It's starting to come together......

Ok I starting this entery over a week ago so I've sat myself down with a coffee, and put on my new Adele CD and I'm going to blog!

My office, office and scrapping room make over is still in the sorting out phase...haha yes still!   But I am slowly making headway.

About 2 years ago I  asked hubby to make me a 'rolling shelf' to go under my packing table....So the other week  I packed him off to Bunnings with measuments and a shopping list and look what he came up with :)


It's perfect!  You can see how the paint has been worn off the floor by me pulling the tubs out and in all the time...A tub of paper or cardstock is heavy so this is much easier :)

We surprised Ethan with a cubby house (well a week ago now!)  DH went and picked it up and put it together while Ethan was at school, when he got home I did the whole covering his eye trick, and walked him outside for the big reveal.....

This cubby is about 20yrs old and made of solid jarrah!


 Gary had to make a sight adjustment to the roof to get it to fit onto the slab...
 All put back together....
One happy boy!!  Gary replaced the door hinges and gave it a new door handle....We are now trying to decide what colour to paint it...Mum thinks we should just sand it back and leave it rustic looking...
and of course what the first thing a boy does....climb through the window....

The back yard is still a construction zone, so of course with Ethan running back and forth from the cubby the house is full of sand.  But we have a plan, just need the time!
No scrapping from me....I've 'taken' a month off from Mystical so I can focus on sorting out this room and to painting the lounge room..... Haven't starting on the lounge yet, when I have this room done I will....

Stop giggling I will......no really I will :)
