Imagination required

Hi all..i bet you think i have been quiet on the decorating front..well thats about to change.
Ok this wall behind the up graded wardrobes was a very deep red. We found the tin of emulsion earlier this year unopened in our shed..its called Biscuit Crunch..not wanting to waste it we decided to do the Bedroom..it didn't cost much but took a lot of time and patience.The wardrobes were tatty pine effect..they got painted and wallpapered..the wallpaper was 2 rolls for £9..not bad.
 The curtains came from my mum and the lampshade is from the spare room so no cost there.
 My absolutely brilliant husband then papered the bedside cabinets.
 And finally this huge unit..it was originally pink drawers and blue around it..several coats of gloss later and its perfect
 The table was really banged up pine but like above several coats of paint and its gorgeous
 He also papered the end of the bed..the bed itself was that orangey pine..now its white..it took a whole tin of gloss to paint it and we had to be very careful when we put the mattress back.
All in all it was about £40 ..but lots of time..i totally forgot to take before pictures as we were halfway through before i realized it..like i say imagine it red and cream..with red curtains..it looked nice but a little dark..now its light and airy and will last us a while ..and i have an almost whole roll left..i wonder what to do with it?
take care

  1. You could use the wallpaper to cover some storage boxes, maybe.

  2. What a great job you have done in the bedroom. It must look so light now that all the red and pine is gone. It's amazing what a bit of paint and paper and lots of time can accomplish!

  3. It's lovely Sara - what a fab job you have done. I redid my bathroom a few months ago with some Parisienne wallpaper and a shabby French look - we love it!

  4. Sara it looks gorgeous, must be such a change from th pine, some of which we still have. That Simon of yours is very clever.

    As Janice says it must look so light now.

    I have a weakness for nice bed linen and towels, so I do perhaps buy more than I should. I will say Asda have some beautiful bed linen at very reasonable prices. Heather bought a beautiful pale grey set a couple of weeks ago, kingsize, and I think it was only £15. If ever you need any and you have a large store need you, have a look.

    Love and hugs
