The thing I find about renovating is that you hit a point where you just can't be bothered finishing all the 'bits n pieces'. All of sudden it's 4 years on and you still have no internal doors other than your bathroom!
This came to a head for us this week with the a/c in our bedroom escaping. I had a few metres of calico left over from my dining room chair revamp so tacked it into the top of the door surround and voila.
By day it's neatly tied back with a black leather tie and by night it's a wrinkled calico door.
The stencil came with 4 designs, 3 of which i used. I'm not overly fussed on the one second from the bottom but laziness prevents me from doing anything about it, it's ok for now.
I'd pulled out two of the original suite chairs and replaced them with bentwoods to break up the bulk of the dark timber but they were a bit uncomfortable. So when i happened across a few of these chairs below in Paddington prior to christmas, i'd found their replacement ...
And this is the suite as it currently stands
Our home isn't all one era nor do things 'match' per se, (as this suite bears witness). I go through stages as i'm sure everyone does and like to change things around. The calico has exceeded my expectations with the stenciling and there will be no regrets when i decide to pull it off and replace it with something else.
Two birds - One stone. Brings me down to, ummm 15 more to-do's...
