Time to decorate......

We have lived in this house for three years in August....We decorated right through when we moved in but haven't since.....Everywhere is looking a bit worn so we're planning on decorating...

My favourite colour is purple and of course I wanted purple wallpaper around the fireplace......Stu said no but it didn't take me long to convince him I knew best....hehehe

I found this one in Wilkinsons.....Arthouse Opera Blown Vinyl Anouska Berry Wallpaper....Fancy sounding but it looks lovely!! It's a bit on the pricey side at £9.97 a roll but we'll only need a couple of rolls as it's just going around the fireplace....

Stu will be putting it up....He says he knows how to wallpaper....How hard can it be he said.....lol

At the moment we have cream curtains.....I'm planning on saving a bit of money and dying them purple....Well intense Violet to be exact.....I have previously used the DYLON Fabric Dyes before so I know what I'm doing and even if it doesn't work or goes too dark I've only wasted £10...Two packs to do two sets of curtains.....On the other hand if it does work I have saved at least £60 for new curtains....

We have 10 cushions five cream which can stay and five brown which won't go with the purple.....So on eBay I've found some cushion covers for £2 each with free postage....A lot cheaper than buying brand new cushions as there is nothing wrong with the one's we have....They're just the wrong colour....

Thankfully we have a cream leather sofa which will go with anything.....

Then the last thing I want to buy is some things for the walls.....I want to stick with the purple theme......

I am fancying this canvas from Poundstretcher. 60cm x 60cm and only £6.99 which I think is so cheap....What a bargain....

I also want to put some more pictures of the girls and our family up on the walls....I'm fancying a frame like this...I just have to hunt one down at a reasonable price....
  So what do you think? A couple of my friends have reds and I wanted something different....Even Stu is liking my plans now.....The bathroom will be next....hehehe

  3. We're just redecorating at the moment! I'm leaning towards a mustardy yellow for the living room, but it may stay pink!
