some befores and afters...so far

So...yesterday I  painted the little back room...here you will see the before and the after...I am still yet to fix the skirting boards...but these will be done by tonight...i am also going to sand some of the boarder paint off to expose the wood behind the paint...give it a slightly beachy feel....lots more to come....


hope you like the befores and afters on the back frame...this frame is from ikea..it was ony 17 dollars...but it is a frame thats not meant to come apart...it was tricky, but you know me...i love colour....popped these little crocheted flowers in after painting over the top of the trees that were in the frame to begin with...cute don't think????



aso, this black frame is plastic..it cost $7....i put Jacobs art in it...how cool does it look????






well...thats it until i get the curtains and furniture in....check out the cute little light fitting...it was a do it yourselfer...gotta love those!!!

until next time
lots of it

Mandy, the room looks great. I hope that your son is doing better and that you have been able to find someone to talk to about his issues. I can imagine how hard it is on you, to watch him suffer. Oh my goodness.
It is good to have a house project to focus on. I bet he loves it.
