Today I painted Jem's wardrobe black - with chalkboard paint - and she is free to scribble all over it. I must stress the wardrobe is a very daggy old thing that was here when we moved in. She loves It !!! and I love that it is so much fun (and we don't have black walls).
I'll post a proper pic when we have handles etc.
The hallway is all but empty . Usually there would be a chair, a stack of suitcases and probably a guitar or two in here. (There would most definitely be dirty socks up by Master 12's door as well).Tomorrow I will be sugar soaping the last of the wallpaper paste off and starting to prep and paint.
I bet you are all envious of that design statement there with the bin !
The right shade of whiteishness has finally been chosen (did you know there were so many?)and I am very keen to start slapping the paint around. The hallway is a kind of green grey and pink at the moment and very dark.
On my way to the shops today to forget the sugar soap (as you do) I just ducked in to the local op-shop for a second (because of course I was so very busy at home but really just a little look wouldn't hurt would it?)
Well yay for the grand total of $4.75 I got some coat hangers for my collection and this great tin - I love that blue colour. It is saying button tin to me!
And of course I got a little bit of crafting in today as well. This is Hoot from a great Melly and Me pattern. I need to finish off the hand sewing and then he is done. I'm not sure about the ears - do any birds have ears that stick out like this? but I love the feet !
Tomorrow is gym, op shop (they are almost next door to each other) then home to paint !
