We're moving on up!

First floor landing is complete!... well, I do have to fix one minor boo boo. Although I had thought that I had fixed my socket into my wall very securely, I neglected to glue it to something behind the foam core and when I went to plug a lamp into the hallway I pushed the socket right through the wall. Anyhow,  I had to cut through the wall, dig out the socket and stuff some wood behind it.  The wall is now patched and drying.  I don't think I will be trying to pull the lamp plug out of the socket any time soon.  There goes my plans of having a lit up Jack- o- lantern at Halloween.

 Picture this with the requisite French shabby Chic furnishings and not the bits and pieces I am having to make do with for now.







I was a bit disappointed at my front hall floor, it was an awful lot of hand cutting and I ended up installing it slightly crooked, but I have moved on.
 My plan now is to have a good old tidy up and organize everything and then start the second floor.

    1. Thanks Simon, you can tell a little, but that is okay. I still like the overall effect. I am wiling to do almost anything twice, but I couldn't face doing that floor again!

  5. The hall is lovely! I can't see anything wrong with the floor, but you know, sometimes tradesmen don't get it perfectly right either LOL. It all adds to the realism of the scene.
    All the best

  7. Thanks Theresa, I wanted to do my house like yours and have it assembled before decoration but I was afraid I wouldn't be able to thread the electrics through. As it is I think I am going to have a little trouble. We will see. Love your blog and can't wait to get home to review it all.
