Snug so far.

Snug - chimney breast yesterday am....

 

 
and pm!
Wall am....


 

and p.m.
 

Other wall a.m.

 

and pm!

 
Jobs next on list here - remove fireplace and take down remaining dado rail and carpet then strip paper ready for re-plastering, then new skirting and edging round the door. Lighting needs sorting too.......but today the sun is shining so it can wait for a couple of days. The back breaking stuff has been done I reckon once the lighting is sorted I could have this room ready for re-plastering in a day.

  2. Good Grief! You're like a whirlwind! Although it's nice to see some one has time for a cuppa along the way ;)
    Your Aga Saga is rivalling the Forsythe Saga ;)

  5. Your rate of work puts ours to shame. Ho hum! The sun is shining today so perhaps we'll work in the garden . . .

  7. How sad that you removed picture rail, they are one of the features of our old house that we love and make full use of. Love too, the deep skirting boards, old panelled doors with locks, so many features that people want to remove these days, but which for me, give the place character. Will you be putting yours back?

  8. When you are done, I have a whole house needs renovating. Summer in Canada perhaps?

    The picture rails and dado rails were not original. Our house is an ex-police house and lacked any character at all. Basic square rooms. The house was built in 1956 so we are improving it's character. Trust me. Dxx

  12. What a hoot you live in an old police house, that is very interesting.

    I like what you have done so far in the "Snug" Removing the picture rail seems to open the space up already.

    You are moving a the speed of Superman... great job so far !

    cheers, parsnip

  13. hey that looks much better for losing the picture rail. We have them here, an original feature, but on their own, with no dado rail.
    Like you, I have fizzled out a bit with painting the dining room, the sunshine has lured me outside!
