CHAOS & KNOBS!!!! Ceramic ones!

The house looks like a bomb has hit it, dust and clutter from rooms being decorated upstairs are slowly having an impact on the rest of the house and with another 4 weeks before carpet fitting day, I know it's going to get much worse before it gets better!

My poor craft room has been literally ripped to pieces, at the weekend wall cupboards and shelves were taken down, the upper part of the wall painted brilliant white, and on Sunday my lovely hubby rehung the cupboards and put up some new cube storage. Does happy dance! The actual storage boxes were not what I had in mind but were half price in Argos so I plan to give them a bit of a re-vamp too...eventually.

After the wall cupboards and cube storage were in place, it was time to clear the clutter underneath.......and heavens above, what do you know, I had a 3 metre worktop under it all. I hadn't seen that in ages! I was going to stop at that point but no, I wasn't going to be happy until the worktop had been removed so that I could paint all the wall and skirting boards behind it all. But that is as far as I have got and my poorly craft room hasn't been touched since Sunday!

I don't think I'll being doing any crafting in 
here for some time!!

Yesterday I decided it was time to rip up the rest of the stair carpet, the old gripper rods and underlay in preparation of today, when my plan is to paint the staircase. It made sense to me to do it today as, apart from Bruce, I have the house to myself.

Despite all the chaos, Mr Postie arrived yesterday with a lovely box of goodies, no, not craft stuff. KNOBS! Ceramic ones. I love them, cannot wait to finish revamping the few few bits of furniture and getting these babies out on show! LOL

Little things please little minds!

Best finish my cuppa and get on, those stairs aren't going to paint themselves.
