Hello Dear Reader,
It actually got too hot to go outside today. 28 in the shade by 11 am and just got hotter. I tried sitting outside at 4.30 and soon had to retreat indoors. I even bathed the dogs in cool water and just towel dried them to leave them damp so they could feel cooler.
I have wall paper which I inherited and don't like so I'm stripping it. It has two layers, a vinyl top layer and a backing paper underneath. I peel the top layer off really easily then I've sprayed plain water onto the wall paper and it just scrapes off.
It won't take me long. To keep costs to a minimum, we'll just paint the entire of the inside of the cottage white. Where we can, we'll just have sanded wooden floors or tiles. We don't intend to spend too much and want it to be simple to maintain .
I want to spend the bulk of what we can save on the mortgage balance. A home is important; a fancy house isn 't.
Over to you. Share your thrifty decorating tips to help me and anyone else, keep the house renovation cost down.
Love Froogs xxxxx
