DIY Weekend

It’s DIY weekend like 2 episodes of Home Improvement sort of…thanks to Apah and of course I helped also la after I came back from the blogger gathering which you can read more from here & here.

So while Amah was out Apah put up this in the dining hall wall…


and this in our bedroom…

and this at the stairway..


and this outside..


and I stuck this on the kids bedroom wall…

and the drilling continues….pls don’t get this as it can only hold like 3 bunches of keys…


I continued banging nails on the wall and hung these…


while Apah continued drilling and put this up in the kids room

and this rack for garden stuff…


and this wooden plate which I found in my storage..


We had breakfast out in our new patio..and then lunch and then snack..(hahaha new “toilet”) ma..


When we were on the way back from church the kids were as usual fighting in the car…

then became loving for the camera…
