I love old iron beds

Monday, May 05, 2008

Two of my favourite things, this soft colour of blue and something that looks aged and well loved.... This is my tiny bedroom... I like this section but the rest I really don't like yet so I wont show you photos till I do... It was a long weekend here so I actually painted my tiny little hallway. It has a slopping roof that is timber and one wall that is timber and the 3 other walls I have painted chalk USA... This section of the house is so hard to photograph as it is so dark but when I work out how to decorate it I will show you some photos... The wooden walls drive me mad but my hubby doesn't want me to paint them so I am trying to keep the peace.... I think I am going to cover one section with a huge mirror but not sure yet... I was going to put the book shelves in but when we started, it didn't look right... So many decisions to be made!!!!!!!!!

    Nice blog , I am really curious of what country you´re in? I looked around for some clues, but couldn´t find anything. But by looking at your picture I´d guess american or maybe australian? :-)
