scrumptious skirting boards

no words.. just love.

more love that I only have to wait until next week to see them all painted up.

I have taken countless photos

Craft room, architraved and skirted..

It was a gorgeous day yesterday, we had all the windows flung open as we all worked away

This is what Mr right and I did yesterday - amongst the heating and cooling guys cutting in their holes and Matt working tirelessly to finish off the doors, architraves and skirting boards in time for the painter on Monday.

We didn't quite finish the vaulted ceiling (to be painted white) so back again today...

This is what the kitchen looked like last night when we left but today it is going to look a whole lot different...I cant believe we are up to putting the kitchen in - the last few weeks feel like a whirlwind! 
So much happening and SO much organising to ensure the next phase is all organised...
The kitchen guys want the butlers sink today - so I will get it out and unwrap it carefully just like a little girl on Christmas morning - I may not even be able to contain the squeals of delight... I really cant believe I haven't opened it.

This is what greeted me as I rolled out of bed this morning, a little stiff from a huge days work yesterday - most of it spent holding my arms above my head. I had a few "survivor" moments - pretending I was in one of those crazy "survivor" competitions...

 Relentless crafting in this house

Once this project is finished - the girls are super excited to be off to the tile shop -  to not only purchase the tiles and carpet but also celebrate in their relaunch of their new logo  and meet Polly & Waz and Tania & Rod who will be there taking part in the festivities!!!

Thanks for coming by xxx



  1. Gorgeous skirting boards. And I'm super excited about your kitchen going in! I remember painting...aarrgh, so tiring! Rachaelx

  2. have loved seeing the progress of your renvo ..... the pictures looking out into the country side make me want to leave city life and move into the relaxed country one. please follow:

  3. The simplest way to clean baseboards is to mix soap with warm water. Dip cleaning rag in the solution and wipe it at the surface of the board. Warm water is more effective at softening the dirt and adds to the cleaning power of your detergent.

  4. As it happens, sometimes a construction job will end up with a gaping space between the wall and the floor. Rather than redo the whole thing all over again, most contractors resort to using skirting boards to cover these unsightly gaps and give the wall a more finished look.

  5. When adjacent lengths have been metered, position them and check that they join neatly and are level. Small undulations in the floor, and therefore gaps below the bottom edge of the skirting are acceptable.

  6. It is amazing how many different styles and profiles of skirting board and people are going for these days, far from the standard designs

  7. MFD skirting board looks nice especially when furniture are leaned to it. It seems that the skirting board can compliment perfectly to your wood furniture as well

  8. mdf skirting is the best choice for your skirting board but then you will need to decide what colour to paint them, go with White or cream, because that will go with any other changes you make to your decor

  9. This will be useful for the readers. Anyway i really appreciate the effort of making this kind of post. I am very happy to find this bolg. Thanks for creating the page

  10. They also provide the more functional task of being virtual kickboards, designed to protect the wall from possible bumps, knocks and scrapes from foot traffic, moving furniture and vacuum cleaners. Skirting boards also provide protection for the wall from polish and floor cleaners.

  11. Perfect partners for your paint. The fact that you're using skirting boards means that you're concerned over the aesthetic value of your property. You don't want your guests to see those protruding, conspicuous joints of your walls.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - I love to hear from you!!!
