Yellow 'Pop' Mirror

Home Decorating:

Spring must be on its way - we had a mid-week public holiday this week and instead of relaxing I spent the day reorganising my home!

In the process of this I found this mirror I had been given a few years back. It had the old shabby chic paint job and I figured it could do with a bit of an update.

I simply gave the mirror a light paint with a sample pot of Dulux 'Happy' - gosh I love the name! And it really makes me happy just looking at it.

It now sits on top of the old cupboard in my dining room, which used to be the toy cupboard in Thom's room. 

Happy decorating!

An Uncomplicated Makeover for a Hallway

Home Decorating:

In some of my previous posts, Tips for Updating a Room Using Paint and Shelving Ideas for a Small Corner for Storage and Display, I have shown how anyone can easily update their home using paint!

I have also been able to transform the hallway in my house the same way. Before the changes, it was quite dark and dated, and it looked small. So I painted the whole thing, changed the lights, ripped up the carpet (I was very lucky that there were lovely floorboards underneath - in the condition that you see them!), and put up two very simple canvases that were both painted by my daughter. If I'd added anything else to the walls, it would have only started to make the space look small again.

Here are the 'before' and 'after' photos!

Happy painting!
