. I wondered why my friends with two children were so manic, often late and never seemed to manage to get anything done for themselves in the day. Ah Haa! How could I totally overlook that one? 
So I've finally discovered why..... Hence my absence. Babies and DIY don't mix too well. But the little one is almost 6 months now.... I've got to start training him up. Hopefully he will be more handy round the house than his sister. On with the DIY.... Lots to do and so far behind. I've not even started with my wedding jobs. (Hope my sister doesn't read this!)
