i thought i would post some pics of my dining room make-over progress so i can have a record of how bad the in-between stages are and then (hopefully) when it is finished some pics of how good it can look afterwards. this is so that i don't get totally depressed next time i have to decorate a room (which will be many times as the whole house needs redecorating!)
to be honest even though i am now on the 2nd day of painting and the 4th day of decorating in total i am starting to feel like i am getting somewhere. the first two days were spent stripping the wallpaper which had been painted over a couple of times so, wasn't particularly easy to remove. i am very grateful for the help my sister has given me with this too. i would still probably be stripping still if i didn't get her to help!
anyway, here is what i have left to do -
- some touch ups of paint on the walls
- get the carpet up
- clean and gloss the skirting boards
- paint the fireplace surround and re-attach
- undo and paint chairs
- re-upholster chairs
- paint table
- paint dresser
- fit chandelier
- put up pictures and mirrors etc....
(by the way the table in the pic is being repainted - i would never normally treat a lovely piece of furniture so cruelly!)
