We haven't been able to receive any emails at work which meant I didn't open my dad's messages with the latest photos of my pub until I got home. But what a treat it was when I did.
|The anticipation - ready for wallpaper|
I've asked him to take photos as he progresses and it's lovely seeing this little room take shape. I can't wait to have it back and fill it with all the furniture and bits and pieces I've purchased over the years.
|The front of the pub|
The front elevation has now been painted and is just as I imagined - the colour is perfect. There's been a lot of discussion lately about the name of the pub (which will always be The Rachel's Return) and how the sign should be painted. Letters have been ordered and hopefully I'll be able to show you them in my next post.
|Almost ready for furniture|
The inside of the pub is looking amazing - wallpaper, flooring, skirting, coving and lights are all complete. I've always known it would be what I call an 'old man's pub' and I hope that has been achieved with the decoration.
Finally, who can guess what these are? Excuse the photo - taken with a mobile rather than the camera.
