All Change!

Last week we finally made a change to the living room, one I have wanted to make for a long time but we have never been in a position to do so, we finally replaced the horrible bars on the stairs. I have never liked the brown 'planks of wood' that adorned the side of the stairs and I wanted rid of them. It has taken us 24 years to get around to it!!!  I have very few pictures of the planks so I had to go back to 2008 to find this shot of Beth trying out her new school uniform to give you an idea. (doesn't she look cute??)
The only thing it was good for was blue tacking Christmas cards to!!!

So last Tuesday we had a chap come around and replace the planks. For a few days we were left with nothing - bit scary so I locked up the port, just in case. 
By the time we came back from the mini cruise we had beautiful spindles in place!!!!

I am so pleased with the finished article it has brightened the place up and makes a huge difference. I wish we had taken the plunge ages ago!!! Just need to clear up the rest of the room and try and sort out the electrics problem affecting the ceiling lights!!!

Lovely! And isn't it weird how we leave stuff for so long, and then when we finally do it it's a piece of cake and we wonder why the hell we didn't do it before?! I've just had the electricians in - they did the job for a song and it has made such a difference. WHY!!??!?!
