Thinking today, about how I'd like to decorate our spare room/study walls. I'm not one to leave a wall bare. In fact, I'll often be heard bemoaning the lack of empty wall space in this house. It's a bit limiting creatively.
So I've had this lovely freshly painted bare-walled room to play with for some time now. The reason for the delay in rectifying the "bareness" is that I wasn't sure how long I would have that particular room. Ever since C left home, Z has expressed an interest in moving into C's old room. However, she has hesitated about making that move, mainly because C's room is at the front of the house and quite exposed to the street. We finally agreed to have holland blinds installed in all three front bedrooms to give all the kids more privacy (and more light) without them having to close their heavy curtains. The blinds are due to be installed on Tuesday and then hopefully Z will make her decision and I will have a new room to decorate.
I already have plenty of raw material to work with and just need to purchase a few frames - probably from the op-shop as I've done in the past.
Still unsure if I'll just use a couple of pictures, or cover a whole wall as I've done in our laundry:
I've also contemplated framing some of my childhood swapcards for a nostalgic touch.
These two and the one below were always my favourites.
I purchased this book from the op-shop with the intention of cutting it up and framing some of the pictures.
