rainbows on my way to work last week

taken while driving (don't tell anyone)


I've got a very long blank wall that runs from my kitchen through to my lounge/TV room that I wasn't sure how to spruce up. It's been blank for a couple of years and I never seemed to be able to find the right artwork to fit. So, I decided to make my own. I bought a whole lot of canvases (20cm x 15cm), painted them with the left-over paint that I used on the exterior of the house, enlarged a whole lot of my travel photos (15cm x 12cm), stuck them to the canvases, labelled them and . . . voila!!

The photos (1992 - present day) are a great reminder of my travels. Everytime I walk past the display I reminisce . . . You can see that it is still a work in progress. I keep adding to the display - which means I'll just have to keep travelling!!!

Here's some close ups . . .

My bedroom makeover is almost complete. So, here is what my bedroom looks like now. I painted the walls a metallic oppery/brown from Wattyl's metallic pearl collection. It was quite a task to get it looking fairly even so that it shimmers just so. But I think I got it right and I love it!

And here is what my bedroom looked like before:

I got rid of the beige carpet and had the original kauri pine floorboards sanded

I repainted my off-white chair and chandelier to a shimmery shiny black

I bought a new shaggy rug for my tootsies on a cold winter morning

Everything is back in its place - bed, sidetables, chest of drawers, chair, chandelier, curtains, other decorative bits and pieces . . .

Now I just need to make a gorgeous headboard for my bed. Something like:

And I need a mirror above my fireplace and an artwork on the wall where the chair is . . .

Stay tuned!
