At last all of the DIYing is finished in our bedroom and i can get started making it beautiful with pictures, fabric and furniture.
The only major thing that we haven’t done yet is replace the radiator for a chunkier and shorter one giving us more wall space for me to clutter up with furniture. We are planning to do this but not until we tackle the bathroom (next project) so we don’t have to drain the system down twice.
We’ve already chosen the curtain poles, we’re having those made by an iron monger in Worcestershire http://www.genuineforgery.com/ that we found on eBay and i chose the curtain material in December. To be honest, the fabric was a major impulse purchase but i loved it and it was discounted so i couldn’t resist. I always buy fabric for curtains in end of line shops and there are 2 excellent ones near my mums house so i’ve never paid more than £7 or £8 per metre (and often less). I wasn’t brave enough to take on making the curtains myself so they’re being made by a local lady who does them for £10 per drop and i’m collecting them this week!
