The Bush - Part 2

One of the first thing noticed were these HUGE mushrooms growing in the garden.
I have never seen something this size before!!
Then it was painting, fixing up and unpacking. The place was in such a mess. These are some before and after shots..... the bedroom. The walls were a dirty brown colour and the paint was chipped and nasty looking.
With some paint, a whole lot of washing and curtains hung up, it looked a lot different dont you think?
The same for the bathroom. I am thinking that these people living there before me must have had towels the same size as wash clothes for the rack to hang them on was so low, anything bigger than that would hang in the bath or over your face if you sat in the tub.
More scrubbing, painting, removing nails out of the walls and then in the end, it looks fresh and clean again.
