In the last week or so I’ve started to see the start of the DIY ads on TV, just in time for the Easter holiday. We’re being reminded to paint our fences or update the colour of our hallways and encouraged to buy a new kitchen. However, the cold weather has made it hard to believe that it’s time for Easter – the front garden is still covered in snow and the gutters have huge icicles hanging from them.
Anyway, we didn’t need anything (or anyone) reminding us that we should spend the weekend doing DIY on the house! The Boyfriend and I both decided to stay put rather than head off to spend Easter with our families and are pleased with the progress we have made.
In total we’ve made eight trips to the dump (the old kitchen units have finally gone) and have had a clean up so we’re ready for the builders to come in and work their magic.
Some of the progress we made this weekend includes:
3) Removed more of the tiles and render from the bathroom.
4) Started to strip back the paint on the door frames.
All in all quite a successful weekend…
