We have lived in this house now for just over 6 years and we never decorated most of the rooms, just the kids and bathroom. I hated our living wall paper, it was magnolia which I didn't mind but it was that horrible textured wallpaper, with old fashioned flowers all over it (sorry forgot to take before photos! what I'm I like!). So I decided we should strip it all off and just paint on a nice smooth surface. Everyone kept saying just to paint over the horrible textured wallpaper as it would be much easier and quicker. But no, I wanted it off!
Was a big mistake!!!
It took forever to do!!! And me and my husband are hopeless at DIY and decorating. It took us a day and a half just to just strip the wallpaper!! From 8am till midnight!
It was too late for second thoughts half way through! so on we went.
Just look at the state!
But we did it, we painted 3 walls Biscuit Crunch and the main wall Chocolate Dream.
We brought a nice big corner sofa (which I've always wanted) and a brown carpet (before it was terracotta and showed up every single mark)
ignore the circles there from the camera
We have still got our old cream curtains, but I'm thinking about buying some brown ones
And I have a nice big picture to go up on this wall still. Waiting for my dad to do it for us as if I let my husband do it we'll end up going through to next doors house! LOL
