The renos continue - the painters have been and have left the kitchen in a much better state than when they arrived......we are still living in the family room (well when we are there we are!) and the passage, dining room and lounge room are next in line ........here are a couple of before and after pics of the kitchen: ...we couldn't afford a full refit of the kitchen but I think the painting of the cupboards has made a huge difference. We took the last of the furniture out of the lounge room this morning and found homes for it wherever it would fit.........once the floors are finished and the painting done in this room we can get that part of the house back to normal......whatever "normal" is!
The floors have been stained a couple of times before being covered with carpet.....for the age of the house the floors are in very good condition which makes the finishing of them easier.........getting the carpet up and the furniture shifted out was the hardest part! The carpet looks amazing now....it is rolled up in the carport ready to go to the tip! The best it's looked for ages! LOL .......The curtains are down and will be dry cleaned next week - doing renos is a great chance to have a really good clean!.........but this weekend is strictly for relaxing and stitching!!
'til next time.................Lorraine
