We are heading into the last week of our building contract and even though the builders will not meet the deadline and be finished, we are certainly getting there.
And so over the next little while please join me on the journey of the slow reveal - before and after shots and finally photos of rooms as I finish them off with interior decoration - ideas which I am getting from the many wonderful blogs out there.
We have spent the last few months, when sitting in the lounge room staring at these doors, not being able to open them due to builders working on the other side.
And as much as I love the doors I have started to feel a little claustrophobic having lived in the house for seven years with them open or half open most of the time.
Well just recently we have been able to open them again and start to decorate the area on the other side.................
This used to be our family space but now we can use it for it's original purpose, a dining room, as we now have the new family area beyond the kitchen (at the left of this picture).
Also loving this new servery, it really opens up the space. This used be a solid wall.
So we still need to paint and I have so many more ideas for decorating the space (including revamping the dining setting) but I have to be patient as other things need to be finished off first. I also can't wait for the alfresco deck to be built on the other side of the stacking doors. Good thing it is Winter so don't really want to sit outside as yet but in a couple of months I hope to.
