Refreshing the house

One of the things I love about New Zealand Christmas is that work kicks me out for two weeks and can coincide with some serious DIY weather.

This year I painted the deck at the front of our house.


Started off with water blasting the deck - beginning to look great already!


And then after two coats of stain. 


And the view from inside with our new foxy addition!

We went with a stain similar in colour to the inside floor boards.

Then to tackle the interior!


I really never liked this colour.  More dining womb than room.

So undercoat first...


Then the first coat


Then the second (and final!)


Our floorboards really ping in the sun!  I really love the colour.
