I haven’t posted anything for a while but that is because my family and I decided to have a bit summer fun to rest and also to reward ourselves after all the craziness and hard work that involves in buying a house and doing it up. And it was very much needed to tank up enough energy again to tackle the next stages of doing up our home.
And as the summer days are over it is back to work….
Now just a little recap, remember how we started prepping the hallway and ripping off those horrid blue wallpapers!? Well, we finally managed to have the storage, the sealing and the door we blocked up plastered! Woaho! Thanks to the hard work of Chris and his brother-in-law, Dave, the sealing and walls are now as smooth as a baby’s bum! And NO MORE HORRID blue sealings and walls:
Although it still looks rough and ready I am super glad that the dirty work is almost over. Chris and I decided not to finish the hallway and landing yet as the finished works are just likely to get ruined if we need to go through the hallway/landing whilst doing up the upstairs rooms. And so we decided to do up Joseph’s bedroom first. The little man got so excited when we told him that we will make his room look nice and new. Bless him, he actually keeps on asking his daddy when his room is finally going to get done. I seriously can’t wait to see the finish product just to see the reaction of my precious boy! I hope it to be like this: (sorry just had to seek in these photos, he’s so cute! 😄)
Joseph’s bedroom BEFORE (and yes it was covered in this orange wallpaper):
There’s no escaping it. Yet again we had to strip the wallpaper off, the sealing plastered, prep and decorate:
Here are some photos while prepping the room:
1. After the wallpapers have been stripped…
2. Plastered sealings (done by magnificent Dave and Chris helped out too)
4. Sanding down and white washing
As for theme of the room, think of a reading corner, blue skies, hot air balloons and airplanes and the rest I will leave to your imagination until the reveal.
Until next time my lovelies 😘
