Today we are having our long awaited floors down upstairs, we are having laminate that looks like white-washed boards to replace a moth eaten carpet, a carpet Mr G put down (inexpertly!!) and badly painted boards (in the boys room).
We spent virtually the whole of yesterday clearing out our room and the sewing room and cramming it in the boys rooms and bathroom. This is what the boys room looks like this morning:
My wedding dress to the right....
You can just see Dolly (my duct tape dress-form) there to the right....
We have had a restless nights sleep, not sure why although the room is cold feeling and echo-y and the bed was very creaky (due to no carpet? Hope it's not going to be like that with the laminate). Our room looks like this:
Although the boards in our room are nice enough to paint the rest aren't hence the laminate....
While we're looking at pics of our room do you think we need a cream/white bed? I have my eye on the lovely chunky metal ones at Feather And Black.
And should I take the plunge and paint the wardrobe? I bought it BC (Before Children) when I still worked (I worked for Zurich and on some anniversary or other of theirs they gave every employee £1000 bonus!!) and have always resisted painting it because it is nice waxed pine, but it is looking a tad orange these days and I do so love my painted furniture....
The sewing room:
Complete with our flooring man!!
Tomorrow we are having the boys room and the bathroom done so this evening we have to move everything back and then clear out the boys room!!
I'll leave you with a big hint as to what we are having in the bathroom:
