2016 is going to be all about the finishing touches (and the kitchen) and so we’ve pulled together a pretty long snagging list.

There are areas we need to repaint, doors we need to re-hang and cushions we need to buy.

One of the rooms we’d hoped to finish last year was the dressing room but the stone we had ordered for the vanity unit only arrived the other day.  There has just been an odd space by the window since The Husband finished the room last summer.  This is what it looked like before hand:


We need to put the architrave back in at the bottom but it’s exciting to be able to tick something off the list already.     IMG_6177



About katerenovates

Hello and welcome to Kate Renovates - a blog about my attempts at renovation. The Husband and I have now been living in our house for four years and changes are being made slowly. It's an unloved Victorian townhouse that had been converted into two flats. Armed with a little bit of know-how and bags of enthusiasm, we have turned it back into one house and are transforming it into our home. Many of the original features remain but the flats had been rented out and so none of the rooms were in great shape. Luckily, it has a fully functioning kitchen and we recently finished the new bathroom and so things are getting more and more comfortable all the time. We're learning as we go and sharing our ups (and downs) on here as we try (fingers crossed) to bring the house back to life. I'd love to hear your thoughts on my blog or any tips you may have on our house project, so to contact me, please email
