After all the painting was done, the carpet men came two days before Christmas.
As well as the painting, I put up some fitted shelves (using recycled mahogany from the old window surrounds we ripped out) to replace a cheap and nasty bookshelf from Argos, and made a door (painted to match the bedroom door) to turn some shelves into a slimline wardrobe.
Turning clockwise.... If you refer to the plan a couple of posts ago you'll see just how close the reality is to the computer simulation.

After the skirting boards were replaced and painted black, the fireplace needed attention.
Lots of work was done restoring the door. It was sanded down, all the cracks and woodworm holes were filled and a nice neat wooden bead was added around all the panels. It was then primed with grey acrylic primer.
We could then paint it with gloss according to Arne's design. The walls are being painted in the background.
