We have finally moved in! This time last week we spent the evening sorting out, cleaning and moving into the dressing room. It definitely wasn’t the quick job I was told back in April it was going to be but it looks good and I’m very impressed with what The Husband has done.
As mentioned here, it has taken a lot of blood, sweat and tears to finish it but the end result is far better than I was expecting. It’s not 100% complete as the dressing table and mirror are still to be installed, we need a hook for the back of the door, the blind has not yet arrived and I want some better storage for my make-up and bits but the clothes are in!
So, in the last few weeks The Husband has:
- Installed the floor, which is the same as the one used at the other end of the landing in our bathroom
- Built and installed the drawers although I still take the credit for this idea (even if they were a nightmare)
- Chosen and installed the window film – we got it from John Lewis in the end and it was far easier to do than we thought it would be
- Fitted the mirror behind the door – it is on a hinge though so it means you can stand in any point of the room and see your outfit
So this is where we got to….
and then the clothes went in…
And what’s even more exciting is that now we have got rid of all the clothes and clutter we can see the potential of our bedroom again. We’d almost forgotten about the fire place as we’d not seen it for so long and we can finally reach the blinds to open them! One day we’ll even be ready to open all our wedding presents which are still stacked in piles around the house and maybe even get a bed to go with our mattress…
