    Sydenham Hub Renovation – Day Trillion + 1

    This weekend I was looking after all the pop-up shop renovations, too, so there was a lot of zooming around in my car. It’s now covered in white emulsion. As is half my body and all of my clothes. Luckily […]

    Sydenham Hub Renovation – Day 963

    I don’t know. I’ve lost track. I think I’ve been scraping and scrubbing and painting this place for a thousand years… We’re getting there, though – I don’t know if we’ll open on Nov 26th, but we might yet! Photos […]

    Sydenham Hub Renovation – Day 7

    Ugh, I’m so tired after a day of sanding and rollering that I can barely even write this one up…, so here are the pics. Just one more coat of paint needed and the designery peeps can come in and […]

    Sydenham Hub Renovation – Days 4-5

    Oh goodness me, do I have a life outside decorating this hub? ……..No. Thankfully I have lots of fabulous volunteers to help me make it through…

    The photo below is the very last time you’ll see it this colour. Next time, it will be WHITE!! W00t! All has been scraped, washed, filled and sanded. And wiped again… Maybe a bit more filling. And sanding. And wiping.

    Sydenham Hub Renovation – Day 3

    What a pair of heroes I had today! Most people think decorating is fun because they like the painting bit – and don’t we all: great sweeps of white paint making everything beautiful like a snowy day.

    Sydenham Hub Renovation – Day 2

    Yeah, you’re going to be less than impressed by these before-and-after photos, so you’ll have to take my word for it: we took them from manky-what-MORE-random-screws-and-what’s-all-that-black-stuff-oh-dear-that-IS-a-big-hole-isn’t-it to smooth, clean and gorgeous, ready for filler.  Mr Myagi would have been so proud of our wax-on-wax-off sugar soap wash-down.
