Yes, that's right. After almost three months, the main bedroom in our house is finally completed to the point where we can move back in! We have stripped out fitted wardrobes, had the walls and ceilings re-plastered (there was some dodgy artex going on), added new coving and skirting boards, had new carpet fitted, painted the windows from mahogany to white, bought and assembled a complete new set of bedroom furniture, put up new curtains and even installed a new radiator and plug sockets. It has been a mammoth job, and aside from the plastering and carpet fitting, we have done everything ourselves. The only thing in the bedroom that we had before was the bed, everything else is new or different. Of course, the room still needs finishing touches and a bit of personality, but I am just majorly relieved to have all of the big stuff done. And my book room can now be a book room, rather than a home for all our clothes etc.
New wardrobes :)
My favourite piece of furniture, the new chest of drawers.
Slightly random photo, but this picture best shows the colour of the walls.
And the best part - a whole wardrobe full of dresses. I live in dresses, saves the trouble of matching tops and bottoms.
The cat is loving finding all of the new places he can explore.
I'm looking forward to adding all of the finishing touches, that's the nice part about decorating. I have a Song of Ice and Fire print that will be going on the wall, as well as some pictures. I need to get some new photo frames for the bed-side tables, a mirror for on top of the chest of drawers and possibly some flowers too.
It feels extremely satisfying to have one room in the house done the way we like it. The rest of the house needs similar treatment, but not for the next few months or so!
