Well as most of you know, myself & Becky Heart  bought our house together & we moved in at the end of November last year.  We didn't realise what we were letting ourselves in for, like most people do, until we had moved in properly. affraid As we said to each other, it looked like bodge it & leg it had lived here, a bit rough around the edges, as there were numerous things that we had to put right. eek


This is the first part of the transformation of the house, to our taste & liking, plus finances with others to follow. We decided to do all 3 bedrooms, the bathroom, the landing & stairs first, & the overgrown back garden as they were in most need of a revamp.  fainting

In the Bathroom we found out that the loo was not fixed to the wall & the bath had not had it's leg supports fixed to the floor, which resulted in a water leak & damp patch on the kitchen ceiling. roll eyes I have tried to take the photo's from the same angle, well almost, I probably need to go to Del's camera class.  wink












We also had to replace the living room tilt & turn door, to a French window, as you could open it but not close it properly as it was broken. sob





A couple of shots of the back garden slowly transforming, from an overgrown mess to a clean cut image.  cheers




Even Charlie the cat & Molly the dog seem to have settled in to the garden with no problem.  Thumsup



The 3 bedrooms & the landing, stairs & hallway to follow.

Well here is Part 2 of our Silk Purse Project, the 3 bedrooms, hall, stairs & landing.

Jamie's bedroom was probably in the worst state, so that needed doing first, as the previous owners had done God knows what to the blinds. scratch Here are the before & after photo's of his room, forgive the chair/mess on the bed.
Embarassed









We then moved on to Katie's room, now don't forget that she is a 20 year old young lady, with not quite a flair yet for putting things/hanging things away. roll eyes









Next on the agenda was our bedroom, again sorry about the mess on & around the bed. eek









And finally the hall, stairs & landing.  cheers  Thank God I hear you cry. Thumsup













I hope that you have enjoyed viewing the transformation of our house & I didn't bore you too much with the photo's.  blowkiss

Thank you both for that. big hug

I love looking at transformations of houses, especially when you see the before & after photo's. Thumsup Like on Homes Under The Hammer, but I get annoyed when they have gone back & it isn't either completed or even started. smilie evil
