Dreamy bank holiday – diy, friends & food

It just so happened that the last bank holiday of the year was the first bank holiday in the house on the lake for Welly and I.

We have extensive plans for the downstairs of our home so we wanted to paint a bit and put in some colour before we get going with our kitchen extension next year:

I love Habitat so safe to say we paid them a quick visit. Our eBay antique and history-filled furniture are perfect backdrops to a punch of colour:

Upstairs is another story. We’re currently getting the second bedroom ready for mama and papa Hansen’s visit in September – check out Welly exposing the fireplace:

And ripping up the gorgeous chocolate brown carpet:

Between all the diy and interior goodness we got to have our first dinner party with my favourite gal over at the house called abe and her hubby herringbone kitchens which was just dreamy! We followed this with a BBQ with good friends enjoying the fab weather until the bats came out to play!

This weekend has been one we’ve dreamed of for a very long time and the fact that we did it all is another tick on the to-do list 🙂
