Show Room done!

Today, at long last I managed to finish off the show room at the garage. All that's left to do is the rest of the tidying up in the work room and a big clean-up out side. Tomorrow I'm taking the day off to tidy up around home, lawns and garden are very neglected and I need to launch myself into the box of projects I have received from Steph Milne, for the next NZ Paper Chase magazine. So much to little time to do it all in!

 Here are a few before and after shoots of the garage show room..... (sorry some will be repeats)

 ...I am very proud of my door...LOL, I had to 'bling' something up...I'm yearning to be back in my craft room now!

It's been a huge week!

Tonight I think I will sleep well. This week has been a busy one at the garage. At last I'm seeing improvements and thought Id share a few before and after photos with you,because I'm feeling very proud of my efforts!

 Still have some painting to go in here....

 Looking better isn't it. But just take a peek out of the show room door and look into the work room........

...this awaits for the weekend, so guess I should go and get some sleep!!!

Wow, Its only Wednesday, the days are all rolling into one of late! I am still scrubbing and painting at the garage, progress is slow but sure!
In the weekend, between coats of paint I managed to flick together a quick page...just because I was worried I might forget how to scrapbook altogether if I didn't do something!

 This page is rather a quick, messy one. Lots of spray, paint and ink!

  I even managed to use my Cricut to cut out a boarder...had almost forgotten how to use that as well...had to blow the dust off it!!

Thank you for stopping by.

Painting still

 Goodness me, I forgot what it was like to work this hard!! 
After two weeks of slog we are beginning to notice an improvement at the garage...white walls again!

I spent Friday and Saturday painting the walls. And today I re-painted the floor. Tomorrow I get to scrub the stone piece of the floor before I polyurethane it...yay for a change!!

After the floor I'm going to add a splash of colour to the white...looking forward to painting on a fun colour!

Cannot wait for the finish...then I can sit in my room and craft again!

Here is my finished latest painting

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
