Slow Decorating Movement

Tuesday, 21 May 2013

I was reading a nice little blog the other day, two+two, that I've just discovered (and Jen is from St Albans, isn't it a small world!) and there was this funny post on there about starting a slow decorating movement... When I read it I thought, yes, that's so true... As much as I love pouring over the internet finding inspirational images of amazing homes that were gutted and resdeigned from scratch, for most of us turning our houses into our dream homes is an slow, ongoing project, but so worth it if we can stick with it! I've been meaning to post for ages that we finally finished our kitchen recently, after waiting for over 6 years to get around to it, and then it actually taking about 4 months to do when we finally did get around to it (thanks to my lovely husband who worked very hard doing the whole project himself).  I'm so pleased with how it turned out... there's still a few things to do like putting plates and prints up on the wall and working out where things might live permanently (I love my bread maker but slap bang in the middle of my worktop, I'm not so sure!).  

The next project is fixing up the lovely 1960s Ercol dining chairs I bought from Ebay which I promised my husband would look fab once brought back to life a bit... all in good time! So here's to the slow decorating movement, because good things come to those who wait!

*washing up left out to dry on the draining board optional in your dream kitchen, that's just the way we roll round here! :)
