The decorator is coming this afternoon to price the job of decorating.  He isn't going to actually do anything until all the furniture has been fitted but it has turned my mind to what I want on the walls.  I don't want to close the room in too much but I love the big patterns that are in vogue and I bet I can get a lovely blue/brown one.  A quick search on google found me the pictures below but I could go much plainer as a base and then have 'scrap walls' and decorate them myself over time.  Hmm.... I like that idea.

Computer drawings

These are the computer generated drawings of how the cupboards will look.  The flooring won't be quite like this or the wallpaper.  I want to end up with a blue and brown theme so the handles on the drawers may be a bit different.  I love the idea of the paper shelving :)

YUK! My craft room with no clothes on!

It's a small room.  There are two windows.  I have a mountain of stuff to store in here when all the cupboards are in..... I think I will have to try and find hidey-holes for some of it around the house - I'm sure it won't all fit in!

A New Start

My name is Carol and I am from the West Midlands in the UK.  I live at home with my husband and an African Grey parrot.  I am a grandma.  I love to craft but have outgrown my dated, converted office so have just completely stripped it ready for new units and worktop.  Can't wait to get it finished but it will take some time yet.
Hope you can follow me on my journey and help me to make the choices as I go along.
