New Hangers

4th December 2018

I remember seeing a blog post a while ago by the lovely Mrs Rackley Home. For anyone who hasn’t come across this lady she is a fantastic home a home and lifestyle blogger and Instagram influencer.

She was recommending some space saving hangers which have stuck in my mind for some time. I am a huge fan of shopping on Amazon Prime, when I order something online I like to know they will arrive quickly.

I found the exact hangers I was looking for they are called non-slip flocked velvet space saving coat hangers. They come in different quantities so I ordered 2 packs of 100.  They are available in many different colours and I chose the black. The best bit is they were only £28.49 for 100 that’s amazing value.

I will update you on how I find them when the clothes are hung up.


 
Wardrobes Assembled

1st December 2018

Wardrobes are assembled and in place. They look amazing I am so happy J we have added LED lighting strips underneath each shelf to add some subtle lighting inside each wardrobe.

We still need to do he plinths, pelmets, shelving and rails before the carpets are laid in 2 weeks’ time.

Thank you to the Bespoke Design Interiors team once again for manufacturing more quality fitted furniture for us.


 

Wardrobe Sub Base

30th November 2018

This evening hubby (with a little help from me) installed the wardrobe sub bases. Our floor is fairly uneven so we set up the laser level. I held the tape measure at different points while hubby adjusted the feet to make sure the base was level.

The wardrobe components are stood up in the hall and on the landing and tomorrow we will start installing them. I am so excited as my clothes have been in black sacks for a couple of months now.


 

New Dressing Table Chair

24th October 2018

Today I received a delivery from Lifestyle Furniture. They contacted me to see if I would like to work with them and review a product. I was delighted and chose a gorgeous chair and a dressing table mirror.

The chair is in a quality light grey fabric with studded edging and dark stained wooden legs. The front legs are even on castors. The back has an elegant curved back which in my opinion gives it a classy elegant feel.

The lovely people at Lifestyle Furniture have also provided me with a discount code to share with you; Discount Code: "cherryoakmanor" receive: £20 off first order with FREE UK SHIPPING (Mainland Only) Click here to visit their site


 

Install of Larger Window

23rd October 2018

So today is finally the day the bricks have been removed to make a much larger opening for our new oak windows. I’ve really been looking forward to this day as it is the last of the major brick dust creation.

I frantically cleared the room last night in preparation and have left plenty of plastic to cover the opening to our bedroom. I was a little concerned about how much dust there would be when I got home, but I have to say I’m pleasantly supposed, the guys have done a fantastic job.

The guys were a little concerned about the roof so we popped out and grabbed some acro and scaffold boards.

Next step will be tidying up around the window, plastering the reveals and installing the windowsill.

We still have quite a bit of preparation work to do before the cabinetry can be installed. I am hoping we can strip the dreaded woodchip off the ceiling this weekend. I will keep you posted.
