What a day. I have eaten, cooked, cleaned, eaten some more, read blogs, eaten, taken some photos and eaten. It's freaking cold here today! What else is a girl to do but eat??! I made fresh chocolate walnut brownies so it is to be expected.
I re-fashioned my blog. Nothing too noticable, and I need a new header, but the old layout was dastardly boring. I was boring myself. I can't imagine why anyone would waste their time with my boring page. Must be my wit and wonderful sense of humour.
Anyway, I need your help people! I need to pick your brains for ideas.
I found these old couches in a room on the haunted upstairs floor of my work and thought they'd be great for the kids rooms. They're just the right size and the springs are still in perfect condition. But look at them.
As you can see, someone had clearly put a lot of hard work and tender loving care giving them a new lease of life. Unfortunately it's not quite the look I'm going for. I stripped them back to reveal their original glory.
A furniture doer-uperer's delight? I do like the buttons, they were a surprise! I'll keep them if I can to give a bit more character.
Here's where you come in. Ryleah's is all sorted - she wants hers covered in a similar style patchwork to this.
But what to do in a 12 year old boys room? I want it to look cool, but not in a stereo-typical boys room way. No skateboard material please. His room isn't finished yet, but we're going for industrial, sort of.
Do I stick with a plain, dark colour and add lots of ace cushions? Or go with a bolder colour? Or a print of some sort, like a Union Jack? I do like Union Jacks.
Brrrr, did I mention how cold it is today? Is it cold where you are too, or just here in Ballarat?
