Another room down.
Jason found the study to be the most frustrating room to work on because it was poorly constructed in the first place. Nothing is square and it was rough as guts.
It still is, but that's an old house for you. It would quickly lose its appeal if we tried to make it into the Taj Mahal. It's come a long way though from how it used to be.
The only thing left to do is to source a suitable light fitting for the ceiling. Anyway, here are the after shots.

The architraves around the windows were replaced and made to match the rest of the house. The two chairs are Danish Quality Furniture (DQF) which were made in Brisbane.
|New brass fittings (which caused so many tears last week) on the old casement windows|
|quad was used around the walls as skirting - to seal the gap from floor board to wall.|
Jason built floor to ceiling book shelves last year in a dead space in the corner of the room.
|We've centred the desk under the window when we decluttered the study. |
We also moved all the electrical points lower to the ground, there used to be one power point at waist height near the door.
|It's nice to be able to open the two doors of the study to get a nice breeze on hot still days.|
|A fresh coat of paint in the study made a world of difference. We used Dulux wash and wear for the walls|
and gloss white for the doors and windows. We scraped the cream paint off the old door knobs. Jason then polished the copper plate
And here are the before shots:
|Bodgy wood work|
|We put the desk close to this wall because of the lack of power points in the room. We also had a set of book shelves on the other side of the desk|
|We've put these shelves in Jason's hobby room under the house|
