Well, we’re getting there. Mike, Steve and Dave worked all day Saturday stripping the walls, which proved to be a major task! Sunday was spent sanding walls and painting woodwork. This is what the room looked like Sunday morning:
Not exactly lovely! However after a few more hours hard slog we definitely made progess. Skirting boards all painted white (I did this out in the garden and managed to burn my arms and the back of my neck!):
The fireplace is now white and looks so much better, and Steve started getting paint on the walls:
Hopefully Steve will be able to come back next week to finish. We’re already so pleased, the room is so much lighter. I’m off to look at curtains now…….
