As I wait for the electricity to be turned back on and I sit on my living room floor with my back warming against the radiator (and Mini R is napping), I thought I’d start a post updating you on the home improvements we are making.
You may have read my previous blogs regarding our downstairs, Mini R’s room and the master bedroom and yesterday work began on the master bedroom and en suite of our forever home. As a novice at home improvement (and a previous renter) I think I underestimated how much work would go into it and how much waste and mess it would create! Our drive is currently littered with the remains of our old bathroom (skip coming tomorrow!) and this is how it currently looks! Apparently the breeze block look is in this season! 😂😉
The hubby and myself spent a very typical Sunday mornin going to look at tiles and wallpaper in preparation. We (well, I) have decided to keep it quite plain so we can add different accessories to freshen it up when we need to so we are having large white tiles over the majority of the room with the tiles in the picture (right) as a feature strip down the shower and as a splash back on the sink. My favourite colour is grey so I’m going to have to be very careful not to have an entire grey house!
The bedroom had the hideous green fitted wardrobes ripped out and my mums lovely fella took all the wallpaper off the walls. Our friend has been and plastered the ceiling and will be doing the rest when the door to the ensuite has been moved and the raidiator has also been moved.
Nice eh? Ha ha!
I’ve decided on a white and grey plate for the bedroom with a feature wall in the wallpaper top left of the picture (right) and the rest of the walls in the paint to the right of it.
All the furniture is hopefully going to be from the IKEA HEMNES range, or something similar, as I want a modern, fresh and relaxing feel to the room.
It’s an ongoing project and I’ll be sure to keep you updated as we progress. For now, wish me luck!
