When we moved into this house The walls were covered with an awful brown. A lot of the walls are still covered with an awful brown. We did the bedrooms before we moved in and I finally got my parents over to my house to help teach me how to paint the rest of the house. It took most of January and February for me to find all the energy to just paint the hall but the difference is amazing! It went from a dark hall to an area that is bright.
With the school holidays upon us I found that I had time again to keep painting so I got Phill to finally finish sanding the walls and I did the first two walls in the lounge. It's amazing how much energy painting takes up!
I have found that the painting takes energy I would otherwise spend crafting but some good does come out of it!
Now here s a photo of the lounge room before we moved in.
So I could get this :D
Not the best time to be taking pictures but that is my craft room to the right... very messy!
Now we get to the important part! The whole reason of course for painting the lounge room was not because it was too dark and dreary, no it was to put up my cross stitch!
Finally my cross stitch has a home!
