As so many people have enquired about our house move, and how things are panning out now we're in, I thought I might share a few shots of what has been dubbed "The Ugly House"! We finally got in just over a week ago, and I can quite honestly say, after the relief had worn off, there was a brief, "What the hell have we done?" Well, we managed to get over that, and dove straight in to stripping the little ones room of the awful woodchip (badly) painted a horrible orange.
It's all stripped now, and yesterday I spent the entire day cleaning off wallpaper glue, and sanding down walls- there is still more to go, but we're getting there- although when we removed the wallpaper on the ceiling half the coving fell down!
After 2 nights spent camping in our own house, these guys turned up with our belongings, and the good thing is that having things in the house covers up some of the awful, badly applied, paint and decoration!
I will have my own separate sewing room in the new house, and this is the teeny tiny box room that will be my cave to hide in, not sure i'll be keeping the wallpaper, as it makes my eyes hurt, and hopefully I can get round to stripping and painting it soon, then my lovely man will be building a sewing table and shelves for me. This is how the room looks now, with my fabric and sewing paraphenalia in it, I think we need to be very inventive with the storage!!!
And for the days when I can't remember why the heck we bought this place whilst I am dealing with the pink and blue ceilings (why the hell would anyone do that??) and gave ourselves all of these jobs, I just need to look at this, my favourite "room" in the new house- and where I had lunch yesterday.
