Dining/Living Room Transformation

This is the first room we have tackled and it will be our dining room once the living room is done but for now it is a cosy living room.

It started off like this

 green artex (textured plaster stuff) on the walls, awful fake beams on the ceiling, horrendous carpet and mould on the walls, nice!

Husband took it back to the brick and took the ceiling down

then we got some fantastic restoration builders in to clad and insulate the walls.

They were then plastered and after a week of drying I painted.

Oak floor was laid

and we now have a fab room. We still need new doors, skirting and door architrave but it is so much better than it was and we have really enjoyed sitting in front of the fire this Christmas!


  1. Looks fab now, what a lovely fireplace too! I bet it is such a cosy place to be in xx

  2. good for you guys, what a huge difference. and i have to give you props for that accent wall and color combo-we've done our living room with the same idea.

  3. So pretty!! Hoping you can link this up at my turquoise lovin' party!!
