|amazing how shabby it looks when you strip it all back...|
I have had a weekend to myself as Our Boy was on a scout trip and The Professor was at a conference. Great time to do some house projects...!
Our house from 1969 is not very old by English standards, but by the time we bought it 10 years ago it had been a rental property for many years and it needed a lot of work doing to it. One of the first things we did was to change all the single glass windows to double glass window (triple doesn't exist here)...
As I said at the time - I may come from a cold country, but I am not used to being cold indoors.
The rest of the house has been done step-by-step throughout the years and the only things left now are to change the interior doors, the stairs/stairwell, the master bedroom and the main bathroom.
So, this weekend I got busy with the main bathroom. When we moved in, it was army green.... 'nice'... NOT! At the time, my father-in-law painted it white for us and that was a great improvement! But that was now many years ago.
However, we didn't want to spend 1000's of £ on the bathroom at this point, but it was in dire need of some 'love' and I spent the weekend sprucing it up. I will get back with some pictures of the final result once I have had some help putting up some mirrors etc on the walls (no, I can't do EVERYTHING on my own...).
The next project will be my bedroom and then finally the stairwell and stair case. Don't think I can face another project for a while, so that probably won't be till after the summer. Isn't it amazing how the entire house becomes such a mess when doing house projects!
And then we can probably start all over again...
Oh, the joys of home ownership!
