We have been redecorating our hallway for a few months now.
The hid.e.ous. artexed walls have all gone being replaced with sleek, plastered newness, the ugly teak stained wood has been coated with a pure white gloss and the boring cream coloured walls have been replaced by duck egg blue and white. The carpet went from biscuit to chocolate (yum!) and away went the African themed curtains to................ahem, still waiting for the right moment to sew the new duck egg blue, white and chocolate patterned curtains! But with my tax return put to bed I think this week my sewing machine will get an airing. I taught myself how to make curtains years ago and I pride myself on such an ability although, to be fair, its not hard.
We covered the radiator with a custom designed unit (radiators are plain puke'ster, you think?) and then we stopped decorating for a few weeks. Mainly because I was collecting ornate frames from charity shops, flea markets and where ever I could legally lay my hands on them to eventually paint them white and scatter them on my "one duck egg blue" wall (the rest are white). I'm awaiting one 8x6 inch photo to arrive before I can share you my lovely scatter frame wall but for now, I can show you our recessed wall at the bottom of the stairs.
I can also share a peep of the outer edge of my scatter frame wall too with this canvas I had made through this company here.
My hallway is such a joy to gambol through instead of wanting to vomit every time I come home. For 6 whole years our hallway has been the bain of our lives and now its almost complete and looking ever-so-lovely, I can kick back and admire its calm presence.
**sigh, I have a lovely hallway, perhaps my life is all but complete..................??**
