This is the Dormer window that was in our bedroom- you can see how low the ceiling of it was.
This is the dormer after it had been raised and widened, complete with plasterboard and lights.It was only widened by 1 foot each side, and about an extra foot of headroom, but its made the room seem enormous.
All plastered, including the cupboard Beloved Husband built to hide the combi boiler. Somewhere I have photos of this room when we first moved in- long before digital cameras! I will find some and scan them in- there were lots of shelves & cupboards that have gone now.
Just have to keep repeating the DIYers Mantra- It will look lovely when its finished…It will look lovely when its finished…
Seriously though, all the skirting, door & doorframe has been replaced( I think the old stuff was probably as old as the house, 100 years+), all varnished now, should be wallpapering this weekend. Lots of Ikea wardrobes & drawer units already in, new bed to be ordered for after the papering is finished, oh and next week is our 3rd Wedding Anniversary, so we are going to Paris for 3 nights!!! Going to visit the Louvre ( always wanted to go there), go up the Eifel Tower, probably take a boat trip up the Seine, then fit in as much else as we can. So I will be missing again next week, but back with some fantastic pics ( I hope) the week after. Have a great Wednesday, and I will catch up with all of you when I get back from work (or tomorrow, more likely).
