Hello everyone how are you all? My goodness it has been soooooooo windy here today, I had to pop over to my step-mums to see to her little yorkies at dinner time & I struggled to open my van door the wind was that strong lol. Think I needs some bigger muskles lol.
I have some piccies for you of my hobbit (craft room) so far, there have been quite a few delays but there is light at the end of the tunnel lol.
Ok so this first one I took last Thursday night 11th April. All the dry walling had been installed & the first coat of paint on the ceiling. We replaced all the walls, the ceiling & the floor, here is just the base of the floor with no covering on yet.

This next one is Friday 12th April late afternoon & hubby had painted the ceiling & fitted all the lights into place. I used to have 2 long strip lights but they were too bright & felt harsh so hubster fitted spot lights into the ceiling.
No work got done saturday or sunday as weekends are family time & we all spend it together chilling, chatting etc. Jake's girlfriend also came over on sunday & we all went Ben & Megans for tea........a fab day!!
This one I took today 16th April. Yesterday hubster laid new laminate flooring, its a bit lighter than my old laminate flooring so will reflect a bit more light. We also brough an old kitchen off someone on ebay & although its covered in plaster in parts & so filthy............its disgusting!! However hubster fitted the top ones today & laid the floor ones down ready for me to clean & paint tomorrow before the work tops go on.
This one I took tongiht so you could see the lights at night, I absolutely love them & they let off quite a bit of warmth. The bookcases at the back I already had & originally got them from Ikea, they are just Billy Bookcases.
This below is my absolute bargain, I LOVE it!! My eldest son Ben saw this on facebook, up here we have Ashington For Sale, a friend of ours set it up for people wanting to sell things they no longer need etc. Anway Ben was at mine last week & he saw this & showed it to me. I loved it & when he told me the price I loved it even more. So showed it to hubster & he told me to get it....woooo hoooooo. However as he was going out in the van it would have to wait til the following day...........not a big deal, right. Well the lovely people were going near our way so offered to deliver it..........OMG..........arn't they fab!!
Its a 'Ducal' solid pine dresser & it cost me £30, but I also gave them some extra to cover their fuel for being so kind...........can you believe it £30!!!!!! I have the best son ;0) He knows a bargain when he sees one.
Today I finally decided what colour I wanted it as I dont want to keep it this colour. So I have brought some Annie Sloan chalk paint & wax today, should be here tomorrow or Thursday when it will get the Vicky treatment lol.
If you look you can also see my wallpaper I'm having in here on top of the dresser ;0)
Ok so my next photo's should hopefully be all done & looking fabulous, I'm getting really excited now lol. My desk & drawers etc have to go in & they will be going on the other side, hubster has fitted an extra double socket so my sewing machine can go there as well. 3 double sockets should hopefully now be enough..........I hope so anyway lol, you dont realise to begin with just how many electrical things we use when crafting.
Well my next pics of my hobbit will look totally different, I may do a video to show it properly as well as someone has suggested it to me...........we will see lol.
Take care & thank you for stopping by to see how we are getting on........
Big hugs to all xxxxxxxxxxxx
