The Bedroom.....

A VERY picture heavy post......
A new room isn't a new room without the help of some very nice swedish people....DH isn't swedish, the flatpack is......
He's gonna get this thing built, and doesn't require any help!!
He is very serious about this and tackles it from the inside!
My lovely curtains, courtesy of Mr John Lewis. They are called Magic Trees which I think is lovely, they are very serene and the calming colours are perfect (especially as they were purchased over t'internets).
My fab, gorgeous wardrobes!!! Love 'em...absolutely perfect, couldn't have asked for better! I can finally open my doors wide and peruse what I would like to wear from my clothers, I have never been able to do that before.
My lovely chest of drawers purchased unseen from Ebay. The seller is local, and delivered them for free and better yet, he stored them for 3 weeks until the carpet went down. His 3 yr old son helped deliver them and we talked about how much chocolate he could eat before he popped whilst his dad and DH carried my purchase upstairs. It wasn't supposed to go in the window, but my measurements were slightly out, though I think it is perfect where it now lives. The mirror is original and is bevelled, and Nick painted it, "stressed" it and waxed it and sold it for a ridiculously good price. I will definitely be going back to him in the future.
Our old bed and bedside drawers polished up with some briwax and looking fab, with bedding from Ikea YYs cat bed is back in place, and she is very happy to be resettled.
The finised article as built by DH, somewhere to house his "collection" including his crows which he has owned for about 12 years, but have been packed away waiting for a home. The baskets are to hide his crap in...keys, wallets etc.....
My lovely curtains.....again!
Once again, the drawers!!
The curtains in their full glory.
YYs bed again.
Crows and Topseys bed.
My beautiful light fitting which was about the 5th one to come home, but it is perfect, worth the search.
And finally, ready for catching up with everyones news.....

This was 14 years in the waiting (as I said previously, a very long story) but absolutely worth the I am planning the rest of the house.

If anyone needs a builder and painter and decorator I can highly recommend one from Burnley.
If anyone needs fab furniture, I can highly recommend a local guy.

Dh and I are both delighted with the results.
