We've had our house since April, and been living here since June and doing lots of home renovations, so I thought it was about time I showed you some progress photos!
A lot of the big expensive jobs are over (electrics, gas, etc) and I think we're on to the decorating jobs now!
The hallway has been painted white, apart from our beautiful mustard yellow wall, that I'm in love with! Joe's started putting cork tiles down, which will eventually go into the kitchen, dining room and conservatory too!
Look at this original wallpaper under the stairs!
The lounge is the most finished room, it's just waiting for carpets and a new sofa.
We'll put bookshelves on the wall where the cheese plant is now. I'm halfway through stripping that G-plan chest of drawers, we'll put the telly on it eventually and get rid of the other unit.
The kitchen. We've had the central heating boiler moved, the cooker, dishwasher and washing machine put in, and the old cooker and washing machine (that used to stand in the middle of the room!) taken out and all the pipes dealt with. We are still, obviously, missing some essential kitchen parts, such as worktops and cupboards, but we do have shelves! And one day we'll have a door to hide those shelves behind!
We bought this super retro cupboard from the charity shop!
The conservatory, aka decorating-stuff-depository.
Honestly, some days I feel like I hate living here, it's taking a lot longer than I hoped and everything is such a mess. I hope these photos show it at it's worst, and things will only get better! We're almost ready to have carpets fitted (in the lounge, stairs and landing and bedrooms), then we can unpack and get a bit more organised. I miss my stuff, it's been in boxes since June!
