89 / 365 New fire place – Before and After photos

Last week our living room looked like this:

then Ant phones from work and says, what do you think about putting the TV on the wall and getting a fire surround.

Now our room looks like this:

Today’s 365 photo

and I. LOVE. IT. 🙂

We spent the morning shopping for new ornaments; probably the best way to spend a morning, if you’re me! (not so much if you’re Ant!!) and I have to say, The Range just may be my new favourite shop.
It was hard to choose because there’s so much to choose from!

I can’t wait to start on our kitchen once the kids have gone away for the week on Easter Sunday.
It’s going to be a lot of work but I know it’s going to be totally worth it. I’ve been wanting to do something drastic with the kitchen for ages and I can now finally get it done 🙂

85 / 365 – Work in progress

We got a great bargain on Ebay yesterday. We won an auction for a fire surround and the winning price was £22 😀
We’d been looking at fire surrounds at B&Q and the cheapest was £159. We were going to get that one but I said I’d check Ebay first. I’m so pleased I did!

We’ve put the TV on the wall and are in the process of fixing the fire place to the wall. We’re not sure if the TV is a bit too high (my fault because I told Ant where to put it!) and we may end up moving it down a bit.

You can’t see the fire and surround very well because it’s a bit dark but I’ll be taking some better photos of the entire wall once it’s all finished and I’ll do a before and after post 🙂
I can’t wait to get it all done; the bad things about making changes is the mess it creates while the work’s being done!
I’ve bought some new ornaments to go on the fireplace and some pictures to go on the wall in place of the family photos we had up; I’ll be spending ages tomorrow getting them put back on the wall up the stairs.
