done!!!well nearly

Well I finally got to the good stuff.
I only got one coat of floor paint on but I couldn't let Mum wait any longer(you have been so patient :)

So here goes from this...

To this....


This hardly looks like the old room and it will only get better.The darkest shades on the floor are the dry colour and another coat will even out the blotchy effect in places.
I'll get the second coat on tomorrow.
Sorry if the photos are a bit shadowy but the sun moved around the corner before I finished and I'm too tired to photo shop.
I even got the surplus wardrobe that will go in here re-shellacked and did about 8 loads of laundry.
I plan to limp pathetically on Monday....

Well the madness is stabilising.....

We are here at last,7/8 ths unpacked and over the third world disease Gary and I caught from the lovely ex tenants housekeeping skills(note sarcasm here)
I've even started painting the first room after ripping up the carpet and peeling off the wallpaper.I'll keep you posted as we go from this... something a little less smelly   mouldy   gross   unusual.
