There’s a point, and I’ve about to hit it with our bedroom, when nearly all the prep is done, and it suddenly feels like everything’s coming together. Finishes like skim plaster or lining paper definitely help get you there, but in here what’s really done it is putting the trim on.
I’ve kept it all original, using skirting from inside the new wardrobe, and architraves pilfered from another room where the skirting boards are so mix and match that we are planning to replace it all anyway. The door’s taken from the kitchen as well, as we are swapping the hinge side of both those rooms, and luckily their doors are the same width with opposite hinges, so we’ve just swapped them over.
Tomorrow I’ll finish off the last of the filling and the lining inside the wardrobe, seal and prime the walls, then I should be ready to paint!
