~ Afternoon Sun ~
Lovely sunshine streaming into (what will be) our bedroom when I got home from work today 🌅
The chandelier is hung and looking beaut 👌 (excuse the cellophane still on the shades, I'm pretending it's to keep protecting them, when actually I've just too lazy to remove it...!)
Each week I think I'm getting closer to getting back into my bedroom, but then it looks a mess again 🙈 I spent last weekend scooping up old pieces of lath and plaster from below these floorboards, at some point they overboarded the ceiling below but left the old lath and plaster on above, which dropped off over the years and was sitting under my bedroom floor between the floorboards and the ceiling, interesting approach to take ... 🤔 poor Henry Hoover was a gem and sucked up 2 bags of dust and dirt 😵🤢 so it is feeling much cleaner and fresher in here now 👍 definitely more Feng Shui 👌 slightly wish I had taken a photo of below the boards, but at the time it was so grim I just went into crazy cleaning mode...! Not looking likely I'll be moving back in here anytime soon given the current floor situation 🤦♀️ #masterbedroom#bedroom#gettingthere#renovation#renovationlife#floorboards#100sofyearsofdirt#georgiancottage#periodfeatures#newwindow#chandelier#sunshine#sunlight#onedayillhaveabedroom#whenwillitend#worthitintheend
◇ Living Room ◇
I've been meaning to update on the work that was done whike we were away, but it was all outside and I keep forgetting to take photos, I'll try to remember tomorrow!
So here's an update on our living room. The second coat of Hauge Blue (@farrowandball ) went on the walls today, so pleased with the dark! The glossing has been done on the shelves and cupboards, I cannot wait to get nice things fill them with 😍
The second coat went on the floor today, it's Cornforth White (@farrowandball ), we had this in our previous house but I had forgotten how nice it is.
Finishing touches with paint being done tomorrow, then we can use it again! Just in time to light the fire (once all the clutter to can see is tidied away 🙈) for winter.
We've got 2 chairs on order, one should hopefully arrive soon, the other had 24 weeks delivery on it so that's not expected till end of Dec / early Jan! I also want a lovely rug, but haven't found one yet? Any suggestions where to look?
So when we restored the house, we made the front room into a dinning room.. then 2 years ago made it a 2nd lounge then 9 months ago back into a dinning room. Well on reflection we may use the table 5 times a year? So we had this beautiful room with a beautiful Art Deco fireplace that we might use 5 times a year, what is the point? So I’ve turned it back into a lounge! 🤣 it’s nice to have 2 rooms to relax in 🖤 Long term goal would be to extend kitchen across back of the house and make a kitchen/diner! But money and time (unless anybody wants to pay for it? 🤣🤣)
