We have taken the plunge. This is the year that the lounge gets it big make over. Being almost eight metres long and approximately three metres wide, this is not a small space.
Not just a lick of paint this time, we are going for new ceilings, new wall coverings, new skirting boards, new laminate flooring. We are going to put right what fifty years of bodging has achieved.
No more 'Humpty Dumpty' walls. No more floor level electrical points (anything with a moulded plug requires an adapter at this time!). No more polystyrene covings. No more bloody 'wood chip wallpaper' on the ceilings! If the budget allows, then this room will also get double glazing.
