I met up with my tutor on Friday and have now officially started my Level 3 diploma in Children and Young People's Workforce!! I have two years to do it but would like to try to finish it sooner than that. I started my first assignment yesterday..............................OMG - just over 2 hours later and I had only completed 2 sections of it with 5 more to go!! and that is only one of lots and lots of units! But tonight I had another go and I must be getting into the flow of it now, as I have just finished another section and it didnt take me long at all! I am actually enjoying the studying - so far!!
Now then - back to our hallway makeover. The walls are painted and I have had a quote from our carpenter for fitting new doors - just need to go in to order the doors now. After this some woodwork painting will be needed and then I can start adding the pretty bits!!
My only problem is that we have a small narrow corridor which leads to our family room. The wallpaper here was awful and totally different to the rest (which I like). In the end we decided that, as it is quite separate to the main hallway, we would rip off the wallpaper and just paint the walls. However, the wall underneath was flaky, bumpy and generally in a bad condition. Between me, my hubby and my dad, we have given it numerous coats of white paint and it isnt looking quite so bad now but still needs something to distract the eye!
I am thinking of covering the wall with items but all I can think of are vintage type enamel signs. I do like this idea, as there are lots that I have seen that I like - but just wondering if anyone has any other ideas??!!
