Before I begin this post, I need to tell you that I changed for some unknown and stupid reason to Google+.
It was a nightmare. I thought it might help to meet new readers but all it did was stop our old friends commenting. Hope all is now back to normal now.
Familiarity can feel comforting - true?
Last Sunday we were returning from having coffee at our friend's home with the great coffee machine - you know him as Coffee Snob. As we were driving home, we discovered that the old furniture warehouse had changed hands and name. I said to Sue, "Do want to check it out". At the same time I thought, every time we've popped in, well in most cases - we've bought something.
This visit was was to prove the theory correct. Sitting there at the back of the warehouse was a full bed (we thought a bed-head only would be nice) and it was just what we had in mind.
Although we purchased it last Sunday, it was only delivered this weekend.
So guess what - now that the bathroom is finished, I have a bedroom project. We can't have a light and breezy style bed in a dark and old style bedroom. Our bedroom was in a sort of peach colour with a dusty green woodwork. There was a wallpaper frieze just under the picture rail - all very charming and of the era I'm told! So, time for a change I'm also told. I'm sure it would have been easier to have painted the bed to match the room, but oh nooooooooo!
Sue wanted a new look. Here we go again, from bathroom saga to bedroom saga. I'm sure it will be inspirational (or boring) for many more future posts at "Melbourne Our Home" - the title is very appropriate I guess with all this make-over!!!
|The bed that started a bedroom renovation.|
|The original colour still on the door. I started on the sanding this weekend which is now finished ready to undercoat.|
I kind of liked the initial distressed look on the door surround but I was out voted (again).....
|Started the first undercoat to see how it will look later. It will certainly lighten up the room.|
So what do you think - not a bad weekends effort, hey!
