Bee happy ..... decorate!

Well, I've done it, the kitchen is all finished, wallpapered on Saturday afternoon.  At lunch I asked husband what he had got planned for the afternoon and before he realised it he was helping me wallpaper! lol

He has earned several gold stars as he was a brilliant assistant, passing tools, pasting wallpaper and wiping the pasting table, he's so wonderful!

He also took pics for me so here are a few of them, just need to put some pictures back up on the walls now.

Setting up

After getting the tricky bit done around the door and radiator we
stopped for a tea break :)

Finished at about 6.30pm on Saturday, all tidy again. Not bad
to say we started at about 1.30pm

Remember when I painted the woodwork the other day,
well the little dog has got go faster stripes now after walking
near the wet paint!

While the fridge was pulled out to paper behind husband changed the water filter for me, it may have helped him agreeing to wallpaper as he only had to pull the fridge out once then ;)
