New sleep spot

A four and a half month project to add a new bedroom to their home was somewhat disruptive to all four family members, but all agree was well worth the result. Once the bedroom was added, it was time to redecorate the exterior with Resene Aubergine on the roof and skirtings and Resene Portland on the weatherboards.


Resene Triple Tea now decorates the new bedroom, a very complex hue perfectly suited to this room.


More projects are planned with paint sitting in the can ready for application. Soon the lounge will be repainted in Resene Squirrel followed by Resene Flax in the hall, and with their DIY skills well practised, one expects another project will be just around the corner.
