Update : “Grand Designs” in Sardinia.

The alternative title for this blog was “The last pleasureable touches after the slog in the stazzu lounge”

That’s often the most satisfying bit in a DIY/ rebuild, the part where you get to hang or position your favorite objects in a room. ( I guess you would call it “decoration”. There was a lot of hanging and positioning on shelves in our case though, lol)

Already, with a coat of white paint and the new ceiling, we were happy with the results.But with those sardinian antiques pieces in place, we are pretty delighted now … ( there is still the floor to lay down and the furniture to get but we shan’t think of that yet 😉 )                 And Malcolm thought of an ingenious and traditional way to hang our antiques too. I wonder if you’ll guess what he used … (Tip : it’s recycled from excess material 🙂 )
So let me take you through a series of before and after pictures of the lounge.

The fire place (We chose an original colour for the fireplace as back in the day, only a small handfull of natural dye colours were widely available. That shade of brown was , and still is the most common for fireplaces.)

The kitchenette ( not quite finished)

The new shelves ( with traditional and ornemental kitchen objects )

The bread oven

An existing hole for the old electricity meter box is turned into a sweet alcove

The addition of a stone container in the lounge

A few decorative items
