Just a very quick post from me today, but I had to share this sneak peek with you of my dining room - the builders exited stage left yesterday, leaving my bank account empty, but with the most beautiful new floor, which I'm completely in love with. I'm a little bit dazzled by the transformation, and have found myself stood gazing at it, planning where I'm going to put everything! The bottom picture was taken a few minutes after I got the keys back in January - the drab walls and dark floorboards sucked every bit of light up, but now the room looks lighter, brighter, and bigger.
As you know, I don't hang around, so I've just got the third coat of varnish down (my favourite Ronseal White Ash varnish). Skirting boards will have to wait a little bit, but I hope to get some furniture in there tomorrow. The beautiful old range in the fireplace is original, and I shall share some better pictures with you of it soon, as it's such a lovely feature. The kitchen still needs a lot of work, but I'm hoping to get some of the floor varnished once I've moved the furniture out.
Have a wonderful weekend!
