Now, today's post is not about the weather. NO. It's about something very dear to my heart.
You know, I think people fall into two categories, those who love renovating and those who would rather spend three months trekking across Siberia eating nothing but raw seal meat. That's not really a picture I want in my mind for very long, I can tell you.
Me? I LOVE it. With a capital LOVE! (Renovating, not raw seal meat)
I love the whole process...from the demolition and mess to the building and ultimately, the transformation. Have I told you how much I love it?
MONT got home from the beach on Saturday and while we were having a quiet drink and a chat on Saturday night, we decided to make a few changes and finally finish Number 10!
The first project is to relocate the back door... or move it slightly
What we plan to do is remove the study window and replace it with a smaller, single one. We won't sacrifice light though as the study also has French Doors opening onto the back deck.
We'll then push the doorway out so it gives me more space inside to install a floor to ceiling cupboard. It'll hold things like the ironing board, washing things and all the cleaning stuff...as well as the clothes airers, which I have to say are one of the most difficult things to find a home for...at least for me.
As you can see below, my laundry is extremely small and extremely cluttered and messy. It started out as a storeroom, but is now my laundry/junk depository.
So, that's the first project on the cards. It's not going to happen for a couple of months yet. But that's fine with me. It gives me time to start the planning (and dreaming) process. My favourite part.
The second project will be the main bedroom...but more about that a little later...
So, there you have it...more renovations at Number 10 coming up...I'll keep you posted about how the plans progress.
