    Kitchen Bench tops

    Hot right now are glass benchtops! They can come in any colour as you paint underneath. I'm going to do my kitchen with this.... I think it's a bit more expensive than man-made stone, though.

    The 'improved courtyard' thread

    you're a legend, Peter! Thanks for your interesting posts... am looking at turning the smallish-backyard we have into something similar to yours. The veggie patch will be first, yours looks great. You're doing a great job. One question - are you adding things "as you go", or did you do...

    interior paint colours for 1930's gem

    Wow, popular colour, but I did my 1920s cal bungalow in Dulux 'Antique White USA', and the skirting/picture rails in pure glossy white. I love it. For the lounge, I did a "duck egg" blue feature wall, (I think it's called Taubman's Surfside Green), and i reckon it's in keeping with the house...
