that has been going on at my house is more or less finished so I thought I'd give you a little guided tour!
All the building work started because we needed to have new windows fitted....the old ones were 20 years old and in a pretty bad state! While discussing the work we decided to have the old back door moved, a window added where it was and a new door put in.......all because we were going to have a new kitchen at some point.....................some point then became a few weeks after the windows etc! This was back in October/November last year.
While the kitchen was being fitted someone commented that it would look even better if the wall between the kitchen and the very little used dining room was removed.........mmmm good idea.....so in January we had the wall removed......it used to be just this side of the light in the pic below.
Moving on then into the living room (just through the archway in the pic above) we had a wood floor fitted, then a new fireplace and fire
the wood floor was carried on into the hallway.......the stairs were stripped (I did it and it was one AWFUL job that I wished on many occasions I hadn't started) and a new carpet runner put in.....I've wanted one of these with stair rods for years!
up onto the landing where all the bedroom/bathroom doors were replaced with recycled old ones.....the final stage was re-decorating. It has been several months of hard work but I LOVE the results!
So, with all this work going on the last several weeks I thought I would have lots of time time to spend in my studio creating but it wasn't to be so my blogging has been pretty intermittent!
It is going to get worse before it gets better, there is going to be nothing on here for the next two weeks as I am off on holiday on Sunday! Am VERY excited as I (and my husband) are heading to
(it's in south-west Africa)
See you when I get back..........with lots of pics to bore you with!
