Before and After

furniture-free lounge

much more homely



cream walls and bare banisters

sunshine yellow walls with new curtains and varnished banisters


disintergrating carpet and stained wallpaper

fitted wardrobes making the most of the chimney breast


plastic cistern and dusty drapes   lighted ceiling, new floor covering, lots of antique pine effect

now with white tiles and a new suite



mmm - lovely 80's wallpaper

experimental paintwork using scrunched up plastic bags



the chimney is falling apart    scaffolding is required    the repaired chimney


Roger gets all arty with the wallpaper off-cuts

my stereo unit - designed and made from scratch



Wallpapering and chimney repair by Constructive Solutions. New porch by David and Mike Duffell. Bedroom curtains by Heather.

I can recommend Wickes for cheap DIY materials but B&Q are better for brand name items. Southern Sheds provided excellent service.
