Get back on topic Angela, you've wandered off on a tangent. The point of this post is to chat a bit about the transformation of my living. Yes it's taken a while but I love being in this space in my home.
Here it is on the day i picked up my keys. Whilst it was decorated neatly and by no means offensively it wasn't really what I wanted.
It pretty much looks like this now .... except the bookcase is full of books ;)
I'm looking forward to working on my bedroom next, I have lots of plans just need to start saving the money to get it all done :)
