Behold the Beast:
Until I work up the
The 'Before' colour was a colour I loved on the paint chip (why does that always always happen!), but wasn't so crazy about it on my walls. It was pleasant enough, it just didn't 'work' with the look I wanted. Instead of a serene, cohesive look, the aqua colour just looked 'off'.
Here are some 'Before' pics:
I wanted to paint it nice white, but a bit more greyish white than pure white. I didn't get any photos of the empty room with the 'After' colour, just a couple of photos after I shifted things back into place.
Here is an 'After' in the little corner near my bed:
I painted the flying pig painting a few years ago, and while Ioved it, it never fit into my home, as the colours didn't go with the more sherbet tones I had my walls painted. Doesn't it look better with the new colours? I love it now! I call this 'Ham Highway'.
Here is another corner. The new wall colour looks much more suited to my furniture.
I still have to figure out what to hang over this tallboy. It looks kind of empty above it. Maybe a nice old mirror. Did I ever mention I have about 5 nice old mirrors in my basement just waiting for a wall? I'm sick sick sick I tell you! Why do I buy so much old ****!!!! Because I love it? See, I'm talking to myself now…
She looks so lonely alone on that wall…She needs a mirror!
Here is my vanity, with a nice assortment of lovely old china! Unfortunately I had a casualty when rehanging them. I lost one of my favourite ones… So sad : (
Okay, so the vanity top requires a little tidy up!
I can't help using some of the vintage-y filters! They make everything look so much sweeter, don't they?
Doctor Who seemed to make his way into my bedroom again!!! I can't seem to hide my love for The Doctor, but my husbands not jealous, so its okay.
My vintage handbag/evening bag collection…another sickness…
Okay, enough of my junk, but I'll end it with a sweet little photo of a really old, lace childs dress. It got a little more 'holly' after I hand washed it, but in DESPERATELY needed washing, but for $5 including the sweet hanger, I felt it was worth it:
You can't really see the hanger from this photo, but its an old wood hanger, painted green with white roses and dots hand painted on it. It has such a lovely old patina. It just makes me smile!
Have a great day!
