When Tim and I bought a large period property last summer, we took on a major challenge. We were the proud new owners of a large three-story house, but our bank balance was much smaller than the project we had on our hands.
Between two full-time jobs, we managed to squeeze every available minute out of the day for our DIY make-over, researching the market for the best deals available. The hall was the first project, which was transformed for just under £1000. Sticking to our budget was as hard as working through the cold winter nights. We wanted to transform a dark and dated hall into a bright and welcoming space to showcase some of our colourful art and rugs.
