Up until a few weeks ago I was spending three days a week minding the twin girls from next door. It was a real labour of love and I was terribly disappointed when their mummy gave up her job to stay home and look after the little ones.
I decided I would make the most of the time and renovate the room downstairs where I do my craft work, keep up with the office work and where the twins had their toys and cots etc.
It is a big room (imagine double garage) with a kitchen in one corner and a bathroom attached.
Not to be content with plain walls I have decided to paint the bricks in a soft chalky grey (vanilla quake) which is lovely, and then to add some yellow (pale daffodil) in a diamond pattern.
The brick walls and wood panelling made it look very dark and gloomy.
I will paint the wood panelling last as I think it will be the easiest.
So you see I have been busy but I am really missing having time for sewing or other craft projects but it will be worth it.
By the way isn't the clock gorgeous.
