Home Bird Update

The excitement of home ownership back in October hasn't dulled, but it has been a long and drawn out process. 

I am still living with my parents, although we are getting there slowly. I say we, because I couldn't have got to this stage without the help of Mam and Dad. 

My Mam even cancelled her birthday trip away this week to help get my bedroom painted. 

It's looking like my moving in date will be drawing near, so I thought I would give you a bit of an update on how things stand at the moment.

My front sitting room, which looked like this the last time you saw it:

Now has had a lick of paint on the stained, embossed paper, and gloss paint on the wood paneling. 

This room has been shut off for a while no, as it's been ready since before Christmas. Sometimes I stick my head in, just to remind me that at least one room is ready!

The main work has happened in the kitchen, as the old one was beyond cleaning and 'making do'.

Ever since the kitchen has been finished, I've been adding trinkets to my cupboards:

And finishing touches to my walls - even though they've not been painted yet!!

I am also rather looking forward to stepping into my house onto THIS FLOOR!

So, we're just waiting for my flooring to arrive for my kitchen and my bedroom. 

I know there is so much more to do, but it will be worth it when I'm in my 3 rooms (my bathroom just needs a darn good clean), and I can work on my hallway, back sitting room and landing. 

Eeeee, it's getting nearer and nearer - nearly all grown up with my own house to rattle around!

Much love my lovelies,

  1. Moving into a new home is the BEST feeling. I've lived in my little (first non-student) house with my boy for 7 months now, and the feeling is still there.

    Keep your patience and your home will be beautiful!

  2. Love that 'There's No Place Like Home' plaque! SO cute

  3. i have a thing about house reno pictures - so would it be presumptuous to ask for more in the future? the countertop in your kitchen looks fab - is it toughened glass?? cant relly tell in the pic.
