For a Friday, it’s always good to be a bit random. So here’s my random post of the week.
I figured I’d start off with a random picture of a cat in glasses to buffer any negativity.
Did it work?
Good, on to the stuff that’s not so great…
The Bad News: There is still one last thing I need to do on the chest of drawers before I can share them but that probably won’t happen until the weekend because I need Wayne’s assistance and he doesn’t want to do it until the weekend not that I’m blaming anyone but it’s his fault but I promise next week I’ll TOTALLY be giving you the full reveal!
The Decorating Fail: I wanted to share my decorating fail with you because I’m keen to show the pros and cons of decorating my your own home and I’m nothing if not honest.
I actually went out and purchased two mirrors like this from John Lewis (the bigger one in the photo):
Because I was hoping for a little bit of this action…
Alas, I tried to use these gorgeous mirrors in EVERY CONCEIVABLE CONFIGURATION and it was a big fat decorating fail. *sad face*. They are absolutely stunning in person (and heavy), they were just too small so the scale was all wrong (again) and the dark antiqued brass got a bit lost on the wall. And at £80 for the two of them, I can’t really afford to keep them just because they are so damn sweet. So they’re going back. Sometimes, ya just gotta let go, eh? Maybe if I find something affordable that will work in the future, I’ll do it but for now, I think I want to get a new big crazy beautiful fox glass mirror above the chest of drawers instead or maybe a big crazy beautiful oil painting. The search continues…
The Good News: I was featured in a couple of very cool places recently so I thought I’d let you know. They clearly don’t realise yet that I have no clue what I’m doing so please don’t tell them, okay?
Also, Dotcomgiftshop.co.uk featured my blog in their 20 Fabulous Home Decor Blogs which I thought was pretty sweet, considering the other amazing bloggers they included. If you want to find some new UK blogs, take a look at their list. I’m in really excellent company.So a big shout out to both of them for featuring little ol’ me! It’s much appreciated!
So do you have any good news/bad news/decorating fails you want to share? I’m all ears :) Happy weekend!
