As soon as the paint was dry in the dining I started making a mental list of all the other things that needed our attention. I expect this is a worrying sign that the house is taking over! So on Sunday we started the list hopeful to plough our way through it that day. At the end of Monday this is where we’ve got to so far.
To do list Things we have put off list:
- Hang up bathroom mirror
Complete bathroom floor (tricky cutting of the laminate needed to fit around the sink and toilet)
- Fit bedroom blind within window frame to block light
Make roman blind for dining room Paint wardrobe doors Paint wooden pelmets above windows (living, bedroom, dining room)
Donald was in charge of the bathroom floor as cutting with a jigsaw is beyond me. It was a frustrating job but the room looks great now it’s completed. The floor had never been completed because initially we thought we wanted to replace the bath suite and it would be better to lay the floor around the new sink and toilet. However as so many people have said before living in a house changes your ideas. We grew really like having a big old sink and a deep bath and now it will probably be one of the last rooms we change. So it is important to finish the flooring so the room looks complete.
I tackled all the painting on Sunday and the wardrobe doors look so much better. We also ordered engineered oak flooring for the living room, dining room and hall plus doors for all rooms. Wickes had a great offer on flooring so we thought we should go for it and it can wait in the garage until we’re ready to fit it.
