Here’s an update on the fire place in our lounge.
An amazing transformation I think! 🙂
We’ve been suffering with a dark fireplace ever since we have moved into our house fourteen years ago. We are having a new carpet, so it’s time for a change. I would like the room to be a little bit lighter and therefore feel a bit more spacious.
It’s amazing what a pot of chalk paint does to start the ball rolling!
It’s like a breath of fresh air
The carpet arrives on Wednesday so I’ll keep you posted on how things go 🙂
Pictures of our hall before I decorated it, which to me had got rather shabby.
I had also taken the carpet up that I didn’t like.
Again wanting to decorate on a budget it seemed extravagant to use Annie Sloane paint on the hall floor. It actually doesn’t work out more expensive as you don’t have to sand or undercoat before putting on your chosen colour. It consists just of the colour and a top layer of lacquer, which cost about £40. The covering quality is fantastic so I chose to do only one coat. That with paint for selected wood work and the walls cost in total £65.00.
I now have a beautiful hallway. 🙂
