I love blogland, I really do. I was so impressed by all the wonderful comments received on my last post about my new/old wardrobe. The response, not surprisingly was an overwhelming NO! to my thoughts of painting our wardrobe. Thank you so much to those of you that took your time to write such passionate and thorough responses. It really was fantastic.
You will then be glad to know that for the time being, you have talked me out of painting the wardrobe.
I've posted a couple of images here of how I'd like the room to feel. Light, relaxed and cosy.
Look at that pretty wardrobe below. Inspiring? No really, as much as I love this look I will resist the lure of the paintbrush :)
Apart from my lovely wardrobe, the only other pieces in our room that I like is this antique chair.
Really, it's a bit of a blank canvas.
Paint the walls, consider a feature wallpapered wall, patch the skirting, install picture rail and cornice, sew a pretty curtain, acquire a new bed and some bedsides, paint the set of drawers and Bob's your uncle. Sounds easy?
So why hasn't it happened yet?
Do your renos and spruce-ups take forever or do you just get them done?
ps, unfortunately we missed out at the auction at the weekend. We unsuccessfully bid on three doors that would have been great at our place. Oh well, hopefully there's a next time.
