Well, I've been busy painting my living room! I'd been thinking of doing it for months, but couldn't bring myself to go through the hassle of actually doing it. I was lying in bed on Saturday morning and I suddenly decided that the time had come! Off I went to Homebase, bought a pot of paint and got to work!
I am loving it! It is a Crown Naturals colour called Snowdrop, and looks so light and bright! My living room doesn't get a lot of light (you may have read me whinging about my dingy flat in the past!) so this light colour really brightens it. It was a light beigey colour before - which did look nice, and I did like it, but this is just lovely! And it was time for a change, as I last painted it 5 and 1/2 years ago when I moved in.
I've still got one more coat to go on one wall - the most fiddley wall which has the window and the radiator on - lots of awkward places to try to paint around. Typically I had painted that one wall a bit of a darker colour last time, so it needs three coats. It would be the tricky wall that needs an extra coat - delightful!
I also had a family meal yesterday, to celebrate my brother's 30th birthday, which was lovely. He is a big fan of sweets, so I made him this as an extra present:
I filled the bowl with blue shredded tissue paper and sweets. I made the letters out of card and stuck them onto acetate, so that they were bobbing about above the bowl.
A bit more crochet has been done on the cowl and the baby blanket - but I will save that for another post!
Bye for now...
