Some before and after shots.....

 This is an early shot of our new home after we first purchased it back in September last year.....
 And here it is now freshly painted; with the exception of the doors and handrail on the balcony all being painted black.
 This is our dining room taken from the kitchen; over the top.....our agent doing the hard sell.  Little did he know but i was already sold.
 Because this is what i could see.  Get rid of the cork....redo the kitchen and give the whole area a fresh new look.  Did you notice we also got rid of the bookcases at the end which weren't really well made; and made and entrance into the gatehouse which is now our bathroom/laundry.
As you can see from the above shots the kitchen has changed entirely.  The cupboards were poorly made and were only lami-panel that had chipped over time.  The bench tops were pale grey granite which was ok but not my colour preference; so seeing we were going to re-design the whole kitchen and put in new appliances , we decided to redo the bench tops as well.  The kitchen was pulled out and sold to help pay for other things ....ha ha .  I will be showing you more before and after shots as they become more finished.  Have a great weekend ....x
