my living room is finished!! :excited:

it's been out of use since June :thumbsdown:

After my frustration at the new radiator not being installed on time and thinking our new carpet would have to be put off until the radiator was in it finally worked out - the plumber, bless him (but not his boss who messed it all up) came out to us at 7.30am yesterday. good man :thumbsup:

the carpet fitters arrived 20 minutes early *shock* while the radiator was still being done so i made them all a cuppa and they waited - the plumber rushed around like mad for us and that and the carper was all done and dusted by 9.30am.....excellent! :eek3:

we got the new furniture in in less than an hour OMG i'm so excited i never thought i'd see the day when i had a living room as lovely as it is! :happydance:

the carper is thick and bouncy, the curtains look gorgeous (Mum took them up for me as they were too long)

It's FABULOUS! just thought i'd share that with you! i was gobsmacked yesterday when it was all done - i couldn't believe it!


:bounce:



i now have a no shoes, no drinks and no food rule in there :whistle:

yah yah yah yah yah - i have a new living room! :wiggle:

you know when you have something pictured in your mind and it turns out pretty much as you wanted, it's a fantastic feeling, it really is. we wanted brown leather sofas but just can't afford them yet - i think the blue ones look just fine though :smile:

here are some (well quite a few :wink:) pics - they're a bit fuzzy though :sorry:

i love it Josh, i took off all the plaster hoping for the whole thing to be brick but it had horrid grey bricks so it had to be replastered! it was flippin' hard work 'cos it had been blocked up with old bricks and rock hard cement :thumbsdown:
