My Other Love


What is "My Other Love"? Decorating........ I just love getting in and making a room take on a whole new look. Hubby and I have just spent a week at our house in Burra and turned the front room into a formal loungeroom. We did just have a bed and chest of draws in there and it did look rather drab.....but not anymore.





So I thought I would show you some before and after photos of all our hard work. Really it's not hard work when you love doing it.







Hubby and I work well together when it comes to decorating. I buy and plan it all and we both get in and work the magic. He is good at getting up high and I work well down low. At the end of the day it all happens.




At long last the piano has a home. It was spending it's days in the hall but not anymore. It has pride of place in the new formal loungeroom. The room did have a sliding door and I soon got rid of that and put a by-fold with leadlight in it. I am not a fan of the old sliding door!!! Next year we plan to do up the hall and I think we will need more than a week. It's very long, many doors and I want to put a new front door with leadlight in the frame either side of the door. I'm already planning it and now I just have to get my bits and wait until May 2011.


Patchwork Hugs,

Debs
