Since moving in 4 years ago the only thing that's changed in the bedroom is the addition of furniture and curtains! Bedrooms are such awkward rooms to decorate with all that big heavy furniture, so I admit i've put if off for too long. But thanks to Valspar Paint UK and the Valspar Paint Club I have the 'umph' to start it! Heres what it did look like... (including a cat!)
When we moved in the living room was a blank , unloved canvas, (see more in my House Tour post here) the walls were newly plastered and painted plain white and the floor was bare concrete...
Spring is here... or so im told, it's still preeeeetty frosty and gloomy here in South Wales. But still, it means summer is getting closer so im getting that antsy restless feeling to be 'doing' something productive. What I really want to be doing is
After ALOT of searching and house viewings (which I admit, some were just me being nosey) we found our gem- A 1900 Stone built miners house. To this day we cant believe what a blessing it was and how we bagged it for 20 grand less than originally advertised for!!!
So here's a tour of all my 'Before' photos and I will gradually be posting on the progress of turning it into our home throughout my blog :)
New catalogues arriving, this season's trends being posted online... come on be honest, I cant be the only one who finds this time of year exciting!? The moment a catalogue drops onto my doormat I cant help but do a little dance, rush like a headless chicken to get all my work done then finally tidy up the living room so that I can relax, sit with a cup of tea (I normally drink coffee but some reason this event calls for tea) and devour every page.
As usual there are several main looks emerging that have taken inspiration from the colours of the year (see my previous post) plus a few ‘mini’ trends and some that are holding on from last year e.g. copper, metallic and marble are still big, as are all shades of grey.
Im a Black Country (that's near Birmingham) Welsh craft making, piano playing, home painting, logo designing, cat loving, crazy dancing girl!
