Yet more DIY

And yet more photos of our work in progress. This is what the fireplace looked like this morning after lots of banging and bashing with a hammer and chisel yesterday (my husband worked very hard and decided that he didn't need to go to the gym for the next few days!).

I also stripped some wallpaper and found a glorious shade of caramel (that's putting it politely), which matches the carpet perfectly. I hope that wasn't planned by the previous owners. The ceiling has been skimmed and that is a very similar colour too - looking very tan-tastic in the lounge today!

These are our dining arrangements. The camping table folds away after breakfast.

My girls stripped the wallpaper for me. They did a fantastic job, not sure why they needed to wear wellies though.

As a complete surprise, the folding doors were fitted today - I only found out this morning that they were going to be fitted within the hour, rather than after this coming weekend. Will do another post soon with photos.


  1. I can't wait to see it all when it's finished. We have lots of renovating to do on our house but I'm just not motivated to start it at the moment. I'm sure when I see your work finished I will feel inspired.

  2. I find wearing wellies makes most jobs more fun :)
