In progress

Spend another weekend sanding, painting, wall papering and shopping at Ikea, but we're getting somewhere!

By the way, as I told here before, the wallpaper is bought at Swiet.

What we are working on

The attic looked like this when we bought it

I am staying behind on my posts, because I am still so busy painting the new house. Last weeks we have been working on the attic, which will be our bedroom. I never had expected that painting takes so much time. We had some hard lines though. The red bars needed four layers of white paint (and sanding in between all layers of course) to become as white as we wanted. The walls were almost white already, so we expected to need just one layer to make them really white. But then the old paint started to come of. We had to remove all the paint, put a special layer on the bare walls and than paint it three times!
Anyway, it's still not finished, I hope next week I can show you pictures of the finished room.

New house

First of all, a happy new year to you all. I have been away for a while and the reason for this is that half november we got the key of our new house and since then, we have been removing walls, stairs, sanding, painting, packing and moving every free hour, The whole christmas holidays, even on christmas day, we did nothing but working in our new house. But that's okay, because it is starting to look great. In the following days/weeks I will show you how the rooms looked like when we bought it, and what we are doing now. We are still using every free hour beside our full-time jobs, so it may take a while, but I'm sure it will be worth it!

For now, only a picture of the front of the house (it is the white one next to the red one) and on of the backside and the garden. Later on, I will post some pics from the inside.
