Day 1...

*Scroll down a post for my Passion for Promarkers DT card*

Okay, so it's day 1 of our refurbishment works and we are now minus a pantry in the kitchen and have a bathroom and toilet that's been knocked together!  The dust was pretty horrendous and at one point hung like a fog at the bottom of the stairs, but the space is amazing! Thankfully,  I managed to keep the worst of it from the other rooms and am now packing EVERYTHING in anticipation of the rewire! I thought I would share a couple of pics, though they're not the best as they were taken with my tab...

...So this was my little kitchen before, with the picture taken from the door to the hallway...
...and this is the old pantry, taken from by the back door. And now...
...from here, it doesn't look too different, but when you see the view from the back door...
...no more pantry! Thankfully,  they discovered that there was already a concrete lintel supporting the ceiling,  so no need for props and steel!  The new door to the kitchen will go in between the front room and living room doors and I'm hoping to fit as many units as possible in! I have dust up my nose, in my hair and on every flat surface, but apart from that,  things are going great guns and to finish off,  our gas meter was fitted today too, ready for the central heating next week! Let's just hope that the momentum continues and they stick to the schedule - with any luck, I'll be painting bedroom ceilings by next weekend?!
Don't forget this week's challenge over at Passion for Promarkers - Julie wants you to 'Give us a P'...think patterned papers,  punches,  paper piecing and of course,  Promarkers!
Thanks for dropping by to see me and have a great week!  Hugs, Lisa x

This takes me back to when ours was done Lisa, but we kept the pantry. We lost our little coat cupboard that was in the lounge, this gave us one long wall in the kitchen and got an extra wall cupboard in. We wouldn't have had any extra room by loosing the pantry so this was our better option. Hope all goes smoothly for you with the works and you manage to keep the dust out of the rooms as best you can. Love Sue x
