After a crazy busy week of helping out with fashion shows and having my parents to stay, things are finally getting back to the regular routine. I had an unexpected day off work yesterday as I had a sick child at home with me, which meant I had the chance to start painting my new cupboard that my dad built for me. This is very much a work in progress, but this gives an idea of the finish I am going for. I had a fabric curtain there before, and my washing machine is in this recess. I love these doors so much, which are made from old pallets, I’m painting each plank a slightly different colour for a mismatched look, which is a great way of using up some of my sample paint tins! I’ve got some beautiful glass handles which I will be putting on the doors for a bit of a contrast in texture – smooth glass and rustic wood.
I’ve now also got a cute little cupboard to hide my gas and electric meters, skirting boards, and my front garden is in mid prep for planting – all very exciting!
