I’ve been running around a bit lately, and so haven’t posted much about the work going on here.
The floor I was going to do when I get new carpet fitted in the lounge, as it seemed to make sense to do both together.
Painting the walls was originally in Tim and Nev’s list, but I actually quite like painting, and I am on holiday this week. So we took it off their list, on the understanding that if I hadn’t gotten around to it when they come back to do my lounge (probably in September), they would take the task back. So at the moment, I am rubbing down walls, and washing them down with sugar soap. I have half a tin of Dulux Soft Stone, left over from my conservatory, and I think that will complement the cream of the cupboards and tiles quite well, so I am going to slap some of that on, and see what it looks like. If it is good, then I can get a new can to finish off, if not, then I haven’t lost anything.
Aside from the walls and the floor, it is all looking very good. I love my one-and-a-half-bowl sink, which is nice and deep, and much bigger than it actually looks – I can even get most of my baking trays into it to soak.
The only hiccup is that I am spending more time than I expected moving stuff back into the kitchen. With all this wonderful new storage space (4 new wall units, and two “magic corner” swing out shelves, making my two corner units 100% useful), I have been dallying over deciding what should be stored where, to make the most of it all. Plus I need to decide where I am going to hang my teatowel!
