bedroom makeover...not quite finished!

It's taken me days of my holiday...days I tell you, to paint my bedroom and install the gallery wall.  Nothing, but nothing went easily...including the great gloss enamel  'fall down and splatter the floor and one of my new shoes' paint debacle!  And the blunted drill bits when putting up the picture ledges into the brick wall...sigh. Still, it's almost there.
I'll do a full before and after post when I get back from Taswegia (I'll be on a plane just about now!) but thought I'd give you a bit of a glimpse from the doorway just to tide you over...hope you like it...Buffy seems to 
And yes Mary, that empty shelf will be filled before you know it!

  1. It's gorgeous Kerry. I love that you have (usually very feminine) toile teamed with some more bold and dramatic elements.

  2. Won't it be interesting to cone back and see it with new eyes - almost as if someone else did it for you!

  3. Can't wait to see more Kerry. Tricia's right, you'll come back home and see it with new eyes and appreciate all your hard work even more. xx

  4. I love it, nice job. I love the dark wall with your white headboard in front of it.

  5. Please Kerry can we have some more? Have fun in Taswegia...he hee

  6. Mary here: It looks great Kerry. That nook looks like a great place to relax and read in. And I know from experience how comfy that chair is. And I have to tell you, I love seeing book shelves filled with books rather than just a few books and then decor pieces. Hope you have a great holiday. xx

  7. Wow Kerry it looks great! I love it all and I can't wait to see more. Have a lovely time away! xx

  8. It is looking great, Kerry. I love the little sitting room. No wonder you read so have the perfect space!

    Have a safe and enjoyable trip!


  9. I can't wait to see the finished bedroom. It looks beautiful so far!

  10. Wow, very nice Kerry!

  11. What a wonderful room and such a cozy it!!

  12. It looks great! And to think that you got a matching shoe (though only one of them..) is fab! :)

    Buffy seems most content there.. loving the new view and embience!

    I love it Kerry!! Well done!

  13. I'm loving that black wall! I can't wait to see the whole thing :-)

  14. Oh it is looking ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!! I love the colours that you've chosen! ;) Hazel

  15. Kerry - it's gorgeous! Love how the sleeping area is dark and cocoon-like, and then it opens up into this fabulous, white and sunny spot. It just make syou long to climb into that bed at night, and get out of it in the morning. Really great! Pinning - x

  16. Love what you have done, wish you lived near by
    to come do the same to my house.


I love it when you comment...I feel excited, chuffed and tranquil all at the same time! Thank you.
