We moved into our new house in March this year and have made slow progress turning it into a home. We made a few big changes initially, such as replacing the windows, flooring the loft, fitting wardrobes and fumigating the mice.
Everything else we have done to the house has been purely decorative – hanging a picture here, a photo there and scattering a few cushions. Let’s just say, it will definitely be an ongoing project!
We seem to spend a lot of time in our kitchen, which we do hope to completely remodel at some point in the future as at the moment it is just white walls, uneven laminate flooring, minimal storage space and this rather large mantel.
I’ve managed to hide most of the mantel from view by pushing our dining table right up against it, but there is still a lot of white wall space to cover to make the room feel more lived in.
This is when I had the genuis idea to put good use to all of our son’s gorgeous artwork, lovingly painted at nursery and proudly presented to me at the end of each week. I think you will agree that he is rather talented.
As you can see, the Gallery is very much a work in progress too, but I will add new pieces of art to the wall every week and watch the collection grow as his talent does.
I’ll take new photos and post them to my facebook page so you can see how the project is coming along.
So, we are one wall down. Next up to tackle is a loooooong hallway and a childsized bathroom.
