New Drill Bits & Bedroom Mirror

I bought my bedroom mirror last night and put it up tonight

I had to buy some bigger wall plugs and a bigger drill bit. Since it was only slightly more to buy a whole set, I treated myself and now I have a lovely shiney set of drill bits to get dirty! 🙂

The mirror was on sale at under £30 at The Range.

I’m undecided whether to leave it cream or paint it white or purple to match the rest of the room. The light (yet to be fitted) is cream so I’ll leave it until that’s up to decide.

Study…. is now a study.

So, I finally got around to sorting all the junk that was stored in this room whilst I was renovating my bathroom and bedroom.

Bringing the desk upstairs on my own was a very near huge failure. I got stuck mid way, literally pinned to the stairs under the desk… it isn’t too heavy but it was such a tight fit.

I also massively scraped the banister and wall and the drawer fell out from mid way up the incredibly steep stairs, bouncing three times…. very loudly. I’m sure I gave the neighbours an almighty shock. I need to fix up the walls and banister, but the drawer was more or less unscathed.

I was going to sand the desk and paint parts of it, but it’ll do as it is for now.
It still looks pretty good. Besides, I can buy my A3 laser printer now and get trading.

Stairs & Landing Brightened Up

Long time, no update. Kinda been busy soaking up the sun, running, climbing and fitting in a few sporadic hours on the house.

My bedroom is more or less done.
It’s been plastered, painted and I put up the new architrave. Just got a few bits and pieces left to do. Photos will follow when I’ve got it in order (tidied).

The stairs and landing are now finished.
The emulsion was finished weeks ago and I’ve just finished the woodwork. Painting the ugly brown with white makes such a difference.
