Repainting the house

I am pretty sure that 20 years ago, I never said I was going to do it again, but alas it comes around that it needs it so Last weekend we got to and started.  It's only taken me 3 months to commit to the colour and even still as I started on the front of the house, I was still calling hubby who was at his favourite shop grab some more colour charts I am still not sure!!!
still testing it out

And before he was home, I had decided that he was going back for the big tin, yep I committed and it was all paint brushes at the ready to keep this is how far we got in one day....

So then it was whilst your still at Bunnings hubby dearest can you get me some RED paint, the front door's going RED.

 So home with Red paint and bigger tin of house paint in my designer mix  of Kikki K Grey (yes it's the same colour on their grey and white bags, i feel in love with it 3 months ago after a shopping trip). And some help from the hubby, yes I don't climb ladders - I do lay down and do low jobs, but no climbing for me - we progressed and progressed

Before sitting back and admiring the days work....this was last Sunday, the plans are to keep going this week...with a son and hubby at the back with more progress shots later
