Spring cleaning already!

My Spring cleaning has continued in earnest this week, this time with the hallway. When we moved in 7 years ago there was a cream carpet down in the hall, and its still there after 3 kids and 2 cats - so you can imagine the state of it! So I'm pleased to say that today's the day it goes - laminate in its place.

I've painted the walls white - they were cream, but the white has made a huge difference and made it really bright and clean looking.

I really wanted a feature wall opposite the door, and spotted this lovely yellow floral wallpaper called Hydrangea in Laura Ashley. 

So that's gone up, and I've refurbished an old pine blanket box by painting it with Annie Sloan chalk paint, and making a cushion using fabric from the same Laura Ashley range, but with a stripe - Eaton Stripe.

Here it is all finished - take it from me it's a huge transformation! I just need a new doormat, and maybe a runner?

  1. Thanks for your kind comment. The quilting didn't really take very long and I was really surprised at how quickly it all came together . Great work on your hallway. Love your choice of paper and fabric.
