well my husband and i bought this old house a couple of weeks ago. As i dont do things in halves, i decided that we would renvate it as much as we can in the whole 5 days he had at home  Tongue (he works away and comes home once a month).

so we got sanding, primeing, painting- from the ceilings to the ornate cornices; the walls; skirtings, doors and frames; and the original jarrah floorboards. we worked way past midnight every night while he was here, then i moved in the day he flew out. was so crazy and hectic, but the house is now comfortable and liveable- for now. there are still a few things to do....



















the temporary afters will be in the next post...

You did that all in 5 days? That is seriously impressive. The colours are wonderful - it looks great.

All I can say is WOW! You really brightened the space up with the new paint and your floors are gorgeous.

I love the floors, they're just gorgeous! And the charcoal in the dining room is awesome.

you're right, your floors are beautiful. If I had wood ones I would definatly go dark. I also really like the wire shelves that you chose for the kitchen, they look very clean.

Did you use black stain or paint on the floor?  Does it show every speck of dust?  I would love to do that in our next house (which we just bought -- it's completely gutted).
