Proudest DIY moment: I’m going to say our dining room. A pot of white paint and a wallpaper stripper gave us the best wall in the house. I had to work hard to convince my Other Half to leave the distressed chimney breast wall exactly as it was post wallpaper stripping. Luckily, after a couple of days he saw the attraction (and the shape of a Superman, a Scottie dog and the effigy of Christ!).

We’d planned to paint the built in MDF and pine shelves white, but they were also left bare. Love the warmth of the blonde wood against the white. So many people have asked when we are going to finish the decorating. Makes me laugh.
