What home looks like right now.....

Are you ready for this? Here's what the bedroom looks like with most of the movable contents of the living room in it, (although there are also 4 boxes in the hall, (see below), and 2 bags in the kitchen!). I managed to keep a space clear-ish to dry washing in, but it's some challenge to get in my wardrobe, I can tell you!! Notice too the splashes of paint down the walls and so on in here. It needs wall-papering yet and also most of the woodwork needs totally stripping and re-painting. Only the skirting board just needs rubbing down and re-doing. Sigh! Well, we do want it to look good, right?=)

<- The hall looks like this with all those living room boxes, decorating stuff and being in rotten, messy condition itself.=( Haven't decided on a colour scheme for the hall yet. Anyone got any ideas? I suppose the best thing I've thought of has been red and cream shades.

And this is the view from -> the living room door. Everything under cover, but the coving is totally mended and re-painted as is the ceiling. Sir also finished getting all the old wallpaper off and we plan to buy the new tomorrow. We get £150 of decorating vouchers then, which is a BIG help. He also wants to get some undercoating done tonight.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your stumpwork is lovely!! I so need to do what you are doing here. My house is old and in dire need of refurbishment--no money though!

Looks like you've already made some progress on the remodel. I've done that and it is a ton of work and not fun to live in during the process. Hang in there, it gets better!

Looks like you've got everything under control. Hang in there. Before you know it your house will be completed just the way you want.
Your doggie eyes look so real. Great job.

I don't envy you all that decorating - although there is some redecorating in my near future (I'm really not looking forward to it).

I've just been through your Webshots album. You've got some gorgeous work in there. I think we have a lot of the same taste!

Wow! That looks like a lot of work! I just found your blog through the SBQ link and I'm so glad I did. You have some amazing stitching projects going. I can't wait to read more :)
