Come dine with me!08:00
Finally I've got some 'after' photos to show you! I'm sure it'll be more likely to be a first after though as I'm sure these rooms will change over time.
So here's the dining room the day we got the keys. Or the next day really.
The seller used this room for his fridge. That was it. When we came to see the house the room was completely empty except a fridge/freezer. Oh and the Madonna boob light.
Here it is now.
I seem to have managed to take the photo at the same angle so that's handy!
