As promised, I wanted to share with you the changes in my house since moving in a few years ago, right up till today, Majority of the work took place either immediately when we moved in, or last month when we had a major DIY project.
The attic room was the first we tackled and I just realised that I don’t really have any picture of it finished. However tackling that room was a nightmare – from stripping the walls, to learning how to wallpaper and of course the slanted ceiling making everything that bit more fun!
I actually don’t remember what the room looked like when we first started. I do remember it was wallpapered but a lot of the paper was ripped and messy. We decided to remove the paper and paint the walls. However the paper was an absolute brute to get off and underneath were black walls. Sadly the condition of the wall underneath wasn’t good enough to just paint, so we decided to wallpaper again. Neither of us had wallpapered before and I think if we have the choice, neither of us will choose to do so again. Once the wall was papered, we decided it was just TOO white, so we painted it sky blue.
This picture is the only one I can really find that shows the decorated room and it’s actually from when Chris and I decorated our own room and had to sleep upstairs! Of course as well as sorting out the walls, we also glossed, bought new curtains and a matching duvet colour and Chris also moved his computer up there (it was originally in the dining room).
Recently, during our big DIY spree, we sorted out the stairs from the attic room. Instead of carpeting them we decided to gloss and we also painted the stair walls on the way down, the same blue as the room.
This was our attic done! See the next post, for the next floor down!
