Good morning everyone, how are you all I hope everything is good with you all and your all well and happy...Im back yep me in real life, I actually got back on Saturday as Phil decided to drive me back and spend a couple of days here, I think he just wanted a rest bless him...right hands up everyone who knew I would go back to Laura Ashley and get the wallpaper...well you were right we went last Saturday morning just before we left...mind Phil had to drag me kicking and screaming out of the shop before I bought everything in the sale lol...heres the wallpaper and material I bought...lush isnt it
on our way down last Saturday we stopped at a little village called Moy and found an antique village there, it was fabulous, about 4 houses jammed packed full of antiques and knick knacks, theres even a fab coffee shop next door so I knew with a good start like that we would have a productive week and despite a few mishaps (including something that could only happen to me lol) which I will tell you about this week everything went pretty smoothly, we decided instead of Phil paying horrendous rent on his one bed apartment we would do our very best to get the house habitable so he could move in asap, so designing went out the window and I went for a clean simple look for our bedroom which works really well, the design touches will have to come later...of course that meant a trip to Ikea for the sale so we could buy the biggest bed I have ever seen...you have to go to the Ikea sale if you havent been we got a huge triple wardrobe for the bedroom for an unbelievable £17 yes £17 would you believe...so heres the before shot of the bedroom, its not a good shot as the room was very smelly and stinky, I have never seen dirt like that on wallpaper...
and the after...well after stripping the dustiest, dirtiest wallpaper ever, washing the walls down, two coats of cream paint and two coats of cream gloss and a lot of flat pack building (I love building flat pack furniture dont you), this is what it looks like now...what do you think
the bed is massive 168cmsx200cms and the headboard is just as huge and as tall as me but I found a bargain bedspread at Argos that actually fits it...I maybe should have ironed the bedding before the photo though lol...the room has a wonderful airy bright feel to it, after that we sorted out the kitchen and bathroom and moved Phils stuff in and we stayed there from Thursday night...have you ever been in the country at night, the darkness is really dense as theres no light polution like you get in a town...and so so so quiet too...I woke on Friday morning and thought wow those cows sound loud, opened the blind and it was like a western film scene, the cows had got loose and had surrounded the house...I took one look, cows really are huge arent they, and thought...nope they can stay there until the farmer gets them lol....right enough waffle, sorry about the long post but it could have been three times longer you know so consider yourself lucky lol....Im off to collect a parcel from the PO and then I really have loads of work and commenting to catch up on...have a wonderful day everyone
