We moved just over a month ago. There is loads to do and things are moving rather slowly. I eat our new house but there are some things that are rather dated, like this bathroom...
(That's my kiddo being goofy)
I'm pretty sure that the wallpaper was original to the house and it was hideous. It was sort of spongy and plasticy and just all sorts of wrong. It was also a gigantic pain in the bottom to remove in parts... but after three nights it eventually came off and I was left with this...
Now, I really admire people who can use colour, people who can grab a can of bright red paint and slap it on the wall, but I am not one of those people. I shamefully admit that I am one of those who grab a can of white, or off white and go to town. Although I wish I were a brave painter I do eat my freshly painted black and white bathroom.
The mirror is hung low so that the kiddo can see into it. The poor thing has spent a month and a half struggling to see into mirrors that are too high for him.
These are some RAAR grr ugggh old dowels we found in the storage space above our garage. Below is an lovely knickknack cupboard that craftewoman sent me for the 'birds, birds, birds' unicorn zombie apocalypse. I'm going to put old bottles and other lovely little things in there.
The big D and I worked on this project yesterday. I took an old broken frame and used scrapbooking paper, faux pearls, rickrack and a crown brad to make this silhouette portrait of the kiddo to hang.
In addition to being frightful of colour I'm also cheap as can be and on a budget. Here's a rundown of my costs
$15 white eco friendly paint for the walls
$17 white floor paint
$3.94 2 metres fabric for curtains
$2 supplies for silhouette picture
Everything else was stuff from my stash (frames, atc's, vase, cotton to line curtains).
There are still some spots that need attention but I'm so happy with how things have turned out so far that I couldn't wait to share. Yippie!
