My sitting room = A work in progress!

I've been without a sitting room now for a week,  not easy when you have a 1 and a half year old to entertain let me tell you!  When I was pregnant on Ryan I had no kitchen for 6 weeks and when I was pregnant on Aaron I had not bathroom for about a month so I was used to it but you can't explain to Ryan that he can't go into the sitting room, can you!
The plastering is finished and is drying out and the floor has been sanded and the first coat of varnish has been put on (2 more to go) and the room just looks so much better already!! When we got our new windows about 5 years ago the lads never finished off the inside because we were going to plaster it anyway but we never thought it would take that long to get around to doing it so we've been living with peeling wallpaper and yellow foam going around the edge of  the windows!  I really can't wait until the whole thing is finished and I have my new sofa to relax on!  Hopefully we'll be able to paint by Monday and maybe be in by this time next week!  Fingers crossed!!


Front wall done

Looking better already!

Look at my lovely floor!!

So as you can see we're getting there!!  A few more days and it will all be back to normal! 
Its the Seabreeze festival this weekend which means we have the wound up wonders Jedward in attendance which is guaranteed to be noisy!! Aaron can't wait to go down and see them so I'm going to bring him down on Sunday night.  The Teddy Bears picnic is on tomorrow so I'm hoping the weather will stay dry for it!
Right, I better go hoover the rest of the dust up so we can get ready for the next step!
Have a great weekend whatever you're up to!


  1. Looks great! Can't wait to see it finished :-)

  2. I like the flooring a lot. really light and airy :)

  3. It will be a bit darker when the other 2 coats are done and the 3rd coat is being done tomorrow sometime so I'm hoping the plaster will be dry enough for painting on Sunday! My da is coming to hang the door the other way round tomorrow so it will open to the wall instead of into the room!
    Have put a bottle of wine into the fridge to crack open when its finished!!

  4. Mmmm wine.. Sounds good.. You won't know urself when it's finished!

  5. Enjoy your blog. It's refreshing. Good luck with the renovations.
