Thank you for all the lovely comments I have had from everyone regarding the renovations. It is hard work and taking time for myself is going to come when we have all three children in their rooms.
To answer a couple of questions:
Each room has a single feature wall - the kids all got to chose a colour. So Elizabeth's purple wall will be behind her bed, as will Sarah's. Sarah has also chosen a very modern dramatic piece of artwork to hang on her red wall. I think it will be so amazing.
Elizabeth on the other hand wanted something completely peaceful so has chosen a pale purple with light green to accentuate the peaceful feelings. Elizabeth's room also has a lovely sliding door outside which will allow her to head out to enjoy the garden. She has also chosen pale purple curtains to match her wall.
Both girls are getting new beds - Sarah has chosen a black bedroom suite, while Elizabeth has chosen a lovely rich wood. It has been wonderful watching their personalities shine through as they have selected their rooms.
So today it is back to floorboards, I am hoping that Dad and I can finish off Sarah's room and the small passage between the rooms. Then hopefully tomorrow we can begin on Elizabeth's which is quite large, so will take some time.
Furniture is arriving on Thursday, so we do need to be finished. Still having a deadline is really good as it pushes you to keep going.
Once again, thank you for the lovely comments - especially Darlene and Julie.
