Yesterday Mum shared some pictures of her shiny brass, and again I was inspired to face up to something I'd been avoiding.
Whenever I return home I hurry inside as quickly as possible, as the area around the front door is awful. The door is in desperate need of painting, the surface is uneven and the paint peeling, and as for the door furniture...
Chris and Holly didn't use all up all the lemons in their g&t so I set to work this morning. I now realise first thing in the morning is not the best time to do this as it means having to discuss matters with all the neighbours!
This picture is very flattering to the letterbox, it looked far worse in reality! I'd already made a start on the right hand side at this point.
I rubbed and rubbed, it took quite some time but eventually I made some progress
I'll give it another go at some other time, but this will do for now. Not exactly shiny, but not totally embarrassing! This spring cleaning is addictive, I sense a trip to the hardware shop for some black paint is in my future.
