I did however manage to finish Afton's bedroom. You may recall (if you can think that far back) that I finished redecorating my eldest daughter's bedroom. Well Afton's was the biggie as it required gutting out the entire room, insulating and re-lining the walls. I added some picture rail at the top to break up the room as the ceilings are quite high. Here are the before and afters..
An ugly eighties mirrored wardrobe used to run along this wall next to the door
Believe it or not this house was lined with straw when it was first built just after WWII.
Affy sits here every afternoon. She absolutely loves it :)
I still had this memo board that I made from last year which happened to have the exact colours that matched the room.
I must have the shakes lately because every shot I've taken is blurry.
We have a horrendous mosquito problem where we live so I've had to put up these huge nets to stop them getting in.
Afton is obsessed with Monster High dolls so I turned these shelves into an extra dollhouse to accommodate them.
The rattan mirror used to be poo brown. Rather than buy a new one I painted it white.
Her doll house is looking a little shabby now, but she still loves it.
So as you can see, even though there's only 20 months between my two girls they are chalk and cheese! Here's another pic of Jariah's room...
NOW we're finally ready for the kitchen! Mr T completely gutted it on the weekend so hopefully within the next couple of months we'll have a brand new one. :)
