I've been trying for a couple of days to take some nice pictures of the new boudoir, but it's been so cold, grey and rainy that they've all come out looking as though we live at the bottom of a well. Here is a really dreadful one that I tried to adjust on iphoto, so it looks very unnatural. But you get the general idea! I had my grandfather's writing desk renovated and restored recently, with the intention of using it as a dressing table as soon as I find a pretty dressing table mirror. Note the smmmoootthh ceiling..!
And here is one of the new shower room, with all the lights on in the middle of the day. It is really very bright and cheery, honest! Even my mum, who claims to have loved the avocado, will have to admit it's a better use of the space!
The new bookshelves, and the door to the shower room. We are still in the middle of hanging pictures and putting books on the shelves - my husband's main contribution to domestic harmony is deciding what books go where, and it takes him ages...
I'm 39 and married with two children aged seven and four. I'm fatally attracted to house renovation projects, and this is our third in the last seven years, my personal fifth since I bought my first flat in 1996. I think we might have bitten off more than we can chew with the Worst House.
Our architect recently commissioned photographer Joel Knight to take some photos of the Worst House in its finished state. Have a look on his website at joelknightphotography (The Worst House is in a couple of pictures on his Architectural page under 'extensions'.)
You can also see some very scary photos of the Worst House under construction on our architect's site -architecture wk. (The Worst House is under selected projects/residential/Morley Road.)
And photographer Carl Pendle took some pictures of the Worst House in January for Real Homes Magazine - watch this space...
