Redecorating can seem so challenging. In fact once I had a few drinks before painting my kitchen and it ended up a very dubious shade of pink. I have no excuse as my Dad showed me how to paint properly. I used to love helping him and remember spending evenings and weekends getting our new house ready when I was a teenager. He loved sharing his skills and stories and I was always ready to listen and learn.
My husband is not great at DIY at all. Of course, if you get the professionals in it can be a costly enterprise. The ideal is perhaps to have friends who just happen to have the skills you need. We are in a new area so don’t as yet.
Sometimes when redecorating I have gone down the wall sticker route. I remember surprising my step-daughter with a purple bedroom with stars and the like. I got in trouble as I put myself up a ladder when eight months pregnant to get the roof full of stars. I was alone in the house so it was very silly but I use the excuse that I was clearly nesting.
I should start with one room so perhaps will start on the third floor where my son hangs out. He is a cool kid so I think he would be very impressed with New York Wallpaper & Wall Murals | Wallsauce and this could set a great theme for the entire room with me adding American-themed bedding and cushions. He will like it I am sure as his favourite T-shirt depicts New York.
Yes, that’s decided! I will just do one room at a time and see how I get on remembering not to have a tipple before I start!
