Over the past couple of weekends doors have been hung by the joiner. If you want a door with glass panels at the top that's quite cheap and off the shelf, it either has to be trendy or swirly twee. We went for trendy in the kitchen. I love it, but hubby isn't sure. What do you think?
Here are the dogs modelling how the doors work in case you were unaware. I've just discovered that Bobby is not afraid of Blackberry photos as they don't make an apparently terrifying noise when you turn them on.
Curtain poles have been put up too...
But one little dog is obsessed with the fact that only one door leads to the outside. He's waiting by it in the third picture. We assured him that once we'd put the curtain poles up, we'd go through the door and into the woods.
The poles took too long, he got depressed...
This is why we rarely take the dogs with us when there's work to be done.
(Frankie did get his romp in the forest. My camera stayed in my pocket as I was too buoyed along by his enthusiasm to stop and take pictures.)
BUT, as ever with a renovation, there seems to have to be a setback.
A shockwave caused by removing a knot in the wood in the door adjoining the bedroom and bathroom broke twelve of the tiles on the bathroom wall. We have some spares (only thanks to the eBay seller accidentally sending us too many), so that side doesn't matter too much, but we now have to get the tiler back to remove and replace them, which will cost us extra money.
Luckily the sun is shining, it's warm and the birds are singing. I think if this had happened in rainy January I would have had a rather different take on it.
