|Our dining room before we moved in and after some light touch-ups, including partial wallpaper removal. The bare patch of concrete sticks out like a sore thumb.|
|The happy nuptials: These snaps are from our very hand crafted wedding. We needed to cut some of the fabric for the table runners, but no-sewing was required, merely a creative hand wielding an iron.|
|After: finished curtains in situ.|
I had the whole 6’6 of James helping me with the rods, thankfully. Getting them somewhat levelled on my own would have been a mission impossible, especially as the ceiling in this room sags just enough to make everything look crooked regardless. In fact, we had to fix them in place twice, perfectly level at first and then crooked to match the profile of the ceiling – now the end result appears somewhat straight.
Tackling this little eye sore really came to show that putting things out of sight does get them off your mind. Or I am just pretty good avoiding life’s little pitfalls! Either way, this dining room is slowly but surely starting to feel like home.
