Those of you who said wallpapering the other day were perfectly right of course!!
Oooh look I've just spotted Ginger the cat sat on the table in the background, he knows he's not allowed on there, naughty puss I have the evidence now.
Yesterday's post about my Perfect Life interrupted the flow a bit but I did get on with the papering when I said I would. I dug out my wallpapering accessories, they may look new but they have been in action in three different houses and are my tried and trusted decorating aids, everything I need along with a damp cloth and my well used paste table.
I had bought three rolls of wallpaper when our local Homebase in Reading shut down suddenly, they were selling off all the wallpapers at just £1 a roll, how could I resist. I picked three that I like best, all different but I had very definite ideas in mind. I have been collecting wallpaper samples for ages and these would boost the amount I had as well as being used in specific areas of the house first.
This one was destined for the hall, just to add a splash of colour and pattern in what is our very white house. Just three strips hung here and two in a little area on the landing as you come down the return of the stairs and we have enough colour and pattern to satisfy my eye. The good thing that is with a single roll of wallpaper we can completely change the look whenever we feel the urge.
For now though I am very happy with the result and with a couple of our little wooden treasures, a stone off the beach collected on a lovely doggy walk and a beautiful little shell the look is complete.
A little bit of colour delights the soul.
