Earlier in the year we built a wall (click here to view) between the open plan L-shaped kitchen/dining room - the kitchen is a good size but simply didn't have enough cupboards, and we also wanted a breakfast bar. Many thanks go to a kitchen fitter called Steve, who was able to convert our hasty scribbles into meaningful constructions, so that we ended up with just what we wanted . . . .
. . . lots more wall and floor cupboard space and a useful 2-seater breakfast bar.
We struggled to find a paint colour that matched the rest of the room, and couldn't agree on a contrast colour (ignore the paint swatches on the wall, they were inherited from the previous owners), so opted instead to find a wallpaper that matched our two new bar stools. Rog hates wallpapering, but I'm quite happy to do it, it was a fairly self-contained space, and only took me about 4 hours from start to finish.
We just love the end result.
