Last summer I decided that I was going to get the house in order. Before Miss B came along we gutted the house from top to bottom but the combination of having a little one running about, 2 mental kittens and redundancy meant that the house took a back seat and got a little unloved looking.
August 2012 saw Operation “Get this house into gear” begin with us ripping the halls apart which was a major job. I spent ages trying to find paper that I was happy with and thanks to the lovely Laura Ashley I did just that 🙂
Our poor hall was all bare naked then half done for almost a month because again in my wisdom (are you seeing a pattern here) I decided we should get all the internal doors replaced so that held us up for longer than it should have done.
I was absolutely delighted with the results and it still makes me smile on a daily basis so I know I made the right choice.
I gave the house a break over Christmas but we were right back into in in January but I will do some separate posts on each room as I go.
Here is the list I started with and how I’m doing so far:
Repaint New Curtains
- New beading for flooring
New suite Fix the spotlights
Repaint Paper New art Reorganise cupboards
- New accessories
Miss Bs Room
Buy a bookcase Reorganise all toys Reorganise wardrobe
- New Curtains
- New Wardrobe
Remodel Mr Bs cupboard
Repaint New Accessories New Art
I’m really happy with the progress we’ve made so far and it will be done by May and then the fun begins when I start looking outside the house, oh lord help me!
Here is a picture of my hall wallpaper, I LOVE it!
