Project Dressing Room – Phase Three

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll probably know that we’ve been renovating our spare room to turn it into a dressing room. We’ve been doing this in a few phases (read about phase one and phase two) and I’m delighted that we’ve finally finished it and have moved in all of our clothes!! I absolutely love it and it’s turned out exactly as I’d pictured it. So without further ado, I’ll share it with you… As the room is quite small, it’s actually quite difficult to photo! I’ve tried to take the shots from lots of different…

Project Dressing Room – Phase Two (carpet)

A couple of weeks ago we began to redecorate our spare room so that we could use it as a dressing room. As you can imagine I’m VERY excited about the prospect of having a dressing room, even it is very small! With having three young children,we don’t have much spare time, so we’re doing the dressing room in phases over a few weekends. Phase One was actually painting the room, which has made such a difference already- read about it and see some before shots here. Last week we had the new carpet fitted and it really makes such a…

Project Dressing Room – Phase One (painting)

We’ve finally started work on our new dressing room! Anyone who is a regular reader will know that we spent the majority of last year having a large (and stressful) extension to our house. This extension has meant that we now have five bedroom, one more than we actually need. The spare room is pretty small and rather than it becoming a dumping ground, we have decided to turn it into a dressing room, which I’m super excited about. So excited that I’ve been planning what I’ll do with the room for the past few months (check out my Dressing…

The extension

We bought our current house when Oscar had just turned 1. We knew we wanted more children and the two-bedroom house we were in was not really a family home. We were planning to have one more child, so we bought a reasonably sized 3 bed, not that far away from our first home. It was close to my parents, we had made lots of friends in the area, the schools were good and perhaps most importantly, the local pub was good! The house was pretty dated inside, so we did a bit of redecorating to make it more our style. We…

Dressing room dreams

As you’ll know from previous posts, last year we had a huge extension, which was a nightmare. Therefore we are currently taking a break from all things house! The majority of our house has been refurbished, there are just a couple of rooms that we didn’t change. One of these rooms is Oscar’s old bedroom. The plan is that it will be mine and Simon’s (mainly mine!) dressing room. Now I know we’re having a break from decorating, but I’m so excited about having mine own dressing room that I can’t help but plan it in my head. I’m thinking…
