think Sarah Beeny here...........
this is the house I have bought to let,it needs some redecorating but I am trying to do only what is necessary a la The Beeny!
this is the dining room which is being repainted to get rid of the god awful wallpaper,the carpet might stay for the time being as its ok quality-the light fitting is being changed as well to lighten the room up cos its darker than it looks in the pic.
the kitchen-awful dirty room,I am tiling the walls,replacing the floor with vinyl tiles,might be replacing the worktops but apart from painting the walls I am leaving it the way it was-with a smaller fridge.Oh,I might push the boat out and buy a shade!
the main bedroom-stripping the cheap nasty wallpaper,repainting and putting up a curtain pole-again,might have to leave the carpet for the time as I am skint now!
the hallway-dark horrible carpet needs replacing and the walls could do with a coat of paint and new shades.
the second bedroom-needs a new carpet,but its ok other than that,I will probably just paint the walls and put up a blind or curtain pole.
the bathroom,its being repainted,re-tiled and all the naff fixtures have been taken down and new stainless steel ones put back up (straight!)-I am also going to put up a new blind and a mirror and replace the taps with bargain ones off Ebay.
Now all I have to do is rent it out,which is the scary part incase no-one wants to at the price I want to let it for,oh I forgot to take a pic of the garden which isnt too bad,it has a shed and a little patio which could be quite nice in the summer.
