Album description:

Looking like the move will start on the 12th April...fingers crossed
Lucky enough to have 2 weeks to move and the plan is to decorate a room and then move the furniture in then do another and so on.....OH says l won't be able to wait lol!

Painted furniture photos are of everything we have stripped painted and varnished ready for the move including a rescued pine beadhead we will turn into a bench for the porch...Stripped and started the 1st coat of paint but awaiting a measurement so my attention is on painting the dining chairs for now
Just over 2 weeks to go can't wait to get my hands on Bakewell
UPDATE: Collected the keys on the 12th painted as much as we could white and moved in on the 17th..felt like home straight away we love it so much the sun has been shining every day since the move and the layout of Bakewell is perfect for us l will add pictures as we complete rooms but for now just a few pics of the house so far...still lots of boxes and sorting to do and lots of decisions to make and decorating but that will take months to complete..all white walls for now so we can see what to add and what to change........oh happy days!!

What an amazing work you've done with the bench! I love all the colours you've used for the lounge/dining area as well, very clever to just use some table mats to give some more colours to the room.

Bakewell responded 2010-06-28:

Thanks been in 10 weeks now ha a couple of weeks off decorating to take the sunshine in so no new photos and still have boxes to


Petra, 2010-05-05

Bakewell responded 2010-05-06:

Hi a long time crafter l'm in a disaster area right now still fetching boxes of craft stuffs from old house and it's piling up into mountains in my new craft room just now so all decorating decisions on hold hehe...although yep the black and pink is one thats been bought ready to go on the wall of the kitchen
Goodness knows when l will get to pasting it on the walls though!

Great bargains! - £1 for a bed, you can't go wrong with that!:-) The candle stick looks great in white.

Bakewell responded 2010-04-27:

MissJ responded 2010-04-28:

The bed head looks great! The fireplace looks much nicer in a lighter colour - I'm amazed how much you've already done:-)


kikki, 2010-03-29

The inspiration pictures are great! The bedroom is my favourite, eclectic I would say with a classic to modern twist. Can't wait to see the "real" pictures:-)

Bakewell responded 2010-03-30:

Charlie, 2010-03-26
