My answers:

1. Has your house been renovated?
Yes! The 'bare bones' of my home is a two bedroom bungalow. There are a lot of them in the area and there are a lot of them that have been extended and modified to suit today's living. Our home was originally extended by around half again into the garden back in 2007. It wasn't done very well, as the house ended up with two really long thin rooms at the back. Then those owners had to sell the place because they went bankrupt and the next owners reconfigured the whole house to have a much better 'flow'. They were going to live here, but then their relationship went South so they sold it to us. So we ended up with a nicely renovated house which is really unusual for us as we have gutted the three previous places we owned.

2. Have you ever painted a room?
Yes! I've painted room in the three houses we owned before this one and in this one I got painting quite quickly as the previous owners liked a particularly dark shade of grey which I hated, so that was one of the first things to go! I've also painted rooms in Youngest and Eldest Cee's homes as well :)

3. Have you ever put in a new floor in a house?
We haven't replaced a floor, but I've replace floor coverings such as carpeting. Mr Cee laid laminate flooring in our last house in the kitchen.

4. Have you ever worked with wallpaper?
'Worked with' as in hung - yes. We did that in our first house (home number 2 after our flat). We actually removed all the wallpaper from our last house and this one doesn't have any wallpaper. I quite like wallpaper, but I also like the clean look of plain walls as I like to hang pictures and artwork on the walls which I think looks better with a plain background.

5. Have you ever choose new colors for your flat or house?
Yes - see #2. We have painted out the rather dull grey/blue in the hallways here as it was boring. Now it's a light reflective pale yellow which looks much better. The guest cloakroom was the same colour and that's a light turquoise now which is much cheerier. The living room is white with a pale green feature wall.
