|Paul has painted over the dingy green walls|
It is cold and damp in darkest Lincolnshire today so I am playing indoors. My new console table arrived yesterday for the inner hall so I have been rearranging things.
The table is contemporary in design and my first thought was that it looked a little lost and not dissimilar to a computer table when it first arrived. But my plan is to hang an enormous mirror behind it and get some big table lamps to sit on top. I have temporarily ‘borrowed’ a canvas from daughter Kat’s stored belongings to give the room some colour. The red will be reflected in the mirror – when I get it.
Very much a work in progress but I am keen to get things done. We are not going to re-decorate until some of the messier projects have been completed (bathroom and kitchen) so I am just going to have to be patient.

Thank you Pat.Delete
The "inner hall"? It sounds like a term that Egyptologists might use when describing pyramid construction. Even so your inner hall is looking good thanks to your the live-in workman you brought over from France.ReplyDelete
I'm glad I decided to bring him with me.Delete
My Christmas crib figures would look good there. Looks like two of the wise men have already arrived.ReplyDelete
I'm planning to do something creative with all the holly and ivy I've got in the garden to put on the table at Christmas. My buddhas are very wise.Delete
The house looks beautiful already and patience always pays off.ReplyDelete
Thank you Yael.Delete
Looks like it's coming along nicely but I bet you can't wait for the bathroom and kitchen redo. Have you chosen your cupboards and surfaces yet? Warming up here but thankfully we've had some rain so have green grass at the moment.ReplyDelete
Thanks Helsie. Off to the bathroom showroom this morning to choose fittings. Kitchen will involve knocking walls down so has to wait until next year.Delete
What a beautiful hall......even better when you get your big mirror! Christmas tree where the light is at present?ReplyDelete
Christmas tree in the corner - you got it!Delete
As I said once, you will be able to add value to this bungalow. A handy option to have up your sleeve.ReplyDelete
Well yes, but we really are intending to put roots down here and not move again.Delete
It's a lot of work, but the rewards will be great!ReplyDelete
