Out with the old.....

In with the new!
2 days until a brand new year, can you believe it...I just feel like this year has flown by?!
Another card I made for Nikishell's card swap using recycled materials.

I havnt been online for ages - We've been busy painting...well not me, Ive been looking after my boys and getting them out of the way.

My bedroom is complete and the hallway and back family room, its such a slow process when you are living in the house as furniture has to be moved and protected. I had a Dulux colour consultant come in two weeks ago and she gave me some good ideas. I like how everything is looking so far!

My house is one big mess though!! a good chance to declutter ...cant wait until its over!

Before shot of the back family room - ive been so over the pale blue for ages now
and after....
what do you think? all the wood door frames still need to be painted white - I think it will look fresh and crisp... i like it!
I didnt think my house would suit a feature wall as its quite old but I like the effect.

Have a FAB weekend everyone!!

  11. Anastasia, what wonderful photos! We too are in the midst of renovations and are up to our ears in drywall dust. I love the staggered windows and blue room. I also love the leaded glass door leading into the porch area.

    HI Ace ~ I love love love it, I liked it before too, I remember loving a lot of features in your house when I was there - sheesh was that TWO years ago...?!

    I want to do RED feature walls that match my lovely lounge, you've inspired me to nag Romes some more about it.

    2008 is GREAT

    Your freind Helen x
