I didn't realise how long its been since I last posted here,things have been so very busy lately.Ive been decorating my kitchen it was a hell hole,holes in cupboard doors,old 70s kitchen units in melamine beige,(yum),kickboards missing,trim missing and a warped sink,old walpaper on the walls covered in grease,ewww!!
Anyway,with the help of Pete,my lovely,we have tiled,painted,filled,repaired and made it look lovely,I used a special paint to make the old dark trims look like beech wood,and we put stylish handles on the cupboard doors after repairing them,the floor is new,the woodworm treated and now I have a bloody kitchen.
After decorating the dining room and lounge,the bathroom will need doing,what a mess,its tiny with dark blue seventies style toilet,bath and sink,all are broken in some way so need replacing with a nice white suite.
This house celebrates its 100th birthday this year,the plaque outside dates this terrace of about 10 houses as 1910.So its not bad for an old timer,the render outside needs attention and the roof which in this windy wet weather is leaking a bit,but cross fingers it wont get really bad,but then landlords should have insurances for that anyway.We will see this winter.
I know my landlord should do all this,but I like a project and I'm a glutton for punishment.Heaven help me....
