Project 3: The Lounge Makeover

Somehow eight years have slipped by. I moved into this house in 2004 (gulp!) which was in need of modernisation and eight years later the lounge hasn't been properly redecorated. The kitchen and bathroom took priority and we haven't had enough space to get the lounge done until the lodger moved out. So my reason for being so quiet over the past week or so is below. Only problem is we have two bedrooms to get on with now!

BEFORE

In the picture above you can see the textured wallpaper that was the feature wall along with some of the not-so-lovely pink carpet.

DURING
On the other three walls (which were originally bright peach when I moved in) we have changed the colour to Perfectly Taupe to freshen them up.

DURING

The previous residents had a thing for colour it would seem! If the bright peach front room and bright yellow hallway (now both neutral) weren't enough evidence, then we seem to have unearthed some more.
AFTER
Ah! Much better. New feature wall, other walls painted and new laminate flooring. Think I'll go and have a lie down now.
