First thing I had to do was repaint it as although the lilac was very pretty it wasn't very Christmassy! I chose a nice fir green paint from B and Q and with much trepidation I started! It turned out a bit darker than it looked in the jar but I do think the green suits it. The darker colour shows of its features more I think.
So here it is before its makeover................
And here it is after!!!
The inside needs lots more done I literally just put in everything I already had!
No idea I had so many little things to fill that big shelving unit!
And all my lovely cakes from Small Portions!
Still lots to do in here! I need a coffee table, the sink needs dressed and I need to make a fireplace to surround the aga or there's no where to hang the stockings! I also need to make some paper chains but I remember how long it took me to make though in my old house!!!
The tree is lit up but its hard to see with the flash!
The bedroom is very bare with just a few spare bits I had for now but it needs a new suite! I think I have found the one I like but not 100% yet!! I want a nice bed to show of Debs gorgeous patchwork!
I also had a little play with my Grinch! Bethany got him for me for Xmas last year but I thought he needed a longer coat. I had some nice fleecy red fabric and decided to have a go!
Here he is before!.............
And here he is after in his lovely new hat and coat!
I have to say I am super chuffed at how it turned out as I haven't made any clothes before so I was really pleased with it!
This house has a back entrance perfect for a sneaky Grinch to steal the presents!
