Before and after

OH has spent aaaages filling and sanding all the holes in the walls, gaps in the skirting and fixing a damp patch.  I did all the painting.  It's starting to look good but boy am I exhausted!  

I've used 2 tins of the leftover unopened paint I had in the garage and don't think I'll need to buy any more.  I've still got plenty of white Satinwood for the skirting so don't need to buy that.  

I've got a quote for carpet (way too much!!) so need to do more work on that this week.

I'm on holiday now for a week so I'm hoping to get most of the graft done then I can concentrate on the nice bits (curtains, cushions, light switches, sockets, pictures)

  4. Your holiday is early-the schools here are off next week. We've still not had our hall carpet laid since the new heating(it's paid for) so today I phoned the carpet shop and adked for it to be laid two weeks today. Told DH that he now has to be finished begore then. He's making real oak strips for the door sills and all are fitting to different surfaces. Retired men can faff for Scotland and don't apoarently need their wife's help! I have some curtain fabric ready to make a panel for the inner door sobraring to go once the carpet is in place.
