We bought the house we live in around 7 years ago. It is a large house - Almost too large for us now, and it is completely timber lined. Ceilings, Walls, Doors - Everything......
I have always loved the warmth of the timber but disliked the darkness it gives the home. I have tried to convince hubby for a long time that painting it all white was a good idea.
Finally he agreed that it might look nice. So we employed a professional painter and have carved the house into stages so it is easier on the budget and so that it doesn't interrupt our lives too much.
Stage 1 was our hall way and back entrance porch. The painting begin earlier this week and was finished on Friday.
We love it !! I am totally in love with it's brightness and freshness. Hubby Loves it too which is even better and I got to do the I told you so thing
Stage 2 begins on Friday with 3 of the bedrooms and the loo being painted.
New carpet goes down in 3 weeks time too. I am super excited to see it all finished.
I will keep you updated with progress shots. I can't wait to start decorating the rooms with all of my shabby bits and pieces I have been stashing away for when the time came to finally get this house looking how I wanted.
And it will also mean some treasure hunting too - One of my favourite pastimes
What do you think?
