I mean decorating realy not cleaning, although the latter wouldn't go a miss.

I keep starting stuff and then not finnishing it.

In urgent need or decorating (meaning paper hanging off etc etc) are...

My room - never been done, has old bits of wallpaper hanging off and no carpet. I do however already have the linning paper and paint needed.

Hall,stairs and landing - Seems like a HUGE job to me which puts me off.

Living room - Started and never finnished by xp, quite a big room so again seems daunting.

Kitchen - Not too bad, just needs painting and a few tiles behind cooker. Already have paint and blind.

So, pick a room and make me do it until it is finnished please.

why not do the kitchen first if it seems manageable? then you will feel inspired to take on bigger challenges.

That's what i'd do.

Kitchen. It sounds as though it needs the least doing so will be finished the quickest. I find once I have the ball rolling and see the end result it spurs me on to do the rest. TBH I would get someone in to do stairs. Ours need refreshing but it is tricky and dangerous imo (and we have 4 floors so a huge job)

Ok, kitchen it is, will get some paper to sand down the skirting this week, and then make a start.

Would love to get someone in to do the stairs but unfortunatly there is no way I can afford to.

Need to meet a painter/decorater/builder/general handyman type bloke really
