We left off after I’d spent the day tirelessly sanding and painting the trickier interior areas of the boat! Day three of the renovations was simply finishing these off (Cue James returning to take the glory!).
Day Three of the renovations actually felt the most rewarding, it felt like things were actually starting to come together some what, which is fabulous. The hideously sticky, but incredible frog tape was painstakingly pulled off most of the panels and we breathed a sigh of relief as the worrying shade of green paint settled against the wood and looks incredible!
But we had a much more important task than finishing painting a few panels and loosing yet more nails and dog fur, this time to the frog tape gods. Oh yes we had Ikea furniture to build. Not just any furniture … a sofa!
Since the purchase of Fantine, we have been searching high and low for suitable furniture, and Sofas proved to be the most difficult, trying to find one that wasn’t too long but wasn’t to short, wasn’t to wide but wasn’t to narrow, was a lot like putting on breakfast for Goldilocks.
Thankfully Ikea came to the rescue and we found a lovely little sofa there, whats even better is the covers are removable and machine washable, so we can help to combat coal covered hands and muddy paws. Time for the big reveal! This is one end as it currently stands, painting complete and sofa in, lots more to go but it’s starting to feel more homely and we are beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel.
