Getting creative 

It’s been a rough start to June for the VB’s after the crash but we have made it through the other side of what started as a very rubbish time. We have managed to stay positive and have been rewarded by being gifted a car for free. My parents have stepped up astronomically and gave us their old car which is perfect for what we need. With seats that fold completely flat it basically turns into a small van and that means we can now pick up free wood for creating things and start on our next goal of having a woodcraft business. 

With Mr VB being on holiday the week we crashed we were also lucky to be able to focus on other things and not stress about getting to work the next day. Living in a small village has its disadvantages at times especially when it comes to transport. 

With that time being spent at home with nothing to focus on apart from the knots on our stomachs, I tried to push my anxiety onto something more productive. I came up with a project for myself which is to decorate the whole house for little to no money at all. I started by thinking about our downstairs bathroom and how to sort the floor situation. 

The linoleum flooring left by the previous people who lived here, was covered in yellow lines and could be doing with replacing but with no funds to do so at the moment I came up with an idea. As we painted an entire wall in our old flat with blackboard paint for our dream board I thought, why not paint the floor with it? It’s water proof when dry and it’s great at covering anything. We also had a huge tin of it left over so would cost us nothing. With nothing to loose I set about painting. 

It took about 3 coats to be completely covered but it came out beautiful and best of all when it comes to using the bathroom, baby VB is kept entertained 😂 I may not be able to pee alone but I can pee in peace. 

We have done quite a few projects to try decorate the house for free and I’ll show them all very soon but for now here is a photo of our finished floor. 

What projects are you all up to? Are you like myself with a Pinterest board full of projects waiting to happen? 

Love always
