Apartment Therapy feature for Lilyfield Life

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments and emails on my last post. It seems that so many of you get why paint is so amazing and transformational.  I appreciate all your kind words and support.

This morning I nearly gave myself heat stroke painting the front of the house. We started early to do as much as we could before the sun hit the front of the house. I ended up using my Wagner spray gun to do all the enamel trim and then I hand painted the Dulux Limed White Wall. I'll share photos soon as I didn't end quite finishing it. I was so hot and even after a swim in the kids padding pool and a cold shower I was still overheated. I ended up going supermarket shopping. I came home with lots of dairy items as it was nice and cool near those fridges :) 

Beth who follows Lilyfield Life sent me a message to say that one of my all time favourite chairs has been featured on Apartment Therapy - go check out their list of 50 creative uses of dropcloths. There are some fabulous great ideas.

Have a great weekend and Happy Australia day to all the Aussies. We are still the Lucky Country.
