You can see from the floorboards where the old wall used to be. The doorway is now much more open, and we have a lovely little alcove in the lounge, which we will wallpaper, and also hang a feature light in. It has power and phone lines there too, so will house a our phone, and one day, when all our bedrooms are being slept in, will be home to the laptop too.
The wall has been plastered now, but my phone won't talk to my computer so I can post a pic! Sorry.
Also, some sad news about the kitchen. Freedom kitchens - complete disaster. Had it all priced through a custom cabinet maker instead, but financially just not possible. We will Ikea it up a bit, improve the storage, make use of our lovely new wall, and save save save for a little while. Its does mean, however, that we can move forwrd with a few other things too!
And happy news...our plantation shutters have arrived, and we are just waiting for an installation date. YAY!
