Wow, this is my third post in three days. I am on a roll! I have taken some pics of the progress of our mini makeover of our very tired old home, a 1920's Queenslander that was renovated in the mid 90s. It was painted cream & a teal type colour - very 90s.

I couldn’t talk the kids into painting their bedroom white again. Their last two bedrooms painted whisper white and white on white. The kids this time insisted on colour & lots of it!!!!! They wanted green (eeek), yellow (maybe the Block Sophie & Dale's kids room was fantastic), dark blue (eeek), and pink… At last after a few trials of dark blue, they decided no way to that colour.

Porters Beach Club Blue & Porters Pink Ginger was their ultimate choices. Pink Ginger would of looked great, sadly when we were ready to buy the pink paint Porters store was closed 5mins before the advertised time of 2pm Saturday closing!!! I knew I should of got there earlier. So into Bunnings we went & after agonising over a zillion colours, Grace finally settled on Dulux My Wish.

I am betting on a colour change in a few years, but for now everybody is happy :)

One of the things the kids loved doing with their dad is checking on the crab pots.

Happy father's day.
