Silly & Serious in Sweden

Silly & Serious in Sweden

Why a blog?

Why not? I know I like reading about other people's ideas and thoughts - whether silly or serious - and also video blogs - aka VLOGS - on YouTube and such. I'm not going to do anything super fabulous here - merely keep a diary of sorts, show you my favorite links, what makes me laugh or what makes me know - the usual stuff. I hope you will enjoy! AND I hope you feel like jumping in an commenting on occasion!

What's happened since last update?

The bedroom is coming along nicely if I may say so. We can only do a little every day since we're feeling kinda scruffy ... but spring is here so it's nice to get the bedroom organized and fixed up.

Headboard for the bed!

I became ill and our home improvement of the bedroom came to a screeching halt. Now I'm doing a little better and today we dressed up the headboard and attached it just inside the window. We also made the bed with the brand new bed spread and I'm SO pleased regarding the color choices I made. smiley

More to follow as we move along through this project, in case you're curious!

Oh boy - I swear muscles I didn't even know exist ache like there's no tomorrow. I have been working hard in the bedroom all day, wallpapering. I have a bit if an unorthodox idea regarding the design, and I thought I'd keep anyone reading this blog posted on the progress. I am an HGTV addict (when I visit the US) and I hope I have picked up some design-sense (or design-madness!!!) from the home makeovers there. smiley

Here is the wall before we did anything.

And here is the wallpaper that's going up.

And here's how it looks now!

And then there was the other wallpaper - that looks like snake skin...yup--no kidding½

And up on the the backsplash, sort of, inside a shelf.

So - about a third of the work done - so more to come. I promise there's a method to my madness!!! :-)
