Hello Again – Plastering & Restoring Floorboards

I’ve not posted on here for a long time! I was ill for most of Jan and Feb, so didn’t do a lot of work. But I’ve been busy the last few weeks.

I’ve rendered and skimmed a couple of dodgy areas in the front room.

And I’ve just finished sanding and varnishing the front room floor.

I’m very pleased with it and now have a proper drum room so I can buy my new kit 🙂
