The builders left last week and came back on friday to do some jobs they had missed. Over the weekend my husband got the decorating done. If he had left it to me then it would probably still be waiting.
So this is what the loft looks like now
For some reason the colour looks totally different on both pictures. It is actually somewhere inbetween the two. Dabble Blue by B&Q
The staircase is now B&Q Warm Beige. It was, in the words of my husband, a pain in the arse and will never be painted again.
Next on the list is a carpet for the loft which I bought today and is being fitted later in the week. I didn't realise how expensive stair carpets are to fit so that will wait until another month. Then onto decorating the other rooms.
The main staircase had a cream/off white carpet which was a major mistake. After a couple of weeks there were black marks in the corners where the muck was coming up through the floorboards. I will never ever buy another pale coloured carpet. That went to the tip this morning so everything is very echoy until we get a new one.
