The results of my handiwork!

Have you missed me? I hope so.
I've been ultra busy and ultra tired after spending nearly a week re-decorating my living room.
I thought I'd share a couple of before and after pics..... so you can see I've been AWOL for a good reason.
My son Paul, aided by my grandson Adam, stripped the walls for me and Paul emulsioned the ceiling.
Then it was all down to me. The wallpaper hanging, the painting and the setting the room to rights again.
I'm really quite pleased with the result.

BEFORE

  
My son and grandson (and Harvey)


My son Paul, acting daft


 AFTER

(The Sky channel showing on the TV isn't what you think)! LOL





The horrible suite is going in two weeks when our beautiful new leather suite arrives. I can't WAIT!!!

Hi Vivienne, I do hope you are going to take it easy for a bit now, you must be exhausted, I know I was after decorating my bedroom a couple of months ago. Take care of yourself love.
Your room looks stunning, love the colour scheme, and i see youve got a wii board as well. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx
