New year, new room

This weekend we tackled my bedroom! It was one of many jobs that need doing in my house and I just got fed up with staring at the faded wallpaper and grubby ceiling. On Saturday we removed all the items from the room and prepared the walls (only to discover the inevitable blown plaster, peeling paper etc). That night we slept downstairs on the sofa bed, much to the surprise and pleasure of the cats who insisted on joining us but couldn't really work out why we were asleep for so long. Sunday we painted and by the evening were able to move the furniture back. We still need new blinds, new radiator, new carpet and various other finishing off things but it does at least feel like it is on the way. Below is a picture of the half finished wall and Ian as he was at the end of the weekend after emulsioning and cutting in!

It looks great. You look entirely relaxed and as though you havent done a thing, unlike Ian. I say no more...
