Well I am now totally exhausted...2 days of painting my sons bathroom..
I painted his room a couple of weeks ago...and bought him all new modern furniture...and ONCE I start....I kind of can't stop!!
So yesterday his bathroom was next on the agenda..it did have a chocolate feature wall...with chocolate mats/towels etc..BUT I decided it was time for a PURE WHITE REFRESH!!
Soo painted the ceiling...and the walls..the brown wall was a bit of a pain as it needed several coats of paint to cover it..but at least it wasnt a BIG wall..
VERY difficult to reach though as it is above the bath...so I had to precariously put a rickety old wooden ladder half in the bath and half out to reach..
ANYWAY I made it!!
I threw out the old white venetian blinds and my wonderful dad (85yo)..installed the new thicker white wooden blinds..
I changed the handles on the cupboards from white to silver ones..
re sprayed my old iron train carriage holder to a matt silver (was gold)...this holds the towels..
I just have to add a couple of white vases or candle lamps or something...although my 19 yo son uses this bathroom and he is INTO MINIMALISM....
He doesnt know I have repainted/redecorated it for him...he has been away at the snow...so I hope he gets a nice surprise...
well that has been my weekend...I am now exhausted...but probably will start repainting the hallway mid week!!
and PS...it is my 22nd wedding anniversary today...I wonder if my husband has remembered?? I havent said anything..and NEITHER has he...MMMMMM!!! (he is interstate at the moment...so maybe a phone call later on??)
Hello again everyone!! As previous visitors to my site will know..I am a NEW lady to blogland...and it has been a bit daunting... I love looking through other sites..they are all gorgeous and innovative..and might I say an inspiration to me.. I set up my original blog site just by using the pro forma google template etc..but I was NEVER really happy as I couldnt work out how to list my fav blog sites along the side etc etc.. SOO last night I was visiting my gorgeous MANDII's site..and thought I shall go through each one of her favs from top to bottom and see if I could work out what I can do to improve my site... WELL I DIDNT HAVE to scroll down too far...and I found ALI"S page... She had a NEW template listed for sale...and I bit the bullet..bought it..and here it is...THE PINK POODLE.. I just HAD to have that one for the following reasons...I have 2 adult sons..a husband...and a TOY POODLE who is also a BOY/MAN!! AND with my love of the poodle..why NOT indulge my fantasy re girlie things and have this as my NEW BLOG THEME/HEADING etc.. SOO I am all excited about my NEW adventure (so to speak)...and have just listed a few photos of my GORGEOUS "SOOTY" (yes he was on my old site..BUT this is ALL new..soo we have to start off with him!!)...he is my 9 yo baby... and I threw in a photo or two of me with sooty...as I havent got much else to talk about at the minute..!! AND GIRLS...ALISON is THE MOST DELIGHTFUL...GORGEOUS person ... SHE HAS BEEN MORE THAN HELPFUL... she actually got up in the middle of the night and surprised me with an email detailing my new site... SHE IS JUST THE BEST!! words cannot express how happy she has made me...being able to look professional..and with something I love..POODLES!!! ANYWAY enough waffling...I have to finish cleaning the house (per usual)..and photo more bits & bobs for ebay... xx andrea...alias the pink poodle!! I LOVE IT!!
I Love all things Vintage/shabby/flea market...and a tad junky!!
With BOTH adult sons now graduated from universities...
One an accountant..
One a lawyer..
I am now happy scouring flea markets/op shops/antique shops..
looking for another fabulous flea market find to sell on my ebay site/or to keep....
I love my decor magazines and my VAST array of decor books..
I love just being able to blog about anything..any day of the week with no particular theme..
That is why I think i am the queen of random~~~~
