Anyway back to the forever house, its a busy week here, we finally had internal doors fitted after removing the 70's style top to bottom bobbly glass style ones when we first got the keys, waaaay too dangerous with 4 boys plus various friends running around the place. Now as you can see the top half is again glass but reassured bloggers it is safety glass...lol! I knowi ts daft but I really love these doors, I havent seen this style before and as I have a thing for tongue and groove they are perfect. I also love the handles, shiny and very heavy, they look beautiful, they came from Handles for Doors and I can definatly recommend their service.
Thursday see's the arrival of French doors and windows for the family room, I originally wanted wood french doors but the quotes were way more than uvpc, so I've been waying up the pros and cons, the house will be warmer and they will be easier to maintain as I know myself and hubby will forget to treat the wood..tut tut. I'm definatly going to have a wood stable door when its time to replace the back door!!
Saturday and Sunday is decking day, as I've had more or less free reign in the house to decorate, I suggested to hubby that he could do so in the garden, he was straight on the blower and had the decking man out within days, so hopefull by Sunday we will be looking pretty much finished apart from the hall and landing which I have no clue what to do.......suggestions greatfully appreicated! There's still bits and bobs left to be tarted up like the boys rooms as we quickly just painted the younger two's bedroom and did wallpaper Max's tiny box room with CK footie paper but thats all we've done in them!
There are two new additions to the living room or I think I might start calling it a parlour....lol.....feels very posh! The first is the bookcase, which was my bargain from a gorgeous shop in Cardiff...Rossiters, its the sister shop of the one in Bath but on a smaller scale. The first floor is heavenly, full of gorgeous goodies and treats and the basement has furniture which is where I found my bargain, but I am a bit dubious as the original price was £1100 and I got it for £185. Now it is beautiful but I doubt very much if the original price was that as I would never pay it even if I had the spondooleys too but at £185 ta very much!!
The second purchase is the mirror, bought from a lovely interiors and gift shop near to me, I thought it was diffrent to the ones I've been seeing in other shops and magazines and the wood frame matches the bookcase so well! Dont know whats going on with the circle thingy in the pic of the mirror!!
