Making a house our home

Over the last week we have been busy working on our living skills, by decorating our room. After a few days choosing a colour, we decided on blue, so got to work preparing the walls. We filled holes, smoothed the scrapes and cleaned up the skirting boards. 

A few members of the garden project chipped in, helping to cut in around the skirting boards, plug sockets and switches before we got to roll the first coat on the wall. 

Once that had dried, we worked all weekend to do another coat and add the  finishing touches, hanging our collection of hats along the beam and our framed Forest Green Rovers football shirt back up on the wall. 

We have really enjoyed decorating our room, and the transformation from magnolia to our favourite colour has made it feel more like our home. We hope to be able to help some of our other friends transform their places and use our new skills again soon.
