Nearly Finished the "studio"

Ok its been slow going recently but have had the nose to the grindstone finishing off the rooms, nearly there, one more coat of paint on the kitchen floor and I will be starting to move stuff in. Was a huge job, much bigger than I anticipated, but all worth it in the end to have a nice light and airy space to work in, and a small area for a couch for relaxing to read mags LOL....

I am going to refresh your memory on the before photos so you can get an idea of how far I have come, (good for me to remember as well YUK LOL)

Eeek look at the state of this room, just disgusting

Look at it now...........

Remember this horror..............

Here it is....................first pic of floor unpainted - I have some scrummy material which I am going to put on the front of that closed in fireplace. This is where the couch will go, coffee table and of course mat to cover the bits in the middle which are a bit lumpy LOL you will never know.

First coat of paint on walls Yipeeeee

Yipeee got the first coat of paint on the walls in the old kitchen area today, was going to get it done yesterday but ended up having to clean the walls off and put an undercoat over a lot of ugly bits. Here are some pics as you can see the paint is still wet, mammoth effort today to get it done. If you look at the first picture, that is where that old coal range used to be hubby has made it like a false fireplace/chimney and he did a good job of it..... will make a feature out of it and cover it with some yummy material.

neat little alcove just ready for a doll to call it home hehe
