The living room is pretty much there, I still need to get some art work and put up a shelf, maybe get a rug and some faux plants but its starting to look pretty damn good! Oh there is so much to think about!
We actually had no plans as to what was next to be attacked by the decorating bandit (my new name, also see Instagram for reference) so it was a little bit of a shock to the system when I was suddenly faced with a new project and a shed load of wall paper to be rid of AGAIN! But we got there in the end, with a little help from Mr TYH’s Mum who with a scraper in hand was a gem! The next day I started painting, I got the first coat done, top to bottom all by myself! Who needs men when you have determination and a dining chair?! #girlpower
I also got my hands on a machine sander as the walls underneath were pretty bumpy and badly filled, there was no wonder the previous owners covered each and EVERY wall in textured wall paper to cover those bad boys up! I think I get my determination from my Mum, she has a few problems that cause her chronic and pretty awful pain, but she never lets that stop her, and for that I admire her. She is a true #bossbabe. But I don’t know where I get my impatience and impulsiveness from…anyone want to own up to that one?!
So that is our progress, I thought I would write this post in conjunction with International Women’s Day (8th of March) and show my little wins as a woman decorating her first house and celebrate other women, and my Dad, bless him, he has had to put up with being outnumbered for 23 years! Although IWD is about women, I wouldn’t be the person I am today without my Mum & Dad, he knows how to bring up a strong woman (and how to live with them!!) so he deserves a bit of celebrating too. BUT this blog post is dedicated to my Mum, who is the ultimate woman in my eyes.
