New additions to our quirky country home

I have spent these last few months decorating our spare bedroom…things are moving slowly mostly cos of the lack of time. Busy season in SI headquartersūüôā I manage to sneak a moment here and there on the good old net and even a quick trip down to the¬†Homebase this past weekend. This is our spare bedroom progress so far:

new buys

1. I bought these blackout gray blinds¬†in hope to be installed this weekend. They were 50% off of the original price + the 15% off of this past weekend. I needed a 3 awkwardly sized pieces as my bay window is a weird one. Have to cut each one of them! Cost of all together was : A bargain for ¬£43.20! Normally, they would cost over a ¬£100 and more…I felt really happy about myself once I bought them.

2.I will post a picture of the new blinds fitted on my bay window shortly together with the new bedding from Fab. The bed set(duvet x 2 pillow cases) was: £28, on sale again from £34!

3. While in Homebase I couldn’t resits buying this new shower curtain. The old one was soooooo outdated and this new one fits perfectly with our old fashion, slash modern bathroom.¬†Hombase¬†again: ¬£7.99 – 15% = ¬£6.77

I also got a new bed for the spare bedroom too. My friend Al gave it to me. It was wasting time in her garage and its brand new. All I need now is a mattress. I found a few but still thinking… It’s one of those things, hmm do I spend loads of monies on a mattress that nobody will sleep on or not? On average I have people staying at ours …30 days out of 365.

bed painting

Anyway, it was in pine and I have spent last few weekends(yes, that’s correct) weekends painting it in dry/mat white! I was originally thinking of shabby chic but changed my mind and went with cold neutral tones for the hole spare bedroom. So grey, white and a bit of black it is/with a splash of colorful bedding + wall art!

prints sp bed

Lastly: These two amazing prints that hubby bought on his trip to¬†Mexico,¬†last year in November finally got framed. Again, that is another thing “to do” on my list. Put them on the wall. But I guess that is the last thing I will be doing…in this mess of the spare bedroom!

Hope you all had a great weekend and good start to a working week,

Lol, Ines
