I think I may have mentioned before about the extensive renovation programme we’ve been carrying out on our house. The most recent project was converting the loft to a spare bedroom, which was technically completed around July. I say technically, because as far as the builders were concerned THEY had finished, which usually means there’s at least three months’ worth of work left for us to do.
With this room, due to the nature of the stairs (spiral and ridiculously narrow) we had to plan the task of furnishing it quite carefully; basically anything bigger than the size of a dining chair had to be put in the room BEFORE the stairs went in. God knows how we ever get that king-size bed out of there again. And we’ve had to be selective about the other pieces we buy for the room; the desk was flat packed, although it still took two of us to get it up the stairs, one agonising step at a time. And the super-sized canvas we just had to have for the one vertical wall thankfully fitted through the gap between the banisters and the aperture otherwise it would have found itself being re-sited elsewhere in the house.
Still, I’m very pleased with the way the space has turned out, especially as I got my way over it having dual-use as a work area for my sewing projects. The one remaining item on my wish list is a stool to go with the retro writing desk I sourced for a sewing table. Any ideas?
