Before our before

16 Apr

Original livingroom, originally uploaded by goodfellowgirl.

Thought I would finally get round to sharing the very first picture I took of the new place. This was on the day we first viewed the flat – and this was the best room in terms of having all its windows (!), no nicotine staining and (though you can’t see it from the angle I’ve taken the pic at) a view of the castle.

You might also get a feel for the previous resident’s taste in decorating. A lighter shade of green on the main walls, darker green above the picture rail and a dark green ceiling… a theme that was continued in different colours throughout the place. At one point I hit a moment of madness and actually became quite attached to the green!

Anyway, I’m looking forward to posting some of our ‘before’ and (sort of) ‘after’ pics next week pics. (I say ‘sort of’ as there’s no way we’ll actually be done but at least the walls and ceiling will be a different colour!)

    Thanks Nath. Hopefully it will be when we’re done… which will hopefully be soon. (That was too many ‘hopefuls’!)

    Hope is good! I have hope for this house, just a bit short on time and money. Ho hum.

Leave a little love...
