We are about to embark on decorating the front bedroom, it's going to be mammoth task as we will be doing it mostly on weekends, so to keep our motivation up I maybe posting one or two pics on here as work progresses.

Anyone else have projects on the go?

Not as such. I did some hefty DIY years ago and it's stood the test of time.

I'm now a whizz with Contiboard

Painting, recently painted my wife's sewing room (including a feature wall) and my "den."
Also painted some gutters and downpipes.
Now doing the dining room.

Contiboard is broadly similar to those flat sheets of wood used to make flat pack furniture. Glued sawdust in the centre and a thin layer of fragile laminate on the outside.

I built a complete wall to wall set of cabinets with it years ago.
