I want white painted floorboards in this room so am unsure whether I actually need to strip them back to bare wood first or whether I can just paint over them (any advice would be very welcome).
I have painted the bedroom walls white and the accessories are mainly dark red. Laura Ashley sell a lovely chandelier in this colour which is £150. When I went on their website it is out of stock so I bought a can of spray paint (suede effect) and sprayed a metal chandelier I had bought on ebay for £2.20. Here it is - not bad for under a tenner and it matches the Laura Ashley rugs perfectly!
This is the view from where I am at this moment sitting in the office .The garden is totally different from the one at our old house which was more architectual with grasses and trees rather than flowers. This garden is full of roses and very cottagey. The soil here suits these lilies and there are serveral large clumps of them which everyone admires.
Well, I hope I haven't bored you! Back to the paintbrush and I'll post some before and after photos as the rooms are completed.
