Apart from the gardening we have also made a few other small changes around the place, including painting the small section of concrete on the front porch.
We ended up going with Valspar Latex Porch & Floor Paint, which was actually a brilliant product and after two coats, the front porch looked awesome. We had to use an etching product on the area to be painted and then the first coat of paint was thinned with water according to the instructions.
Heading in through the front door, the Mum also helped me re-merch the weirdo shelves that are visible as you first come inside. Originally i believe these shelves were actually a doorway into what is now the Den. Somewhere in between the house being a rental and then being put up for sale, they have blocked the doorway and hidden whatever mess is behind it with funny looking shelving. It’s cute though – I have my didgeridoo on display there, along with other odds and sods that have been gifts or picked up around the place.
She was correct.
But wait! What is that peeking out from the top shelf?
I have fun news – early next week I am hosting my first giveaway! I’m really kind of excited about this, but I promise to try and hold it in until then….maybe.
