I have painted and painted.. like a thousand times ;) I hate ground work and wants everything to go quickly, but I painted all the kitchen parts with one white layer, and it looks better and I don't have to paint several layers of the actual colour, grey-green =)
I also started painting the bathroom parts. Here is the mirror. Like I said I thought it took to much time to sand off the decor, but I think painting it will do. The mirror looks good anyway, I hope the rest will look as good with paint too =)
And I got a tip that I could use wallpaper glue and paint the walls white and put the napkins right at the wall. Tried to glue it to a paper, but it was too hard, I couldn't get rid of the wrinkles in the middle. I used a regular gluestick, that's what I had at home.. but placing it right on the wall like this turned out quite well.
But when I did the same thing to a thin wallpaper it went all bubbly and ugly! =(
I just gave up yesterday and tried fixing the kitchen floor instead. I thought I choose an easy way, I thought of doing tiles at first, but I did that in my last house (Santa's house) so I wanted to try something else and I got this beautiful floor from Anna. (I think it used to be a table cloth) =) It was a bit short on one side and long at the other, so I had to cut it and I thought it was going to fit even do I turned it 90 degrees, but it didn't =( But I didn't have any more so I glued it on like this, you can see the seam at the right, but since I'm going to place my furniture there I hope it wont show =)
Today I continued to do the wallpapers off the napkins and then I made a new attempt on putting up the wallpaper in the kitchen. I took a new wallpaper, a yellow scrap booking paper and "painted" the glue on to the paper and let it rest a bit and then I put it up to the wall, and it was so much better then yesterday =)
I will cut out the windows when the wallpaper has dried =) And later I will have to make some window frames.
I forgot to show you my strawberry cane before, so here it is. It's far from perfect, but it's so much better than I've ever done before =)
And I'm still working on my carpet =) But I'm the master of unravelling it seems and had to unravel all my work of today =( I most be more careful how I count, I don't want to unravel any more now!!
