What has been your biggest DIY disaster?
Painting my daughter’s bedroom wall in Metallic Paint – we spent a whole weekend (or Gary did) applying this paint with a sheepskin roller, foam roller, wide brush, slim brush and could not get rid of the ‘streaks’ in it. Looked awful and had to paint over it with just standard emulsion.
 
Where and what would your dream home be?
Living in one of the beautiful big house on ‘First Line’ in Orangeville, Canada where my sister lives and being able to watch the sunrise/set over the lake whilst sat on the patio having a nice glass of wine and a good old natter with her x

Old pair of denim cut down shorts and an Easyclean t-shirt

Not sure if you would class it as furniture but my breakfast bar. Everything happens around here – socialising, cooking, eating, homework, tellings off!!
