The plastering is finished!

After a two-year patient wait, the kitchen has been plastered! Today the finishing touches were added and now we have to wait (only three days this time!) to paint it. I have been picking out colours and deciding on accessories...a few of which I will share in due course!

The kitchen area already has cream tiles, so the majority of the walls will be cream to match with a feature wall at the back:

(The radiator is already back on the wall now)

I also have something planned for this part of the kitchen - but I don't want to giveaway too much at the moment!

I am looking forward to painting now so that we can move the furniture back and fix the larder to the wall - currently all of our cupboard food is in the conservatory for all to see!


This evening Steve went to visit his brother to watch the football, so I decided to finish my Document 2010 - October.

I used October's scrapagogo kit which I love! The colours are beautiful and I fell in love with the fabric flower and purple ribbon:

I also had another play around with the middle pages, I had completed one side at my crop on Monday but when I looked at it today it needed shuffling so that the second side didn't look over-crowded. Here are my completed pages:

I'm quite tired now so I think I'm off, I went to a children's adventure centre today with the children's centre and I think I am more tired than the children!!!!

So, how was the plastering process? we start on Monday and I'm scared of the mess - then I just think I am a lunatic because everything here is a mess!
I will be following to see how you put it all together - this is an area close to me heart at the moment :-)
