Re-Decorating

We are doing a few things in this house such as the kitchen, laundry and the en-suite, then into the main bathroom to re-grout the shower.

Tiles for the kitchen floor & splash-backs, new oven and cook top, new dishwasher and an upside down fridge.  Into the laundry, new wash trough and floor tiles.
During the process of the total new en-suite we have moved into the 2nd bedroom and hopefully all will be completed by the end of June.

At the moment we have the fridge and dishwasher on the carpet in the dinning room, with plates, cutlery plus the essentials on the dinning room table.  Eating out is the norm until we can walk on the tiles, hopefully Sunday.

We are still retaining our blackwood kitchen instead of have white, as we both love blackwood.


The tiles just after they were laid.


The oven & cook top which I am waiting to use :)

  2. Hello:

    We can so well imagine the frustration of waiting for all the work to be completed in what really does appear to be a major undertaking. Indeed it must be particularly frustrating not to be able to get into your new kitchen at present. However, from all that you describe and show the wait will prove to be worthwhile and then you will really be able to enjoy all the improvements. Certainly it all sounds most exciting.

  3. I am sure that you will be thrilled with the results when it is all completed. It is very exciting to watch updating taking shape, but I personally dislike having people working in the house - sometimes though I just have to grin and bear it.

    1. It's all looking pleasing to the eye Rosemary. I don't mind work being done inside, it's the mess of dust that is a nuisance, but it's easy cleaned.

  5. You won't know yourselves when it is all done. We had ours done a few years ago now we are renewing blinds and paint. It is never ending.

  6. It's going to be lovely! I love the wood surrounding your cook top and imagining it throughout your kitchen. I've never heard of black wood before.

    1. Blackwood is wood from the blackwood tree which grows down the in the coast areas of eastern Australia and Tasmania. It's a hard wood to work with, and it's expensive when in fashion.
