Property Development ...

Coming soon, exclusive one bedroom apartments suitable for young families, beautifully situated in leafy surroundings ...

My latest craft projects! I found these delightful little bird and bee boxes for a snip, and thought I would have a go at altering/improving them! So, today was phase one of the property development when I painted on an undercoat (it's useful having just done our kitchen and therefore having things like undercoat available!)

Hopefully tomorrow I might get to paint them in their final colours, and then I'm planning on decorating/embellishing them, and finishing them all off with a coat or two of varnish.

I'll let you know how I get on! Hopefully a bit better than I did with the Estate Agent speak!!!

  1. Awww, these are very cute Carole! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do with them :)
    Sorry I've not been intouch lately, things have have been so hectic lately with sorting out builders and so on, plus working up at the school, although that's only for a few more weeks. Then it will be time to find a real job, lol!
    Anyway, I hope all is good with you. Promise to mail you soon :)

  2. You aren't going to be a slum landlord are you Carole? lol
    What a great project - esp. the bee house as I gather bees are in decline. I'm planning on planting some bee friendly flowers in our garden.
