It's a slightly different post from my usual five on Friday offering as today I have five photos of my (almost) completed kitchen/dining room to show you ......
..... standing in the hall, looking into the room. There's no natural light in the hall, hence the darkened doorway.
Standing just inside the dining room and looking towards the kitchen. The red storage jars will be swapped for cream ones as soon as I see a set that I like.
This is taken standing in the kitchen and looking back into the dining room. The dresser is my latest bargain buy. The one I've set my heart on costs £2000 which I really can't afford at present, so this is my stop-gap-maybe-permanent solution, bought second-hand from eBay for £165. It's not quite big enough as the shelves in the top section aren't full depth, so I either have to find somewhere else for the biscuit barrels on the bottom shelf or an alternative place for the still-to-be-unpacked glass paperweights. The electrician is coming today to sort out the lights (you can see the cable peeping out on the side of the dresser) and I'm hoping that it's possible to change to a white cable so that it's not so visible.
I'm now standing with my back to the French doors looking back into the other side of the (very small, but big enough for me) kitchen, The red slow cooker will live in the bottom of the dresser - it's out on show because I'm starting a pork casserole in it as soon as I've finished this post.
This is taken from the same spot as the previous photo but looking more towards the doorway to the hall. The oak bookcase belonged to Ced and the chamber pot on top of the bookcase is explained in this post! All the paintwork is white but the side of the door you can see won't be painted until the hall way is done, that's why it looks so grey.
I still have to hang some more pictures, decide on curtains and I may change the wooden knobs on the dresser, but for now I'm counting this as one of the finished rooms. I hope you enjoyed the mini tour.
