Brass fittings

Done a few odd jobs around the house today, put the handle on the lounge door as you can see above.

Also hung the other bronze hall light at the top of the stairs and changed the light switches in the hallway for bronze ones. Getting a nice consistency running through the house now.

Mounted the TV on the wall

I mounted the tellie on the wall in the lounge yesterday. I was a bit worried when the drill went in for the top hole, it was a bit too much like cutting butter with a hot knife. I think it was just between two bricks though as its still up on the wall this morning :-)

Need to cover up the wires now.

Log store

Built our log store yesterday. This was bought for us by Lucie's godmother as a moving in gift but we only found one recently. Now we need to get some logs so they can season before Winter.

Looking forward to using the woodburners later this year!

Hall light

Just finished installing a new light in the hall. I had to make a few adjustments to get the door to open without bashing it. I'm really pleaded we've gone for the bronze furnishings around the house, it looks really good.

Got another one of these to install at the top of the stairs too.

New sofas

Our new sofas were delivered yesterday. We've got one smaller linen one for in the bay window, which fits in very nicely, and a bigger, leather sofa bed for against the wall.

I gave the floor another coat of varnish the night before they arrived. We both lay on them last night and watched the South Africa vs Uruguay game.

New oven

We also had our new oven delivered this week, after the last one was disconnected as it was leaking gas.

Not really had a chance to use it yet, but its got to be better than the last one left here by the previous owner.

Stairway finished

The decorator finished the stairway this week. He's lined and painted the walls and ceiling, so were one more step closer to finishing the house.

We still need a banister and carpet the stairs, but we'll do that once the spare room is finished.
