We are now in week six of a major redecoration with the end, at last, in sight.
SWMBO decided that the downstairs floors needed sanding. That means the living room, dining room, breakfast room and hallway - in other words the entire downstairs apart from the kitchen and shower room.
Boxes on the bed
So we had to clear the decks - everything had to be moved upstairs or to the garage - while they sanded. Dust everywhere!
Front hall - work in progress
Dining room - work in progress
Then Mary had her contract extended so we could afford to have the hall painted as well. However that is about a third of the house as it takes in the kitchen and breakfast room, stairs and upstairs landing. More sanding, more dust.
Hallway from the breakfast room
Thankfully the lads are nearly done and we have started to reassemble our life. The breakfast room is done; the living room is mostly reconstituted but we are waiting till the post-decoration spring-clean before unboxing the CD's. The dining room will be last when they clear out their equipment.
Then we will have to host some dinner parties to show off our wonder walls and shiny floors.
