My husband has spent most of the weekend working on the tables – 2 for the studio and 1 for the dining area of the cottage.  They are all BIG and look fantastic – he has done a great job.  The ones in the studio are on locking castors so they can easily be moved around – most of the time they will be pushed together and will comfortably seat 12 people that way – each with their own power point to use if they are sewing with a machine!  Separated each table will seat 10 people – still enough power points to have one each!!  They are mainly made from wood which used to form a mezzanine area in the studio.


More wood was needed for the legs of the table for the cottage though so yesterday daughter no. 1 and I got to escape and go for a lovely drive up to Heathcote (about 30 minutes north) to get some more wood from the building recycle yard up there.  It’s a gorgeous drive and the countryside has really greened up again in the last few weeks.



Also managed to visit a couple of antique and second hand shops and buy a mirror and two picture frames – they need a bit of work but I think they will come up fine.

I did do a second coat on the kitchen tiles so the kitchen is looking good – just needs the new bench tops installed, and the appliances refitted and it is finished too.


The cupboard knobs have been fitted since these photographs were taken so it looks even better!

We have a big working bee planned for next Sunday which involves lots of kind friends/family – hope to get the flooring in the studio installed and all the skirting boards fitted – this time next week the studio will look a lot different to when I left yesterday afternoon…………well that’s the plan.
