we moved up to leeds and to this house almost 9 years ago to the day.
when we arrived the entire house looked like this...
painted in ghastly colours throughout and stencilled to within an inch of it's life.
finally and so not before time the last room to be obliterated of its tired decor was being tackled this week.
for the last 3 1/2 years when we did the lounge at the front i have walked into the house swooning at my orla wallpaper only to be slammed in the face by peaking into the next room. yeugghhh!
but it has happened.
it has all gone!
i am now the proud owner of a stencil-less house!
it all started with matthew and his dad pulling up the b & b style carpet awaiting the floors to be sanded, followed by the arrival of magician john transforming the room entirely with a lick of paint...white paint...lots of it...oh and some grey.
(i'm thinking i need to pinch john's ladder - makes a nice addition don't you think? being yellow n all.)
so last night it was all done bar the one wall of wallpaper.
john made me wait a night. i can't quite believe he did that. and he really should know me better.
but i have been brave and patient awaiting for this morning to arrive and john to turn up and get his pasting brush out...
come on john, my patience is wearing thin now...
