I'm sorry I neglected you Little Guestroom - let's kiss and make up :)
God this room is Dull ! I apologise to all friends and family who have stayed here, in this room, over the past couple of years. I simply ran out of decorating steam, and I think, fell out of love with the house a little.
But I'm going to make amends for my indifference and selfishness - this room is getting a makeover!
Now before you get excited and carried with calls of "dump the 80's bed" and "get some bloody colour on the walls" I must tell you that some things are staying ... most notably the early 90's (not 80's!!!!) bed and the paint colours ... and the curtains .... possibly the lampshade, it's early days though.
As we are planning a move at some point (.... in our lifetime I hope) I'm not investing megabucks ...and anyway I have several other rooms requiring even more attention *shameface on*
The very 80's chair (Aaron's from his teenage years) is getting painted (again) and new covers, the salvaged,painted sideboard is getting moved to another room (can you tell we hate to throw away furniture!) I'm making some garlands, some mirrors etc. there'll be textures, textiles galore....
And in my new found enthusiasm I went off shopping in a Grenoble Troc a few days ago and came home with this dressing table - the mirror and drawers were obviously not born together but it's pretty and serves my purposes :) This will be painted Chartreuse green (see there will be colour!)
Oh yes, how could I forget, I'm waiting on these to arrive :D *squeeeee*
