Before and After (nearly)


Before 


After (nearly)

I just have the skirting to paint white and then I'm ready for the new carpet 😎 I would have finished the painting this weekend but thanks to someone lowering my chair at work without my knowledge (or permission!!) I hurt my back when I sat down.  I did try to do some sanding but it just made my back hurt.  So I'll finish the painting next weekend.  Can't be helped.

I've ordered my new carpet and it will get fitted during the Easter holidays.  So I have 3 weeks left to paint the rest of the treads and get started on the high wall up the stairs.  I don't want to be painting once the carpet is down.

OH and The Teenogre fitted my lovely new brushed chrome sockets and switches last night.  They really make a difference.

It feels like I'm nearly finished! πŸ™Œ

    1. Thanks! Every room I've decorated I've replaced the white plastic sockets with brushed chrome. I think they look good especially on white walls

  2. Yes-brush chrome here too although husband detests them. Your makeover is beautiful and look forward to seeing it with the carpet in place.

  4. Your painting looks good! Congratulations on getting it (nearly) finished. Years ago we painted the whole house interior in yellow, I must say it looked much better when we repainted in an off white called “clotted cream”. Funny how fashions change!

    1. Yep, in the 90s I painted all the downstairs rooms of my house a lovely sunshine yellow (except the downstairs loo which was lilac!) I loved that wee house! The only reason I'm painting everything white is that it helps sell houses round here. Plus buying white emulsion paint in bulk is really cheap!!

  5. I always think brushed chrome sockets and light switches instantly make a place look so much 'posher' and more elegant. It looks lovely.
