With a brush in my hand!

Hello everyone!do you like painting with a brush? Is that a yes?
I have been painting for the last few weeks and I can say I enjoyed it!
My hubby and I have been painting and redecorating a small kitchenette into a wardrobe and decided to 'expand' our .... activities!
We realized that the room we use as an office needed a redecoration too so there we were painting the walls , taking everything apart and then putting them back together again.Our kids want to participate too and that complicates things LOL So we work when they are asleep....!

The good thing is that it's a great way to keep fit, since I have been cooking and eating a lot lately...LOL
So here come some photos!After everything is back into place I will post some more!Take a look!

this is me on a ladder... painting!

After we took the kitchenette's cupboards out of the way ,
 we had to fight mould too!

this was the next stage

and here is the office

finally the office is almost done!My hubby and son are on their pc,relaxing!

There are still lots to be done ....  but I have found time to scrap!!Late at night of course...Some projects will be up soon!Ok time to get busy again!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today!Enjoy scrapping!


  1. It sure looks like a lot of rewarding work Lena. I'm sure you're going to be happy with the finished product. Great summer project! I know what you mean about working when the children are sleeping. When ours were little we did the same thing. It's amazing how much you can get done that way. :c)
    Lots of love, Robyn

  2. i would like to see the result!! good luck!!!

  3. Ανυπομονούμε για το αποτέλεσμα! Εντωμεταξύ καλή δουλειά!!

    Το γαλάζιο χρώμα στην προτελευταία φωτο βάφετε;; Είναι υπέροχο! Κάτι τέτοιο θέλω κι εγώ για το γραφείο (αν τελικά αποφασίσω να το βάλω μπροστά φέτος). Τι μάρκα είναι το χρώμα;

  4. Κι εμείς θα βάψουμε αυτές τις ημέρες και είμαι τόσο ενθουσιασμένη που θα κάνω χρωματικές αλλαγές κι έτσι δεν σκέφτομαι την κούραση !!! Πάντως κάνεις εξαιρετική δουλειά και στο βάψιμο!!!


  5. Αχ τι καλά! Μπράβο σου Λένα!!

  6. I think the summer helps for making such works.... We also have decided to build that extra room I was waiting ... and waiting....us my scraproom.... and what a great idea to give you also some sneak picks...
    Lena keep up the good work (painting the walls of your house or scrapping I think gives you the same happy feeling of creativity)!
    Keep yourselves inspired!

  7. Redecorating is the best! Awesome job. Well done on the painting. I recently painted a chalk board wall - I must be a wimp because my hand was so sore by the end of it! Let alone an entire space to paint and redecorate. Well done!
