Everyone has been incredibly busy, hard at work on the new house, and we’re already seeing a huge difference in all the rooms. Here are a few progress pictures:
Let’s start with the kitchen… We’ve taken out part of the wall between the kitchen and the hallway, painted the walls green and the woodwork white, laid dark grey wood effect lino, and started putting in the units and appliances:
Next up, let’s take a peek at the Boys’ bedroom… The walls have been stripped and repainted a lovely blue (the same blue that is on one of the walls in the playroom), but the piece de resistance is the gorgeous space wall mural. Of course, there’s still work to be done – the cupboard door will eventually look like the T.A.R.D.I.S, and we plan to transform the bunk beds (not yet assembled) into space capsule pods for the boys to sleep in, and the carpet will be black with silver sparkles, so it’ll look like they’re floating in space:
And the play room is looking good too… We went for the traditional hero palette of red, white and blue – one wall each (the window wall is white – not shown), with an Avengers mural. The toy storage isn’t all assembled yet (I built my first piece of flat-pack all by myself today!), nor is the carpet yet laid, but that’s happening next week:
The master bedroom is starting to look pretty awesome too… We’ve gone for soft shades of grey and put up a feature wall mural of a monochrome New York cityscape. The laminate flooring has now been laid, and our bed has been assembled. We now also have a hanging rail in the wardrobe. Our room is pretty much finished – just some more furniture to go in there:
As you can see, the place is really shaping up and it shouldn’t be too much longer before we move in at long last!
