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?
