It’s not just DIY-crazed blokes who can spend hours in hardware megastore Bunnings. We love it too. Here is why:
Bathroom Accessories – So much opulent shiny chrome and porcelain. I freely admit this is escapism from my lime monstrosity.
Gardening – Don’t tell anyone, but if you drag a display hammock over to the display fountain and hide behind a couple of large potted ferns, you can actually have quite a nice nanna nap. Take a sampling of edible plants along if you like a pre-snooze nosh.
Storage Containers – I harbour fantasies of having one of those wardrobes where everything is in colour coordinated boxes and bins. At the moment I’m just happy when I find my shoes at the bottom of the pile of clothes that my husband likes to call the “floordrobe”.
Paint Chips – The colourful rainbow of nicely ordered paint samples, that you can pick out and take home and agonise over. And the names – Linseed, Sea Cliff, Oriental Spice, Wild Dove, Harold. Wait a second – Harold?
