So yesterday became "The Great Room Reno" of 2012 in our house. I was getting a bit sick of these sights...
I knew the layout that would probably work the best, and after a spontaneous trip to Typo during their post Christmas sale I got some inspiration (hence not needing Pinterest, which I wish I had time for, but am kinda glad I dont at the same time!)
It was cleaned to within an inch of its life- who knew those sheer curtains weren't grey?
This cute little frame (with no hooks on the back- grrr!) was pretty easy to make- I had to stick it up with Command adhesive strips so crossing my fingers they all hold!
here are the fixin's if you're interested....
and the wall decals were redcued to $5 each, so some little messages were added.
great button clock by Brianna
and a clever place for all the tacky posters hehe
So overall I'm pretty happy with it. A few finishing touches such as recovering the pink notice board (her brief was 'no pink' in the room!) and teaching her to keep the desk tidy! I think seeing it from the door might be a good reminder? Fingers crossed....
Oh, and my knitted bunting has been rejected! I think she was humoring me there, it was really my taste :) But as I dont have anywhere else to put it, I thought a giveaway was needed- so if this floats your boat, leave a comment saying you're interested and i'll draw a winner? I'm no good as setting time frames (well, sticking to them anyway) so a week or two?
A bit of redecorating to bring in the New Year is good fun!
