Hello My Lovelies…
Here’s another DIY post for you to feast your eyes on! (There will be a few of these as we have done a lot of work on the house over the past couple of weeks)
There wasn’t anything wrong with our living room in the first place, except the carpet. Having two dogs and 4 cats had taken a toll on the cream carpet, toilet training two dogs (especially Bella) is a bit of a nightmare at the best of times and with cream carpet, it’s just so much worse. But on the whole, the room was okay – a bit bland and not really what we wanted.
Here’s what it looked like before:
We started off with some new laminate flooring…
And then we painted the walls not wallpapered, we went with Natural Hessian Dulux paint and added a rug (from Amazon) and some finishing touches, including a 26 photo frame design and some Alice in Wonderland cushions, also from Amazon.
All but two of the photo frames have images of the animals in, but I wanted the two largest frames to have quotes in. It took a day or two to get the right ones, but I eventually settled on a Dr. Suess quote (his quotes are actually littered throughout the house) and a Winnie the Pooh quote….
Here is the totally finished room with finishing touches (and just because I like these photos of the room…)
And that my beauties is how our cosy living room came to be… it’s such a pretty room to be in and is so easy to clean when the dogs drag half the garden into the room when they come in. Mr T worked super hard on this room doing the floor and painting, and his hardwork really paid off!
Keep an eye out for my next post… it wont be so long this time!
Until next time my wonderful people…
