Time to begin our DIY adventure in France! But where to begin? So much to do, we have lots of know-how but our tools haven’t arrived yet. Decisions to be made and a few lessons in negotiating the DIY path in a new country to learn!
In previous posts you’ll have seen that Jean-Louis and I had been on the hunt for various items of furniture, but the all-important wardrobe was proving to be illusive. We were feeling quite frustrated and definitely rather tired of living out of our suitcases!
Join us on our hunt through antique and brocante stores in Provence to find the perfect wardrobe.
After finding an ideal house in the lovely village of Jouques in Provence, Jean-Louis and I had returned home to Perth, Western Australia, to pack-up our lives and make the move to France. No easy task as we had gone on holiday within weeks of moving house, leaving our two bedroom, one bathroom town house crammed full of furniture and boxes from our recently sold, four bedroom, three bathroom, two living-room family home. We had even left a pool table taking up the entire dining room!
