A Pool for the New Year

We are taking the New Year in full swing and 
starting our pool in a couple of weeks.

I spent yesterday painting the kids bathroom and toilet
and started doing doors and trim.
Mr R&B spent the day painting the outside hand rails.

We are determined to finish off the painting before our first 
anniversary of being in the house.

We had a fleeting visit to Sydney over Christmas to visit
family, there is never enough time to see every one and do everything.

I did get a chance to pop into the beautiful Alfresco Emporium on the Northern
Beaches, but came away empty handed sadly as everything
I would have liked was too big for my suitcase.

Here are some beautiful inspirational pool images I found.
We have a plan of what we are going to do
and are very excited to be starting.

Of course ours will be a little less grand but
we will have a covered pergola at one end 

We are using honed Himalayan Sandstone coping and pavers
and glass mosaic water line tile in a pearly aqua finish
with a light pebble.

Hopefully it will have a soft appearance and blend 
into the landscape nicely.

Happy Monday
