oops!

We popped into the kitchen last night to check the seam strength on the wallpaper to see if we could do a temporary paint job over it...


Oops!

Guess that answers that question ,but not the question of what on  earth is the definition of comfortable to a cat?!!

nearly done...

Well this project has jumped ahead...

 

and now looks like this:   



 
and this...


 and this.


 
I still need to paint the door and window with  gloss white and think of a temporary fix for the hideous sink until we can justify replacing it but its basically done and for now that's enough:)

I also whipped up the artwork ,

 

70 cents worth of frames from the salvation army store , an old line drawing of mine and some scrabble tiles I found on the garage floor of our old house.My kind of price!
Now Im looking at the kitchen and my nearly full free bucket of paint that's left over with a thoughtful look on my face,the family are nervous:).
Night all...

finally I get to blog again....

Well the school holidays are over and I get some me time again.I have been picking away at things and have a few things to post...

Ive been getting the parlor sorted and making an office space  in there.I'm still looking for a desk I like so its a clever arrangement of cupboard doors and bar stools for now.I also added a pin board and storage boxes I made out of junk from around the house and make a removable cover for Sean's lamp (don't worry brother dearest it is unharmed:)

I'm loving my pot-plant/noxious weed in the fire place...pity it is so invasive in the garden.
 

Ive also redone a few pictures with retro images I have printed out . It started when I loved these on blogland and didn't want to pay for one...

I just glued on the image to the backing board of an old picture and glazed it with diluted p.v.a. glue.

I liked it so much I made this one too...

 

I have two others but my batteries died however I managed to get a beforeish shot of the next house project...

I have used up mismatched but texturally similar wallpapers to give a smooth painting surface and I hope to get onto the painting soon.Stay tuned..
