Last year we had builders in to do various jobs and for longer than I was entirely happy about our dining room looked like this:
At new year, with the builders finally gone and the room freshly plastered, we were ready to start redecorating. We picked out colours,
braved putting up wallpaper,
(Tim worked speedy fast for me)
and started constructing my library.
In fact, a few months back we were mostly done and I blogged about my almost-finished library here. However, there were a few bits and pieces still to do. Between my sister’s wedding, my lupus flares and us generally wanting to have a life outside of DIY, it’s taken us a while, but today I can finally declare the library finished! And isn’t it beautiful?
