Have you ever started a DIY project and regretted it straight away. Seriously I have now many times and you would think I would finally have learnt my lesson, yet in September 2016 we decided to update our hall and stairway.
When we had first moved into our home it had the old fashioned artex on the walls and while it was durable it wasn’t what we wanted and it’s been bugging us for at least the last 10 years.
So as you do you when you have a job that you aren’t skilled for. You find yourself someone who is, or in this case said they were. We found ourselves a plaster and paid him a load of money to make our walls worse than when he had started. I think he had over stretched himself a little and the job was more than he could handle but instead of being left with lovely smooth paintable walls we were left with a mess.
Besides the physical mess I was also left with a husband who lost all enthusiasm for the decorating and was seriously down about everything. Its often said that when you live a life of high stress its the little things that can break you down. This hall, stairs and landing was his little thing.
Fast forward a year of apologising for the state of my hall to visitors I finally decided to take matters into my own hands and ask for advice (this time) on decorators. I wanted a recommendation off someone I trusted thats for sure. Anyhow a few months later I am now in love with my new hall, stairs and landing. The decorators work was spotless and my chosen colour I love and even better I have a happy husband who found his enthusiasm again and got busy changing the bannisters and wood work around the doors. I still have to put back the family gallery but I am super happy with it all.
Anyhow what am I telling you all this because just as we were coming to the end of completion i was contacted by a light company called Litecraft asking if I would like to review their site and lights. Err yes please, what a perfect way to finish the hall with a new rather dazzling light.
It’s she beautiful.
Litecraft has an amazing range of lighting, and accessories, home decor and much more. Believe me you can spend an hour or two having a browse. I fell for a number of lights, lamps and shades and I’m now planning room decor around some lights that I need. (It’s need not a want).
Ordering was super easy and delivery was swift and the light was well packaged. All you can want from life.
So right now I am super happy with my new hall and stairs but most of all.
He is too…
*I was gifted this light for the purpose of this review, but the choice was my own as are all my opinions.
