This is what it was like before I started, with dark red paint
and dark pine furniture,
That's all been replaced now.
The dark red paint has been replaced with a pale taupe,
and the dark pine furniture has had a coat of white eggshell paint to brighten it up,
and the carpet in the dining room has been replaced by a beautiful oak wooden floor the same as in my lounge.
On the stairs and landing the red paint has gone too and the floor has been painted white, the same as I did in the bathroom.
I bought myself a new lampshade,
and a 'new' chair for under the stairs (the chair was actually from eBay so is only new to me).
This is the only bit that isn't finished yet as I've ordered snazzy new covers for it in this fabric and they won't be ready until the end of September.
The only 'slight' snag is that a certain cat has decided that she really likes the chair and is probably not going to be impressed with me replacing the covers. But I will be able to see her better as she's quite well camouflaged at the moment and I've nearly sat on her on several occasions!
