Decorating - before and after!

We moved into our flat in June last year and here's the progress so far.. I took the before photos the very first day!


SITTING ROOM - BEFORE

BEDROOM - BEFORE

HALLWAY - BEFORE

KITCHEN - BEFORE

There are still plenty of unfinished projects, the main one being the kitchen tiles on the wall, and the bathroom. I still have so many odd jobs but am really pleased with the progress so far. I love looking at the before pictures, it just goes to show with a little imagination and hard work you can make a cozy home.

YASMINE said...

It looks great, wallpaper in everyroom was ok 20 years ago, glad u cleared it all up. The wooden floor is defenelty a must, and don't get me started on that georgous white coutch (although it'll be hard when kids arrive). The cost of labour & material in the UK is crazy, but with bright costs savings ideas a little can go a long way... I was hoping to see peanut! I miss his pictures.
