It's now sparkling blue..... and according to my blue lipped boys yesterday, "it's the best pool ever". Yes, they attempted a swim. It was freezing and despite hot showers afterwards, both my boys shivered all afternoon. Hubby purchased some little remote controlled boats for the boys to play with, from the sides, until it gets a little warmer to swim. There were shrieks of delight yesterday, with boats smashing into pool noodles and floaty toys just everywhere. 5am this morning, "Mum, can I go and sail my boat?". "When there's some daylight sweetheart".
Don't mind all the junk in the pool house. There is still so much to be done. Took hubby all Sunday to sand the left hand side picket fence, for painting. The pink fence will soon be white and the rendered wall will be the same grey colour as the house. We are installing flowing white outdoor curtains on the pool house posts and of course looking for a nice white outdoor setting. We will have lots of greenery in pots, around the sides of the pool.
We put a tile band on each step in the corners so that there would be no bumped heads on steps.
Close up of the blue pebble fleck. All the edges have been smoothed off so this shallow area, with the spa jets, will be lovely to sit on, in summer.
So that's our pool for now. I hope to have a 'before and after' reveal, once we paint everything and add some greenery and some furniture. I just need to get through the internal repaint first!
