My favourite room in the house is finally starting to come together.
The original walls were in a bad way, so we had them re-enforced with plasterboard and a new coat of plaster. The original floor has been lovingly restored and the walls, skirting and fireplace painted white. I am currently working on the final details, painting the fire surround, and making curtains :)
Dan and I assembled the two Ikea Expedit units on Sunday. Sid helped, a bit. I chose a 4x4 and 2x4 unit, which fill my wall space perfectly with only about 1/2" to spare. I had originally planned the 5x5 unit, but it would be a struggle to fit in the parents car, and also I would have trouble reaching the top row of shelves anyway. I'm designing this room to work with my limited reach, as I'm fed up of not being able to reach into my own cupboards in our tall person orientated kitchen.
Fireplace where I am currently painting that black area. The plan is to have it sky blue with a rainbow.
Plug sockets under my sewing table :)
As I write this I'm sitting in my bedroom. Sid is in the window watching a bird on a telephone wire. And she's just started chattering for the first time. That strange high pitched chatter that some cats display while stalking flying prey. I'd hoped she would be a chatterer, so I am pretty excited about this :)
