How was your weekend?
Here in the UK it was reported to be the hottest weekend of the year so far, I don't do well in the heat and spent the weekend inside in my north facing craft room and kitchen trying to keep cool!
Hearing that it was going to be a scorcher of a weekend I decided to decorate my craft room as I knew I wouldn't want to be out in the heat for long.
The first project was my large white cupboard, very useful for storage but very uninspiring to look at.
I've been collecting wallpaper samples for a couple of years now, originally I was going to paste them onto the wardrobe in our bedroom, but then we inherited different furniture. Instead I thought they'd look colourful on these doors. I made the decision to do random placement, which is really hard for me to do as I am a bit obsessed with symmetry to put it mildly! It took a lot longer than I anticipated but I eventually finished it Sunday morning. There are a couple of bits I'm not mad about but I'm sure I'll get used to it!
The frame will eventually be painted with Cooking Apple Green paint. I also painted one wall with Green Ground. I've decided to do one wall at a time in here.
I wasn't sure about going with a darker colour as we had white before and it is a dark room, but so far I'm really pleased with it. The small door will be (hopefully) papered with left over wallpaper from our bedroom and the radiator cover will be painted in my favourite green for woodwork, Calke Green.
Have a great week!
