work in progress...

....the spare room - back bedroom - workroom...call it what you will it still isn't finished!!!

But something is....this shelf..

now looks like this,
this is after 2 coats of primer and undercoat and 2 coats of Laura Ashley eggshell in Duck Egg. I love the colour and the paint was a dream to work with but I think it needs another coat as in some lights it looks patchy!! But on the whole I am pleased with it. But man its big....its well over a metre wide and tall!! Should be able to fit lots of my treasures on!!Once I'm 'in' the room properly I can play about with the shelves a bit!! I just grabbed the nearest things - it won't ever look as empty as this again!!



The rest of the room has 2 days this weekend to get finished - I have booked the carpet to be laid on Monday so a certain somebody has to pull his finger out lol!!

Jobs outstanding are curtain pole to be bought and put up, blind to be put up, missing skirting to be painted and fixed in place, boiler cupboard needs wooden trim round door and the door needs hanging!!
I have every faith in him - he has worked very hard as this room was a shell, it was my eldest's bedroom when we first moved in and all building work we have had done has intruded into and altered this room - it was a mess!!
I'll come back and show you when its done - hopefully won't be long!!
