I hope you have all had a fantastic easter. Mine have been spent with sunny days and a lot of work in the garden. It's been lovely and I will share some projects soon, but first something else.
I have unintentionally broken the most important blogging rule of all - I promised to share something that I then forgot. Or, to be honest, I did not forget, but I wanted to snap better pictures and constantly forgot it (since I am in the house only during the weekends, I can not just snap a picture whenever I remember it).
It's now more than a month since I shared the before pictures of our living room, aka "the church", and now - finally - here are the pictures of how it looks today.
(That is not really true, because I have already re-arranged things a bit and I realized I had to share these pictures before they too became old.)
I really did not like this room when we moved in and because of the high ceiling I was not sure how to paint it. For almost a year it looked like an impossible project, but then eventually, we had some profesional help and the room turned out brilliantly.
If you look at the before picture, you can see that we also changed the bannister. The official reason was because we wanted a touch of New England style, but the true reason is that they seemed to be a pain to paint. I am very happy that we did change them though, because not only do they look great, they were also something of the first that we built together for the house (basically Darling building/creating them and me paiting).
Quite a difference, isn't it? And yes, that mirror is huge!
