It might not seem like much, but this is an amazing improvement!

I'll be back with proper progress pics soon.

The colour will be changing a bit as one wall is going green!

So, when we came to visit the house, we realised why they didn't put a picture in the brochure.

It had (very badly) fitted wardrobes across the alcoves and fireplace and along the wall by the door. It also had that textured ceiling stuff, also done very badly and uneven, across the ceiling that wasn't inside the cupboards.

The walls and cupboards had been terracotta but then badly painted white.

So, we emptied the cupboards and removed them (DH loved using brute force on them), replaced some floorboards, plastered holes in the wall and got a plasterer in to make the ceiling pretty.

This week we have put in some new skirting board, sanded all the wall and wood and then sugar soaped, put lining paper up on the walls and done undercoat and 2 layers of gloss on all the wood.

The carpet is being fitted tomorrow and we can finish the walls after that. Then the curtain rail and curtains can go up and then we can put the furniture in.

The wall opposite the window will be this colour

We will then be putting a tree decal on that wall and some woodland animals around the room.

I just about fell off my chair laughing! The room looks great but your choice in colour is called Jellybean which is my nickname and the colour is really close to the colour I am going to use in DS2's bedroom.

Love yours so far just tickled at having a beautiful colour named after me. :D
