The Easter long weekend is fast approaching and I even managed to get the Thurs and Tues off so it's 6 days of freedom for me
What have you got planned?
While I'm hosting a family feast, an easter egg hunt for my kids and a pool party with mates - I'm making the most of the free time to knock off a few projects.
1 - Ripping out the carpet in my Master and replacing with engineered floorboards.
2 - Replacing/installing wooden benchtop in laundry so it runs from wall to wall (approx 3m) rather than just a standalone unit. A new sink and mixer will also go in and I'll redo the splashback with subway tiles.
3 - Repaint the front of my house with a couple of greys and a feature door.
I'll do a post for each of the projects - looking forward to it!
@ProjectPete you've reminded me to lock a couple of days aside, outside of family visiting from interstate.
We're getting the house ready for sale at the moment, so sanding and re-staining the side and rear gates will be the priority.
I'm in the market for six new pots at present - the Yuccas in the front garden have gone too well, so they're ready to be split out.
I'll be sure to share photos.
Good topic @ProjectPete.
One labourious job that we are going to tackle is going through all our topsoil that has been deposited at the rear of our backyard by the builders and removing all the building debris, weeds and grass from it before it gets spread over our new garden.
Will also do some painting now that the weather is cooler.
I also want to try to make some concrete pots for succulents.
I'm going to be painting (as well as some of you!) my paling fence black so the greenery of the plants pop when spring comes, and measuring and costing up a new deck.
Black is a bold choice @sof! The plants should certainly look fantastic against such a dramatic backdrop.
We are also planning to paint our fence soon. Some of the palings have been replaced so it doesn't look great at the moment with them really standing out amongst the old weatherered ones. We are going to do a dark grey, something like @KingStreetReno's colour shown in this post.
@Jason you had me second-guessing the black after your post (actually it's Dulux Domino so not quite black) but turns out I like it. Phew!
Now to save some coin and get a deck down in this space in a month or two.
