Painting my house 2014

Its time to repaint the house. The handymen have been in to do the major woodworking and now Ive taken over to do the rest. So far after a week, I have replaced rotten weatherboards and done alot of bogging. This will be my timeline of my progress. Pic 4/03/2014

The end product. Such a small area but it took weeks to do. sanding bogging sanding 2 coats of one colour, painted ceiling, cutting in was extremely hard as ladder could not get right into corners. Tiling with Encaustic tiles which I had to go to Melbourne to get, laying tiles, grouting, no more gaps, sealing and installing a wood surround and a wooden step. Added a little French Provincial seat and a pot stand a few plants and I think it looks really good.

Cannot decide on a colour so I bought sample pots of the colours that I quite liked. Taubmans Abstract is the colour painted on all the boards, then I tried Taubmans Shale Grey but it looks too purple, then I bought Wattyl Scallopini and today I bought a Colourbond colour called Dune which I think is my pick.

My front veranda I entered into a painting competition and won best exterior for my state.
