We’re in a lull from the decorating chaos. The plaster has nearly dried, the painting is mostly done. The flooring arrives in about 10 days, the sofas in a month. I’m hoping the worst is over. We can’t reassemble the room properly until there’s something other than tatty underlay on the floor, so there are no shelves. Some pictures are up, but are not necessarily going to stay where they’ve been put. There are no curtains- I don’t want the old ones to go back, but it cost so much to get them dry cleaned we can’t justify new ones yet. (If only I’d thought to shrink them by accident in the washing machine.) I’m still looking out for cushions, throws (Spurs Fan rolls his eyes in horror at this- we have loads of blankets/ rugs/ throw things, but of course, now, they’re not the right colours) and other soft furnishings, since we apparently need ‘texture’.
In the meantime, a brief update. See if you can spot what our next decorating task is going to be.
