Loungeroom finished

Our loungeroom is all done now, its so nice and cozy. The walls were light green, now they are cream and the difference really is amazing, its much brighter and the room looks so different. Here is the cabinet I painted and we also painted around the fire in a colour called vanilla, its a few shades darker than the cream.



This is a before shot....




And here is the after shot, we got a new mirror, it makes the mantle piece look bigger as well.







Of course it wouldn't look complete without a quilt or two, this little one hangs on the wall.


Next is the kitchen, we are having it all replastered in 2 weeks. My husband will be busy ripping out cupboards, Thank goodness I'll be at work while all that is happening.

I'll be sure to share plenty of photos.


I have been sewing this week and I can't wait to show you my progress, last night my iron broke down so I couldn't press my blocks so I had to stop sewing. I really should have a spare.


Have a great week and I hope you find some sewing time.

My word Leanne - it's amazing what a change of colour will do to a room. I really like that pop of red with the cushions. Your quilt is a perfect choice. Is that glamazon in the mirror you? Ann:-)

Your lounge looks fab Leanne I only have two colour schemes for the walls in my flat white or cream. You can then just change your bits and bobs to add splashes of colour. xx

Well done you - little changes make a big difference. Mind you small changes still take lots of time - this from someone who has spent all day painting the toilet - and it's still not finished!

Do love your new title picture, great color choices for the quilt as usual:)

PS: am closing Quilted Notions and have begun a new blog titled Sew-Happy House - come and see me there:)
