Progress :)

It's always nice to take pictures and see how things have progressed .............


I was lucky enough to find a full roll of wallpaper with a similar texture to the original wallpaper but with an added lilac box shape here and there on it, it cost £1 from the bargain basket so I wasn't going to complain about the lilac squares. I ended up using the whole roll! and this is how it looks after 3 coats of vinyl silk paint. I used half and half PVA + water rather than wallpaper pastei


you can still see some of the lower squares, but these will be behind the seating area.


after the cushions and curtains are in place there wont be much of the walls to see in this area.


to the left, cupboards above cooker / sink unit and this lovey glass shade houses a gas lantern, still working I'm told, but we don't have any of the little mantels that go in it, will have to get some to try it out. Apparently they give off great light and warmth.


This is the back section, all painted, just the cupboard door to go back on now then it will be the seats and curtains :)
Here is a sneaky peek at some beautiful vintage fabric curtains I sourced on eBay


and
some furnishing fabric I bought on eBay about 2 years ago which I just loved and hadn't a clue what I was going to use it for!


I just love the white blossom flowers.
