DISTRESSED ..........


I've been tarting up our bedrooms  .....


This is an original Victorian built in cupboard in one of our spare bedrooms. Back in the eighties, we stripped it and there it stayed but, as something to do in this pandemic, I decided to paint it and distress it ..... the door is a bit warped but that adds to it's charm { that's my excuse ! } One can hide a multitude of sins if you adopt the distressed look 😃


I do like that distressed look ..... I know some of you will think I'm mad but I really like that old, weathered look .....


..... I distressed the fireplace as well ..... Apollo watches over it !




I'll show you the other bedrooms soon ..... they really all could do with being painted again but this will do for the time being !
Also, I bought all new bedding for all of our four bedrooms ..... duvets, mattress and pillow protectors, and new pillows ..... it's something that never enters my head to buy ..... so, now its all nice and new for when people stay ..... how often do you buy new bedding ?

Has this situation that we all find ourselves in motivated you ?
