And now for the results of my husbands labour of love.
I totally ADORE my new room, it looks so much bigger - to me - and feels light and airy and it's exactly what I dreamt of...only better.
I owe a massive thank you to my lovely hubby for all his hard work and for giving me free reign with his wallet.
It's going to be a long post again as I wanted to try to add links to the lovely places I bought my goodies from, and I've tried to show the photos in a similar order to the 'before' ones, going clockwise around the room.
The view from the door way.
The paint is from Ecos Organic Paints I've got White Lily on the wood work and 3 of the walls and Fjord on the back wall. I LOVE that colour so much! The paint is water based, organic and totally solvent free - as used in the Louvre - well if it's good enough for the Mona Lisa....
Behind the door is the new Pax wardrobes from Ikea - I went for 2 single wardrobes rather than one double, with Risdal doors. The doorknobs are off eBay.
The storage boxes are also from Ikea except the wicker ones which are a set from Aldi.
Three drawers on each side of the wardrobes.
Next to the wardrobe we have my lovely oak work tops...oh my goodness I love these too!
We intended to buy them from Ikea but when we went to order them we discovered they take 4 to 6 weeks to arrive so Phil did some research on the Internet and they came from Wood Work Tops.
They were so helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again.
A shout out to Magic Mike for cutting the worktops to size and rounding them off, he was so very generous in giving up his free time ♥
Paper storage unit from Storage4crafts, also extremely helpful people.
I really didn't need the Raskog kitchen trolley but the colour went so well with the paint that I was having it!
The day light lamp on the desk was bought from Optima for £89.32p with free P+P rather than direct from Daylight Company at £144.99p plus £5.99 P+P.
I'm so good at saving Phil money :)
The two wall shelf units are from Shabby Store.
Another store that I will happily buy from again, thank you to James as I think I talked his ears off!
Evie the bunny is a birthday gift from the sweet Miss Dena and will keep Olive the mouse - a gift from an exceptionally lovely lady - very good company. Both were lovingly made by Rachel at Rocky Loves Rosie.
The storage jars with ceramic bird lids are from Live Laugh Love.
As were the Ceramic topped kilner jars.
Another store I could spend a months wages in and the delivery was faster than the speed of light.
The cake stand was another eBay buy and those cute dolly pegs are hand painted by Suzann at Frillyflowers.
Another storage unit from Storage4crafts.
And lastly I have my lovely little light from Sainsburys.
Damn it but they've reduced the price of them now pfftt!
I still have birthday gifts that I haven't put in the room yet and I need to put up a notice board and clean up the Distress re-inkers before I put them back.
Thank you very much for looking and for your patience in my absence, and now on to some candy.
I have a £50 voucher from The Ribbon Girl for one winner chosen at random.
Please note: The vouchers can be redeemed against any of the vast products stocked in the shop, but not against the P&P, which can be anything from £2.50 in the UK up to £5.25 for the USA.
To enter just click on the blue frog, candy will run for 2 weeks.
Thanks for looking
Love 'n' hugs
