New doors

Love the doors not convinced about the varnish though.
Initially we’d planned to paint the two doors (kitchen & living room) white to match the skirtings and window frames but now with the oak flooring the doors look great as they are. The varnish we tried is medium oak and seems to add a yellow tone to the door. I think it might be back to B&Q for something lighter or just clear.

It is great to get more light into all the rooms during the day but also in the evening the light glows through the frosted panels.

What do you think of the colour?

Stage 2: Carpet up, doors and skirtings off.

Wouldn’t it be nice?

Say bye bye red carpet and hello to wooden floors.

The holidays are here and so the next project has started.   This is the biggest change we’ve made to the house as we’ve taking up the carpet in the hall, living and dining room.

There is lots to do aside from the flooring there will be new skirting boards and doors.  Needless to say we’ll be getting some help on the joinery front!  For now our job is to remove all the furniture so we can get the carpet out and be ready to start flooring next week.

Rip it up!
