The transformation begins

We’ve been long in the process of actually getting around to transforming rooms in the house and its finally starting to take off and actually beginning to transform.

Finally the entrance hall is nearly there… All i need now is a good Coat rack for the wall and I think we may e done albeit a little bit of electrical work! I once hated this mirror – the other half got it in a bulk dealwith endless furniture, a shed a lawnmower and more when he moved in 10 years ago, for a barg price of £150 all in… I’ve forever hated it – maybe it just needed dressing… now turn it 90 degrees and it’s growing on me… how?! 🙈 I shouldn’t complain as this means one less thing to replace for now – and the money can go on another detail for somewhere else in the house!
