Despite being sidetracked by putting the Duck back on the market, we’ve still managed to get a bit done on Willow. I’ve given up calling them ‘Days’, because we fit in a bit here, a bit there and so it goes.
We are now sleeping in our actual bedroom. Not got any decent photos of it so I will put some up when I have them. We hung a clothes rail and put the chest of drawers under the bed, but we still need more storage. We also want to make the bed into a cross bed at some point, to give us more space around the bed.
The other thing we have planned for the bedroom is a lovely map for the bulkhead wall. If you remember, I said I wanted a map of the Severn… well, eBay came up trumps. This map was drawn by hand in 1950, and shows the Severn, the Gloucester and Sharpness and the Avon. It is quite beautiful. We plan to copy it rather than put up the original.
The other thing we’ve done is install our ‘sideboard’ cupboards in the living room. We felt that we needed more storage for bits and bobs that don’t have a home in the kitchen or bathroom. There will be a worktop on top, the same as the ones on the kitchen, made of beech wood.
