Making an entrance

At last, the painting in the front porch is complete, which I an very pleased about. It's a lovely shade of pink, which looks really nice in today's bright sunshine :) The only thing left to do is the floor, but that'll be MrL's department, taking up the old tiles and putting down slate ones to match the hall.
The coat rack came from the tip :) - it just needed a good clean up and a wax, and although one of the top rungs is slightly wonky, it's a great find a while back. I'll put a basket on the top for gloves, dog leads, etc, then there'll be umbrellas and coats on the pegs, with teh shoe rack underneath on the floor.The front door opens against this, so will hide it a bit if it does become a bit of a jumble. On teh other side, we bought a very nice piece of oak, which MrL cut to size, and I polished up with homemade beeswax polish - even the shelf smells lovely! I've put up my celtic blessing roundel there, and a jug of spring flowers, and spruced up my sampler which bears the sage wisdom of "Dull women have immaculate houses" LOL

I can almost smell the beeswax :) Do you mind if I link to your nettle wine post? I am making some to your recipe at the moment, so wanted to give the credit where it is due.

Thae,Jacqui, please do!

Have you made it before? I'm hoping my nettle ale is ready this weekend; if it's any good, I'll post that recipe up too.
