This post was intended for pre-christmas but didn’t quite happen…
While there hasn’t been a whole lot to report, we have been busy as ever chipping away at lots of little things, like new roller blinds throughout (remaining curtains and tracks have now been removed):
Swapping shelves between bedrooms (which involved some sorting of junk along the way):
The smaller shelves are now in the master bedroom temporarily but will likely end up in the 3rd (kids) bedroom again later:
And the large shelves which were in the master bedroom are now in the little one’s current bedroom and will move with him into the new bedroom in a few more weeks. There are some alterations to be made to these shelves yet to allow for hanging clothes and the smaller storage baskets. I also need to purchase some more baskets to keep everything tidy.
Grinding the odd patch of concrete where an old boiler sat in the new bedroom (this photo shows the drop sheet set up intended to keep the dust to a minimum – no photos of the process itself as I wasn’t getting the camera anywhere near it!):
Priming the walls and ceiling in the new bedroom (just getting started here, but it’s finished now):
Crafting up a cushion for a present (here is the letter I marked out on the inside of the cushion cover, which I bought, to use as a guide):
And the finished cushion:
Painting the trim around the lounge to dining, and office nook:
Building a new boat trailer… no pics of this sorry but it’s just to show not everything is house related!
Plus there have been a couple of trips to the hospice shop to dump old curtains and what-not, a trip to the scrapyard with an old trailer, a bunch of present buying trips and some making of goodies for Christmas Crackers:
You can expect another post like this in a few days after we’ve achieved a few more little bits and pieces about the place!
