With the tiniest glimpse of our guest bedroom nearing completion, we can’t help ourselves and are already thinking ahead to the finishing touches of our room makeover. There are still a lot of little jobs to finish, but for the first time there’s an end in sight!
You may have already seen that we’ve already hung a few picture frames in the bedroom, but currently most of them are empty. With guests arriving next week, it’s about time that we put the room (including the bed) back together and maybe even have a picture or two in the frames.
I’ve seen some amazing house portraits on Etsy and Folksy, and whilst I’m under no illusion that ours probably shouldn’t even be mentioned in the same sentence as those amazing artworks, I couldn’t resist having a go painting my own.
I actually painted it a few weeks ago, but couldn’t decide if I liked it enough to frame it and let people see it – let alone share it with the rest of the world! But, after a bit of encouragement from Jan, here it is!
We’ve been looking forward to adding a few little more personal things and a painting of our house definitely fits into that category.
It’s not perfect – far from it, but at a distance it’s not too bad. At the end of the day it’s just for us, so I’m sure we’ll cope.
