Here’s a photo from an old post that shows what a junk heap various corners in the house became during the renovating. And here’s another one…

and another…

Those piles of stuff started to really get to me. It was mostly kitchen stuff, coated in a film of kitchen grease (from exposed kitchen shelves and cupboards) and dust. The thought of having to wash everything before actually being able to find a new home for it all almost drove me to dump the lot in a skip and start from scratch again. But that would be wasteful and soooooooo unkind to the earth that I eventually mustered the energy to run a tub fill of hot, soapy water and get out the scrubbing brush.

It took several hours but little by little I made a dent…

Now, as you can see from above, the lounge has been moved well and truly AWAY from the wall where it used to reside (see below).

What to fill the space with?
