I have lived in this house for 3 months now, and I still don't feel that its anywhere near finished. It is rented, and its all plain and beige. I have been trying for ages to brighten it all up. Beige walls, carpet, sofa & wood all over. When the weather is better I'll be painting some bigger pieces in the garden. I am so messy I get it everywhere, not good in a rented house.
Harris' room is probably the brighest so far, in a beige way! He is nearly 2, and will be getting a new bed for his Birthday. I wanted a white painted pine one, but we are going to go for a red car bed. He will only sleep in our guest double bed at the moment, not his cot. I am hoping the lure of a red racing car will get him in his own room.
I am continually ebaying for some wood chest of drawers so I can paint them white and get rid of the beech veneer argos ones. His wardrobe is in my mum's garage. Its a 40's style deco one, that's knackered. I got it from an auction but haven't got it from Kirkbymoorside to Durham. That's getting painted white as well.
Hope you are surviving the wind!
