The link is rather tenuous this week but I’ve been busy as you know, and the smell of the paste has gone straight to my cororabaral ceetext.
Spud’s room is done, decorated. I’m rather proud of myself. It went well, apart from one little glitch. You know how I said it would be blue and white…? Look at this photo and tell me if you think this paper is white or not:
Exactly. It is white. It is also the underside. This is the topside, a sort of silvery bronze:
NEXT apparently roll their papers with the underside out and the topside in; but they didn’t bother telling me. I tell you, I was this close to pasting that £140 roll of wall paper on the patterned side, but the Hub slapped me around with the paste brush until I saw sense. Instead, Spud now has a feature wall.
You should have seen my earlier post by now, with all the photos of Spud’s room. I had intended to insert them into this post but I can’t find the gallery feature in WordPress and it takes so long to arrange them between the text that I could have decorated another room in the time I spend fiddling. I will have more photos for you once the room is properly arranged.
My decorating skills are not great, coming as they do with an attitude of slap it on and stick it up, but my spirit makes up in willingness what it lacks in ability. The point is, Spud loves his new room. And that’s what it’s all about.
