We’ve all been busy working and so not a lot has been happening around our house but Mr F (lets just call him Fred) has the school holidays off, perks of being a teacher hey!!.
He’s been busy building us a wonderful seat and cupboards to hide the shoes!!
Here is the porch area before. The old Shell boxes were holding the shoes.
The boys gave him a hand.
Doors for the shoe cupboards.
And finally a couple of coats of paint!
We’ve ordered framed micro lattice that will slot nicely into the space at the top. It’s going to be white and will just give us a little bit of extra privacy.
The cupboards are brilliant and hide all the shoes away. We don’t wear shoes in our house so the new seating is a perfect place to put on or take off your shoes.
The final thing to complete this area is to decide what to do with the concrete pad. I’d really like to tile it with some black, grey and white Encaustic tiles but as we’re not very happy with the way dirt and grime sinks into them (despite sealing them TWICE) we’ll have to look for an alternative.
