The concrete needed a fair bit of prep work to make it waterproof as it had large cracks which were leaking water into the rumpus room below. Also, we wanted to keep the old balustrade because the style is true to the era of the house BUT we hated the decorative detail that was in it (plus it was unsafe and I was paranoid that one of the kids would climb through it and fall to their death!)

The tiles are laid, the balustrade mended, stripped, painted and it looks sooooo good. Now I have to decide how to decorate it. I'm thinking lots of bean bags and a low coffee table. I should mention that it's now a Tassie Autumn and it's unlikely that I'll sit out there for more than 10 minutes before freezing so it might not be until next Summer that I even use the terrace but it is another job ticked off the "to do list" which is a mighty fine feeling in itself.
