Bear in mind that all the Before and After photos were taken at the same time of day - the darkness in the rooms in the Before shots is due to the overgrown foliage outside the windows blocking natural light, and with the room lights switched on. In the After photos, the room lights are not even switched on and the light in the rooms is purely due to sunlight.
My daughter's room Before:
|The walls are actually white, but the sun has reflected the red duvet cover around the room|
|I covet the throw on her bed every time I go in there. And can't help stroking it because it's sooo so soft|
My bedroom Before:
Spare room Before:
|The landlady says she will paint the window frames in summer|
The landlady came round this morning - the first time since we moved in - and was delighted with how good it is looking. She even thought the yard looked great. I guess compared with how it was, it does. But to me it still looks pretty awful with a great deal to be done. More on that later.
