The little old cubby house was never going to get away with being faux heritage colours for long. I still don't know how that colour scheme (cream, dark green and maroon) ever became popular in Queensland...was it a marketing ploy amongst paint manufacturers in the 80s or something? Who knows?
Anyway, the cubby house will be the Sow's Ear in miniature, boasting the same colour scheme as the main house (it sounds like we have an estate...if only!).
After the initial false start, we prepped the timber surfaces as best we could and got the drop sheets down. It's coming along quite well. I'll show you the final photos when it is all finished.

Again, ignore Captain Safety and his barefoot style renovating.
