Pub progress....

Painting.. it's NOT supposed to be perfect... it's a pub after all.. but omg I was daunted with all of this and really not sure how it will all go together.. or IF it will.. the door is a damn mess after all my blood, sweat & tears... but fear not.. I have found a cure for it             
further on!!

Below shows how I had to fit the attic window.. a cutout thanks to my newest dremel baby!! SOOO glad I bought it! Makes life SO much easier!!!

And voila!! It fits!!! (YES that is a backwards clock.. not a reverse photo!) Painting still in progress in this part..

Another shot.. oh that poor cleaner.. she really needs a rest! Or a pay rise?

I was using this stuff to clean my windows.. and found it strips the paint.. at first it was an "OMG what have I done?" reaction.. till I remembered.. it's just a pub.. it's going to be a bit worn.. this 'magic eraser' is going to be useful forevermore!!

Inside.. I know.. still not finished.. still feeling chuffed that I got that attic window in!! WOOHOO!! There was no way it was going to fit without my new baby (thanks to Kez who had one and showed me when I visitied earlier this year!)
Oh please excuse the mess.. that cleaner.. perhaps she doesn't deserve a pay rise after all...

Oh wait.. there she is!! On her knees.. AS she should be!! :P
Oh there's that beloved new tool of mine too! <3 it!!

A window.. which has copped the wrath of the magic eraser.. still I like the 'worn' effect.. I guess in the morning I'll be doing some touchups! It IS a tad rough - but it's not a high profit hotel - cheap labor!! 
(good excuse for imperfection perhaps?) 

Making LOTS of little paper boxes... LOTS of cleaning to go.. but having a lot of fun! This is turning out somewhat as expected.. stay tuned..

  1. Great progress :) looking amazing! Glad you like the new tool ....very handy :) It looks like the cleaners going to be busy for a while lol . Great work xoxo

  2. That is a gorgeous red you have chosen and it shows wear well too. :)

    Your backward clock is the same as one I saw in a magic shop over 35 years ago and was sold as a 'left handed clock', while my daughter's friend has one which is an 'Irish clock' :D

  3. Great progress. The cleaner is very busy.
    Bye, Faby

  4. I'm loving watching your progress. Everything you've done is exactly right.

  5. Hello Miniaussie,
    It really looks like it is coming together. It allready looks nicely aged.
