11/4/11 Up-Date The kitchen has now been painted and papered, the cooking range is fitted.
3/4/11 Up-date , I've finished the kitchen flooring. I've bought enough skirting board for the kitchen and probably will get most of the dining room done. also bought some picture rail and arcitrave for around the doors and window. This evening I've been staining all the required wood for the kitchen, using TH Distress ink Walnut stain, so much easier than having to stain with wood stain as I needed to do in the Lodge's previous decorating and renervations. Only problem is I now have fingers that look like burnt nicotine stains, going to see the Doc tomorrow so I think I may need to clean fingers with some bleach. LOL
The freize has been painted and added. The wall paper has been added. I will take a pic tomorrow to show the progress.
I'll take a pic tomorrow to show how I am going to make the klitchen floor tiles.
30/03 - The wallpaper has been chosen, not the samples shown here, keeping it for a surprise later. The dado level border has been stripped. Typically the painter and decorator has gone off for a cuppa. The paint pots are cut pieces of dowelling , painted with silver paint, the little labels are from paint advertising bumpf.
