Feb half-term renovations

Busy half-term renovations

The painting is coming along now, with the kitchen, lounge and dining room having their final coats. We all love Before and After pics, right? Here are some of the fireplace, kitchen and outside. 

Chimney breast before and after …

I’m in love with the chimney breast colour of Farrow & Ball Oval Room Blue. It has a lovely coastal feel whilst being light enough to not darken the room. A lovely contrast to the walls, which are finished in Farrow & Ball Slipper Satin. What do you think?

Kitchen before and after …

A complete transformation to bring the kitchen right up-to-date. I hope you love it as much as we do! We’ve kept the plastic on the doors whilst we’re still renovating the house, so the doors look glossy but they’re actually a pale grey matt. The worktops are solid surface with elements of mother of pearl, glass and copper fleck (a nod to the industrial past of the copper rush of Parys Mountain). The Bosch appliances are gorgeous and we’ve even managed to squeeze in a dishwasher! Not forgetting a wine rack for your reds and the integrated fridge freezer has a bottle rack for your whites. We’ve thought of everything! 

Outside before and after …

The outside got a lick of paint on the bottom of the house too. It was sunny but cold and blustery, so I was glad to finish this task. The brickwork below the window will be covered in dove grey weatherboard and the windows and soffets will be painted in anthracite this week, but as I had a mahoosive brush, the brickwork got a splosh of paint too! 

Sadly I’m not at Gwendon this week but Neil is, and I’ve asked for plenty of pics, so I’ll blog on the progress next week. Super excited to see the changes. I can’t wait to start adding furniture and accessories!
