Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
continuing on with my furniture painting:
(some of you may have seen some of these before)
the first five are from my previous home......which had much bigger rooms
a new mirror, the box along the base has a lift up lid and that's where I stashed all my hairclips, scrunchies and combs
and one of a pair of new bedside chests. The pink and green chest on the left is the second thing I ever painted. Can you see the gold trim?
these are my curtains, heavy cotton, thermal blockout lined, bought for huge, 16 feet wide, floor to ceiling windows when I lived near the beach. when I moved to my previous home I had enough to put on all the smaller windows. I love the colours and still have the curtains although they are much faded from many washings and one section is now my tablecloth.
here is how I painted my furniture, in colours to tone in with those curtains. The miniature chest is the first piece I ever painted, followed by the bigger, small chest in a previous photo. The blue trim you see on the tallboy is actually a green/blue, but always shows blue in photos. If you look closely, you'll see gold trim on these pieces also.
moving into my current home:
this is my bedroom, with everything crammed into one end. I'm standing in the doorway to the bathroom, to my left is the door to the back porch, to my right is the door to the lounge room; three walls, three doorways, which makes just over a metre width unsuitable for furniture placement.
Here is that small pink and green chest, right next to the doorway leading to the back porch. You'll notice I no longer have the red/blue/green/yellow curtains here, they've been replaced by this aqua-backed black lace.
I found this cute little Llama in the Reject Shop for only $7, and just had to buy him
because his colours match my room so well
and he's a moneybox. Empty of course
this amber glass lightshade is what throws the golden tint over my room
here we see Yorick with his Easter Bunny ears from last month, he is currently wearing a Fedora, Raymond Reddington style
