The plasterer has left the building!



The plasterer has done a great job. I think the coving will look great when all is painted. Hopefully it will take 3-4 days for the room to dry out. As the weather is good this should help the drying process.
We have to change the door round and replace the handle with a knob. Architrave and skirting need to be completed, then the decorating can begin! The switch panels too will be changed - brushed steel to match the doorknobs and my picture frame!
We have moved into the lounge so we can shut the door on the snug and leave it now. The weather forecast is good so we will have a couple of biking days! It will be a good opportunity for me to think about colour schemes. Definately white ceilings, coving, doors, architrave and skirting. Walls – hmmmm a creamy pale yellow and a sagey green? Will have a think!
Enjoy the weekend!


  1. Gorgeous weather - take care on that bike though, there will be so many bikes around.

  2. What a wonderful job the plasters did.
    I can't wait to see more.

    I would go with the sagey green you could add pops of the creamy yellow but... then again I live in a very sunny city so I am always looking for a cooler soft color to surround myself in. Both sound lovely !

    Can't wait to see what you chose.

  3. Looks like you've had a messy time with builders around - me too! It's nice to have the house to myself again.
    Thanks for calling round to my blog. No, we are a good way further north - on the way to Otterburn. Whitby is lovely - haven't been for years but you've reminded me!

  4. That sounds like a lovely colour scheme - will match your fabric. :D

  5. The walls look so smooth I want to stroke them!!
    Love to Tiger! (he he he)

  6. Ooh how exciting a blank canvas! Enjoy the weather and come back to your snug with lots of fresh ideas.

  7. may I say that home improvement is great when it's someone else's chaos!

  8. Sage green is a favorite color of mine.Choosing colors is the exciting part. I'm so jealous of your beautiful Yorkshire spring!

  9. You're nearly at the fun part, choosing colours.

  10. Sage green sound good. The plasterers looks to have done a great job. I always think it's a boring and difficult job but they've done you proud.

  11. This is the best part, being "In the pink"! Now the fun part, chosing the colours.

  12. Progress! It will soon be all finished and you can sit back, relax, and admire your beautiful home.

  13. How exciting! It's good to see that the wallpaper stripping has paid off.. and now just waiting for the plaster to dry!

    I thought of you, Ernest, Mabel and the gang when we went to a farm to pick up ducks. There was every type of feathered flock imaginable it seems!

  14. The plaster painted with different architrave and it such a skirting panels. The brushed round drying process are really entire with different accommodation.
