Makeover


I wanted to show you my "before"photo but this new(ish) way of uploading photo on blogger totally frustrates me and I have given up trying to load the other photo. The one above is the finish of my mini makeover in the laundry this afternoon. Since we moved in two years ago I have hated the holes in the wall left by the dryer fixed to said wall and the super ugly white storage cupboard in the corner. Two years was also a long time to pine for my beautiful blue/green painted storage chest which had sat in the garage all that time. Today I swapped ugly for beautiful and covered the offending bit of wall with a patchwork of wrapping paper, cards and the odd doily. I also get shelves for bits and bobs and to store my jams and chutneys. Blissfully happy.
