T is for Tempting you with a Taste of what is to come!

A few weeks ago our lounge looked like this......


It hadn't worked for a while......so Jon hatched a plan....


and he built this....


Yesterday the plasterer worked his magic and the coving was added to make it appear it had always been there!


today the room continues to dry out....


Next week it will be U for unveil - until then I have to crack on and sort out the room, ready for the decorator and the carpet fitter. Can you guess the colour of the carpet? Remember - these are the curtains..

  1. You're off to a great start Denise, you must be looking forward to getting rid of the artex ceiling.
    I think it will all look great when its finished.

  2. Can't wait to see the finished transformation! Is your carpet blue or beige?

  3. I'm guessing something neutral, like beige.

  4. How about a bluey greyish creamy brown - that should just about cover all eventualities Denise.

  5. Ok ?
    What didn't work the room layout or the wall ? Did you add the bump out ? what ever you did it looks great. Can't wait to see more.

    Since you talked about how special the carpet was and you bought it that second at the sore, I am thinking a sage green ?

    Excitement ! just like waiting for Christmas morning unwrapping a present !

    cheers, parsnip

  6. Will it be ready for Christmas??

  7. It will be ready for Christmas lol!

  8. I'm thinking rose/beige or blue/grey for the carpet.
    You must be getting near to the end soon.The renovations can't go on for ever...... surely!
    Love the fire.

    Nuts in May

  9. I'm so excited for the unveiling!

  10. Is your carpet a mossy green?
    You are going to have the most wonderful, cozy home when its all finished.
    Can't wait for "U".

  11. Oh, love the fireplace! I think the carpet will be blue.

  12. Lucky you to have someone handy around the house. Not sure if the dog sitting by the fireplace is real or a statue. But if it’s real, it will certainly be comfy once the carpet is in. I’m thinking it will be sea green. :)

  13. Can't wait to see the room all done up!

  14. What a creative way to fix a room and link two blog posts! I can't wait to see the unveiling!

  15. The curtains give you a lot of good options for your carpet. Throwing the dice, I'd say the green... :-)

  16. hello D!

    Hello, dashing in to let you know I am changing my blog to invite only from this weekend. If you still want to be able to read, please see my blog for details before then!

    sorry for the rush!!

  17. I really feel like watching "Homes under the Hammer" lol !

  18. Denise, it is easy to tell how terribly hard you two work. What will you do when all is finished?!

  19. can't wait to move in with you.lol

  20. Hope the plaster's gone off now (technical term for drying out;-))

    I wonder if your carpet will pick up the blue or the green in your curtains - or any of the three or four other colours - or it might be a complete contrast. Can't wait to see it:-)


Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
