Here are before piccies....
This shows where there was a recess back under the stairs. We couldn't put much under there as there was a door to the small understairs cupboard. So we just had a chest of drawers with spare towels in.
This shows the old door to the original cupboard. There is a gas meter in here but other than that we couldn't fit very much! No ironing board or hoover, just a few bags!
You can also see the delightful "peach" walls and horrid brown carpet which is the only floor covering we haven't managed to replace yet.
Today, I primed all the new woodwork and have started working my way round painting over the peach wallpaper. I actually like the embossed wallpaper, but just want to make it white!
This is the recessed area, now with doors on
The door has been removed from the old cupboard, but I am going to hang a curtain here, to make it look tidier and hide the gas meter.
I bought two sets of these coat hooks to put on one wall, at adult and child height, to keep our many coats tidy!
Originally I couldnt decide on a blue or grey hall. But have now decided to stick with white walls, as I have seen lots of blue pretties that will stand out better then. I want to paint the front door in a nice chalky blue though!
Will keep you updated.
