Nearly a week since the last update, and a lot of work (and ££) gone on.
Door is stripped on one side, and half stripped on the other.
Floor is stripped and has been sanded with course grain sandpaper- once the shelving and the painting done we’ll see if it needs another quick sand before we varnish.
All ceilings painted- and the white around the top of the lounge.
Cutting in with the deep red has started in the bedroom- this will be a room of opulance- DaFeline design is for an opium den sans opium- with a tapa cloth motif.
Bathroom and toilet are painted- well missing 1/3rd of the toilet as ran out of paint- and 4 trips later B&Q still don’t have the right base in.
Kitchen is complete- we have white ware in, and a small amount of work- shelving for pots, second coat of the blue detialling- but that is all tiny fiddly stuff for the next couple of days.
Hallway is painted- although will touch up post move, as some grazes on the wall.
Shelving (MDF) has been bought and cut to mostly size- although
1) My walls aren’t true or square
2) There are steel girders running down some walls
So putting them up is a little fiddly- we have three up and a process for putting them together.
Also managed to get cheap as coffee table and tv table from IKEA- was on special for £19 each! So they are stacked in flat pack in the kitchen.
I might also have a free sofa- thanks to Southwark Freegle!
Moving planned for next Saturday/Sunday.
Oh and I have broadband at the new flat. And soon TV reception. These things make life possible.
