Good afternoon - I'm holding my wrists out, ready to receive 'Bad blogger' reprimands! Lol
I'm sorry I've been so poor at posting, though I have tried to visit and comment in between supervising the menfolk in their bid to transform my boy's bedroom before the carpet fitters arrive on Tuesday - I hate scrabbling at the last minute so insist on it all being done with days to spare.
So for today I thought I'd share a couple of cards I've squeezed in and some before and after-ish shots of the room too. Though I will share more pics when the room is all finished!
A friend asked me to make this one - so I got out the Art Parts, chipboard letters and wooden embellishments, am pleased with how it went considering I didn't quite know how to put it all together. I just played around and stuck with glue when I felt it worked!
A quick and simple card using my Teresa Collin's paper and embellishments, with added buttons and candi.
I've made more cards but the photos were rubbish so I won't share those!
Now for the before shots -
Bare floor of the landing.
Looking into my boy's room from door, old paint colours.
And looking across his room.
Took these pics after most of furniture removed and obviously after carpet took up. You can see the holes in the wall where the old fitting came out of the plaster!
Now for the lovely new walls, all painted and new curtain pole fitted with curtains!
Much better - softer neutral tones.
Makes his room seem a lot bigger.
I know the pole is meant to fit the window but this was the smallest size they did of the pole we wanted, BUT it does mean Keagan now has somewhere to hang his special football scarf which I bought him while in Paris, it can now be hung up as a feature - well it will be when everything gets unpacked and put back after the carpet has been fitted!
New light shade, you wait till you see the matching floor lamp, very posh, I can't wait to show you his new blind and canvases too, his room is going to look amazing, and all chosen by the boy himself and paid for by moi!
Take care Zo xx
