Back in August 2010 I wrote a post about Project Payne, a one bed rental apartment we’d just started renovating in a back to brick refurb: https://moregeous.wordpress.com/2010/08/20/tips-project-payne-replacement-joist-ends/
At the same time we were also under pressure to redesign and complete Green Tea restaurant in record time, so there wasn’t a minute to photograph Payne before the tenant arrived. Her comment when she moved in was “I feel like a princess” so as you can imagine I was gutted not to have any blogged evidence of our royal interior!
Melanie reluctantly moved out this weekend to share with her moving-to-Manchester sister, leaving behind a lovely bunch of flowers with some chocolates for us – very nice. Now was my chance and on Thursday I hoisted over some dressing items & bedding and snapped away for a couple of hours, meaning the letting agents are satisfied as they now have images to list, and I’m happy as I now have images to post 🙂
This was the bedroom with it’s en-suite shower room before works, minging huh? It took up way too much of the bedroom plus was the wrong shape. I wanted the bed over to the opposite side of the room – where the pink item is bottom left corner. In order to do this, the stud walls had to come down and the shape of the en-suite altered. Don’t do things by halves here, you know.
So it all came down and out, with new stud walls going up in a slightly altered way. Basically the loo and the basin swapped places, meaning I could reduce the size of the room , giving a better layout to the bedroom. See quick sketch I just did for you – very rough!
Note To Self – MUST tile behind basin!!!
I’ll give you a teaser of what’s in the bedroom…..
