You Can’t Rush Into Things

We moved into this house in June 1999 – 13 years ago. It took us two and a half years to build, while we lived in the shed.

At the time we told ourselves that we had to finish E V E R Y T H I N G before we moved in or it would never be finished.  We were pretty good about it too……. except for just a couple of things.

One was the doors on the cupboards in the hall.  For 12 years, they were open shelves – showing off our linen and all my millions of magazines and other “junk”.  Admittedly, the linen cupboard at the end of the hall was usually fairly tidy.

Anyway, last year Mick had a couple of quiet days with work, so decided to finally make the doors.  They were to feature brush box timber, (made from left over floorboards) and mini orb, as featured in the hall.  He did a fine job making and swinging the doors, but then got busy at work again before he could finish them off.

Finally, a fortnight ago he varnished them and this weekend put on the second coat and added the closers and handles. 

They look so good.

The handles suit them so well.

He’s rather a clever chappy, that Mick of mine.

Now I will have to try and have a tidy up of the contents, as they don’t seem to be as neat as before the doors were added.
