#12. Frame a picture

Status: Complete

I didn't specify that the frame would have glass in it. $10 at Reverse Garbage bought me a lovely wood-with-lacquered-hessian-trim frame, the perfect size for a wrapping paper map of Paris. Found some black cardboard beside the fridge for border and $3 at Bunnings furnished us with hanging wire. Framed and hung.

#17. Build a day bed

I don't know if it's technically "built" , but it is now a collection of neatly stacked and balanced planks, topped by floor cushions when weather permits. For at least a year, it was a very un-neatly stacked pile of planks, gathering slugs in the corner and looking at me intimidatingly. Then there was a photographer arriving in 25 minutes and "voila". Probably some sort of life lesson there.

Poor old blogger

A year of neglect and more than half my days gone. Not all is lost though - things have been accomplished!  Updates to follow.
