As I might have mentioned, I’m on floors at the moment. The old house had wooden floors, the colour was great and they stood up well to everything we threw at it, often literally with all three of the children being little there. The whole ground floor was done at once as the last stage of the renovation, it finished the place off so well. The house had four rooms, a bathroom (in pink and black) and a kitchen when we moved in. We added two bedrooms and a shower room upstairs and bashed a few walls about downstairs to end up with a brilliant kitchen diner leading straight out to decking and a fab garden. We probably would have put a room on the back had we stayed, we had good times there, the decision to move to the bungalow once Dad died was a tough one but we made the right choice, definitely.
At the weekend I was looking back through the images used for selling the house, to remind myself the look of the old floors. I realised you may like to see them too, have a look. I do have to admit this was the day the house looked its best ever.
The next stage here is well underway, we cleared the middle messy pit of a room and, since it’s now empty, the decision is whether to just go for it and redecorate it before the floors are done. I’m for white in there, what a surprise, and C really fancies some wallpaper. Although I like a bit of white, I saw a great blue colour today that could work, the sample’s reserved to be picked up asap. One thing that is for sure, we’ll get rid of the light fitting, photos to come of that soon. This is the room that C has allocated as ‘his’ and he is thinking that a new Gibson ES-339 would be the perfect accessory for it. There’s a lot of chatting to do I fear. I’ll keep you posted.
