Transformations

Remember when the chimney breast in our dining room looked like this in early August;


And then we found some rather fetching wall paper;


And then it all got a little messy and disheartening;


And then it got a little cleaner, a little nicer and a little nearer the end;


And then it got painted properly and the walls around it changed colour and all it needed was the new floor;


And today the final ingredient arrived and it's a snuggly cosy place to stash the train track at the end of the day and a place to sit for stories and snuggles;


It makes me smile everytime I go past it!!
