Things are looking more interesting at the Church loft.
The plasterboard has gone in for the bathroom and entrance.
Which gives me much more of a feel for the space.

I have inherited this lovely storage cupboard from my aunt.
The dark wood was not really my taste.
So I painted it and it started off in the hallway of my last house.

I don't want to go out and pay for a new cupboard to put my sink on in the bathroom so it's going to be reinvented.
I put it in situ this morning and you can see the idea.
The plumber has started putting in the pipes for the taps and I am going to add some pretty tiles behind it.
Not only will I have happy memories of my aunt but it will be a really practical storage for all that stuff we girls have
in the bathroom! I am thinking I might paint it a vintage pink colour. I haven't decided yet...

My stairs have gone in which was really exciting to walk up the first time. No more going up the ladder outside the front of the house. It feels like a proper room now.
Need to choose the spindles next.

The window went in yesterday which has brought so much more light in.
The freestanding bath will be in front of the window.
Will show some of my bathroom and bath ideas tomorrow.

My sheets are old and had it with holes and mud stains from my dogs jumping on the bed 
(No they are not allowed to but somehow seem to find the opportunity when I'm not looking)!
Having a browse around the Web last night I found these gorgeous sheets on Loaf's Website.
Think they will be just the right look I am after for my bedroom in the loft.
Now I have got to justify this amount of money on sheets....

My first post! I have started in the loft as at the moment we only have 2 bedrooms plus a box room which is way too small for a teenager with enough electrical equipment to fill Curry's!
The guys doing the job are racing along. They only started on the 6th January and already the stairs went in today which was very exciting. I am playing catch up as I didn't know it would take shape so quickly. So I'm putting in an order for the bathroom tomorrow. I've also been having a look round at tiles and really liking the mismatched look.
I've put a couple of pics of the loft from this week and will share tomorrow some initial ideas on the look I am after.

      The chimney breast has been removed that is not in use to make more room.

                             This is where the dormer window will be with hopefully a view of the sea!
