In a house like ours that need so much work, it’s rare that we can tackle one job without ending up having to do a string of other things. Removing the wall between the kitchen and the dining room is definitely one of those projects that involve what feels like a million other ones that then need sorting. But that’s not the only one…
Remember this little ongoing project?
It’s weeks ago that we last gave you an update on our guest bedroom progress. While recent progress has been slow, we have already tackled a huge amount of projects like preparing the walls, stripping and painting the skirting and most importantly sanding the floor.
But now it’s all go again! Our latest little project is having the electrics sorted – and it’s well overdue! Our pendant ceiling light is in a rather bizarre position right in front of the window.
The sockets are weird wall mounted boxes that are chipped and mounted in such an awkward position that the cable gets squashed against the skirting.
Well, it’s all sorted! This is what it looks like now (with a sneaky preview of our new little bedside table).
Our lovely electrician, Dave, did an amazing job (the room is actually cleaner than before) and we now have some great new sockets and a light that’s in the centre of the room!
We love the new stainless steel and screwless cover plates. They are so sleek and minimal.
But that’s not all that’s happened. At the same time as having the bedroom sorted, we also had the electrics in the dining room sorted. There was a lot more to do in there – more on that soon!
We’d better get a move on finishing the room, as we have guests coming to stay soon! At least a deadline should help us with the final push. Do you also work better under pressure?
