Big progress on painting. Hubby has been very busy after work every night and most of the weekend.
The balustrading has required 4 coats. 2 undercoat and then two in the stinky enamel. The result is wonderful and the back half of our house looks so much bigger, fresher, cleaner and more welcoming. No more mis-matched timber. We are still yet to roll the walls (Antique White) and then there are doors, skirting boards and the stairs to sand and stain. Still a lot more to do but so far we are really happy with it.
