Cupboard, ceiling and curtains.

The porch is now fully painted - I am thrilled with the transformation of the cupboard from what it was.

The damaged ceiling before...


and now.

Coat hooks fitted

and now.

I really like the colour of the walls.

Argos sale - lights were £19.99 each.

Now it's just a case of carpet and curtains./blinds.

Curtains for the 5 foot window looking out onto the garden.

Roman blinds for the entrance door & windows.

When I was sorting through stuff I came across this Jane Churchill fabric.
I bought it on ebay for next to nothing a couple of years ago.
I had bought it for the landing curtains.

But then I came across these ready-made ones for £3.50 in the charity shop.
I bought 2 pairs - the other pair are for the final room to be re-vamped, the 3rd bedroom
which Jon uses as an office.
We have booked the final week of March with the decorator- so I have until then to clear the room and strip the old wallpaper.

Watch this space!


  1. I've definitely got porch envy. It looks lovely. Definitely worth the effort.

  2. It's looking great, not much more to do now.

    1. Bedroom 3 - oh and the loft! Now there lies a challenge.

  3. Those curtains were a real bargain!
    The porch looks lovely!

  4. Looks lovely Denise. We ordered a decorator to come and redo our bedroom and our very large kitchen. We are still waiting four months later. You have called in on us, so you know how much 'stuff' we have to move, so I can't say I am looking forward to it. Hope he waits a bit longer before telling us he is coming.

  5. What you going to do with yourselves when you've finished the decorating lol! Maybe it's like the Forth Bridge.....

  6. I think you've hit the nail on the head - Forth Bridge lol!

  9. Fantastic transformation. I like the wall color too.
    Isn't it fun when it all comes together and doesn't cost your entire fortune?

  10. How creative you and love the decor and style of your home ~ great post for C

    Wishing you the best in each day. ~ ^_^

  11. Very nice work results at your place! I like all the changes!

  12. Well done on every bit of your porch.
    My favorite part is the entry door/windows with their ledges and that view of the blue door beyond!

  13. I love what you have done, seems like improving never ends. I LOVE the wall color, thats what I want in my living area.

  14. Those curtains have my heart now! Subtle yet elegant.
