Husband has been working on the hall for me..................I have been sanding, hoovering dust etc. A lot like our real life!
I had been dreading stripping the hall as the handrail had been glued on after the red felt carpet had been fitted and I knew the little wooden spindles would all fall off and they did!
Believe me it was like sanding matchsticks and I broke several that then had to be painstakingly glued back together.
However they do look much better now! The wall panels are maple and look just lovely - as you can see I also have a new hall carpet and a smart new floor.
A wee close up of the maple panels, shaped, bevelled and fitted one by one!
The wood panelling has
continued upstairs although
not in the maple, the second
one is oak and mahogany is the third!
I have wallpapered above
as these were not full height.
The top hall is needing
pictures on the wall and
Two little handmade tables
awaiting table covers!
All the halls now have cornice and skirting.
I have ordered some new lights but they have not arrived - the beauty of internet shopping!
I have now wallpapered the bedroom, twice! If you remember I bought some books with srapbook paper and now have too many choices - I wasn't sure about doing the room in black and white but am happy that my wallpapering is much improved!
The lady of the house appears to be gathering hats, not to mention shoes!
So although I have not been blogging I have been busy.......!
