So I painted a wall...


Just a quick post - I wanted to show you the difference a little paint can make.

Back in April we bought a waterblaster and cleaned up our very mildewy roof terrace.  After being blasted, this wall was begging to be painted, so I managed to negotiate a nice shade of charcoal in my (terrible) German at the local paint store.


We are really enjoying the terrace now and I have planted cherry tomatoes, basil, rosemary, bay, strawberries, parsley, chives, lettuce and a lemon tree, which are starting to yield some yummy results.

If you like the bunting or the toadstool stool, I have a couple of tutorials coming up that show how to make them...  Watch this space.
