Home Renovations - The Lounge

We (the mister and I) have been saying we want to decorate the lounge for some time now and like moving house, it is a stressful job.  Having done the bathroom and the hallway, we are now pretty much finished decorating the lounge, leaving just the bedroom and the kitchen to do.
The lounge we have is almost L-shaped and being on a main road, having the windows open does naturally affect the paint on the walls giving it a dull dirty look. When we first moved in here, not only did we have to hire some end of tenancy cleaners because it was a state, the previous owner helpfully painted every single wall a bright shade of yellow, so to tone it down with various undercoats and then a neutral shade of magnolia. Now, we have Dulux Perfectly Taupe in its place.

As with any sort of decorating, you start in one place and find a whole host of other problems that creep up.  The main one for us is the carpet, underneath we the underlay we have found laminate flooring, so it will need to come up because in some parts it has pretty much wasted away, so a carpet, two layers of underlay and some laminate to remove.  Now we are waiting a date for the new carpet to be installed in the next few weeks, which means I can't keep procrastinating instead of doing the glossing.

Hopefully by the end of next week we will have found a a new sofa and then got everything in place so life can go back to normal and we can enjoy our new living room.

Have you done any decorating and DIY over the last few months?
