I thought you might like a peek at how the country house renovations are going.
I've built a pantry in the corner of the kitchen.
As you can see I'm taking the house in a whole new direction.
The pantry has given the room a more interesting shape and created a nice little nook, perhaps for a dining table.
Lots of shelves to fill in the pantry!
Nothing's fixed in place yet...my plans are prone to change.
And I made a new floor - it took time and patience (I don't have much patience)!
Getting the colour right was the hardest part.
They didn't have the colour stain I wanted at the hardware shop so I bought a different one...and the floor turned orange.
I had to sand it and re-stain it with the colour I originally wanted but those little floorboards didn't want to let go of the orange. Rather than buying another stain I just rubbed black paint over it...
by some miracle it turned out ok!
I may not have patience but I don't give up easily!
