Home decorating for the financially challenged
My chair went well but made the sofa look lame, so now it is the cushions! Gosh, cushions are actually quite hard, getting that piping straight without a commercial machine
turns out to be no mean feat. My mother knew more than I thought. However, perseverance and oodles of free time a fabulous pink extravaganza will build. Plus, had a brainwave while I was driving up to Foxton, (where the pink palace is located). The original
vile curtains which resembled some unmentionable thing in a baby’s nappy have long been ripped down and consigned to the cupboard but those bare windows seemed bit chilly and spartan in light of the pinkness, so I thought of turning them around, using
the lining as the actual curtain facing out. Folded the tape over and hey presto, new white curtains. Not exactly high designer chic but better than the chopped liver horror that was there before. And free. My mother and my mother-in-law would be proud
Here’s some photos, what a skite I am.
