We have been living at the villa for two years now and during that time we have been busy updating everything we can.
We have put up new fences all around, installed blinds, replaced the old hot water service, re-screened the sunroom, totally renovated the front garden, installed a dishwasher and planted a small garden out the back. We bought a new outdoor table and a BBQ and will install a shade sail to make our hot, west-facing back courtyard more liveable. Next we will update our roof and gutters, then on to the bathroom and laundry!
At the moment I am re-painting old furniture and the mirror that was my Op Shop find. It's all looking good! It's a very satisfying process making our surroundings all new again, even though it is a slow process!
