Acouple of 'before' shots
I'm not sure why I haven't got any more to show you properly- possibly because I really didn't like the kitchen before- it was cluttered and cramped.
Then with a little bit of this;
I know have a much more pleasant looking kitchen-
The flowers and candles usually sit on the table but Stephanie is busy crafting!
These curtains are brand new in the pack and gifted to me by a family member who changed her mind about using them. They were ever so slightly too big so I turned the hem on one to the correct length and one curtain is enough to go across my back door.
I took all of this out of the kitchen and found it freed up a whole cupboard which has been deployed for use elsewhere in the hous
We have so much stuff we don't need/use I can see a couple of bootfairs needing to be done come the summer.
I was planning on making a blind to go on the window with the 2nd curtain from the pack, but I think I am going to leave the window as it is. I have wanted to move from rented to mortgaged property for a while. The estate I live on isn't all that nice and yesterday afternoon an awful crime was commited right outside our house involving a friend and neighbour. I am now more determined to save and get us out ASAP. So I am leaving the 2nd curtain in the pack for a new home when I get that deposit saved. I have saved enough to buy a new sofa however I have decided to begin my 'get a mortgage' savings using that. The sofa I have will last a few more years yet.
Total cost for the kitchen revamp was;
curtain pole £6.99
tin of gloss £10.00
total cost £27.94
The emulsion for the walls was swapped for an excess tin I bought when I painted the hall a few months back- I lost the reciept at the time so couldn't refund but was offered an exchange.
