I cheated on the decorating in this bedroom by painting over the wallpaper but it actually looks ok. The artexed ceiling still has to be skimmed (just visible in the photo with fan shapes!!) and I haven't painted the floorboards yet.
Next month we celebrate our pearl wedding anniversary (30 years). The picture on the mirror is one I made several years ago from an anniversary card hubby had given me as I thought it was so lovely. When I showed him he asked 'That's lovely, who gave you that?!! And I thought it had been carefully chosen for these words!
Because hands are meant to be held
Because lips are meant to be kissed
Because words are meant to be spoken
Because tears are meant to be wiped away
Because dreams are meant to be realized
Because love is meant to be nurtured
Because life is meant to be shared -
Because we are meant to be together.
I have spent the last week painting over the wallpaper on the stairs, hall and landing. After the wall coming off with the paper in the lounge I didn't dare risk that happening again. It was all a shade of dark green which has taken 5 coats of white paint to cover!
The next photo will either have a reaction of 'That's awful!' or 'Ingenious!'. I think I like it, hubby does; I think I can safely say it's different. We couldn't find any wall lights we liked for the stairs and landing so hubby decided to polish up an old rain hopper and attach it to the wall over a light fitting and voila!!
What do you think? Now be honest!
