One of my New Years Resolutions was to start to decorate my house to turn it from the neutral new build that it currently is into a lovely home for my family.
My taste seems to have changed so much since I had the kids and I’ve gone from wanting everything matching and perfect to wanting a much more relaxed shabby chic style.
I’m so pleased that the lovely Jen from the Madhouse popped round the other night because she completely gets what style I’m going for and has given me some great ideas. I had tried to explain what I wanted to Mr Frugal and he just didn’t get it. I ended up googling ‘shabby chic’ and presenting the results from Wikipedia to him and although he still doesn’t really get it, he’s happy to let me get on with it.
You might remember me tweeting about my sideboard bargain. It was going to be my first makeover project but when we went to pick it up, the lady had got the measurements wrong and it was too big to fit in our car. I didn’t want to fork out to hire a van for it so I can’t have it now (*stamps feet*) and I’m really dissappointed as I was so looking forward to getting started.
Look, it would have looked lovely when I’d finished sanding and painting it….
So now I’m on the look out for a new project and I suppose it would probably be better if I started off a bit smaller although knowing me and my grand ideas, I’ll probably end up with a mammoth project that will take me a year to complete!
I’ll keep you updated….
