I still can't believe Sean let me paint the hall in this colour, but i love it, every time i walk in the door from work, its the first thing i see and really brightens me up! No more brown doors! Yipee!
This is the 2nd bedroom, the cool blue guest room. I love this room and is my favourite one of the house, it's just so relaxing as soon as you enter, and i painted the canvas' on the wall above the bed, i love them too. Since these photos were taken we have replaced the hideous brown doors with lovely fresh white paneled ones.
Here is the finished result of the utility room and the downstairs loo. We didnt have any before photos of these two rooms. Before we started they had tiled walls, and the utility room had shelves on the walls and the previous owners had their fridge and freezer in here aswell as the original sink, and washing machine and tuble dryer. This is my getting ready room, i do my hair and makeup in here, while i eat my breakfast and listen to the radio, i love my utility room. Sean did the tiling in here and the loo, his very first time attemp and i think he did pretty good!!
The next job was the porch, unfortunately i didn't get a photo of before, but basically, it had sliding doors and one post of bricks with a full length window down the side. So i liked the idea of dwarf walls, and two windows either side of the door. This was the first stage, you can see the original door in this pic. We wanted to make to hallway seem longer so we now have an little entrance way to our hall.
Doors in.. There is our new hallway entrance! Brilliant!
My Dad was preparing to make a door here for a little understairs cupboard, so he marked it out and drilled some holes ready for the next day. But when we told the plasterer to 'fill in any holes you can see' we didnt think he would take it quite literally. He did.
In the kitchen, we decided to do quite a few things. One was knocking down the pantry, and removing the cupbard from under the stairs ( and make a little one from the hall way side), also move some doors around. So here is the kitchen as we started working on it, to the right you can just see the door to the pantry. This is where the understairs cupboard was, which is now blocked up. And this is my Daddy making sure the buliders had taken the pantry down right!
This is where it all started. In the living/dining room. We had the hatch from the kitchen blocked up and plastered, also the electric sockets moved and moved the radiators from underneath the windows.
A little bit about me! Well, i was a hairdresser for 10 years, i have been a manicurist for 5 of that, and in Nov 2011 i went on a Gelicure course. I had a carrer change in Jan 2012, to working for my in-laws at their office.... complete change but has given me time to enjoy the things i love and i look forward to progressing with my Nail side of things, as a hobby!I am also addicted to crafting! Mostly cards, but a have done a few scrapbooks! And i can't forget to mention my amazing husband, Sean. We have been together since 2005 and just got hitched in June 2011! We live in our beautiful new home that we spent 10 months renovating! Hope you all like my blogs! xxxx
