It's made a huge difference to my dining area! The shelves were overwhelming with their primer pink. They were ugly as! Now they just melt into the walls   

Well the one I did anyway, the other one is going to be more useful in my office, so not gonna bother painting it yet.

Ohhh I can do that. 

One of the walls has a big piece of gib and plaster where the fireplace use to be.  Sooooo I aim to have that painted, at least the undercoat by the end of the weekend (by the way a very big wall).

Andddd in the hallway another piece of gib and plaster - where a door use to be hehe.

 eek  I did my hallway, laundry and toilet walls a couple of months ago. Had to repair a hole in the wall and paint over it. But decided to do the whole lot.

Sadly, the board that was used here was cheap and VERY easy to dent and now I have to do it all over again    All it takes is a slight and there's a hole there.

 I wouldm't put ply non inside wall unless you want to vanish it . It would be hard to get a good paint finish on it , I think that I would also devalue the house as well.




 Well done scoods, I am pleased the egg head is helping you out.

A stick (post at each corner and two opposite each other about half way. Then put a piece of bendy pipe from one to the other on the opposite side, and it'd be like a little tunnel house?

   good idea dot. Collie has just told me that the black stuff isn't any good for being a hothouse type thing as it doesn't let the sunlight in and the veges will be stunted. Need to find some white stuff instead. And she's got a heap of goat s**t for me to use on it as well  eek

Sunlight is food to a plant - photosynthesis - it converts sunlight into energy.

OK to use as a wind block as long as the sun can still get to the plants.
