Sneak peek – living room makeover

At long last, I’ve begun my living room makeover I planned way back in May. Monday was a glorious Bank Holiday for us here in Ireland, so I spent my day cleaning my apartment, painting, and cleaning up after painting. And I enjoyed it. 

This is what I fancied up a couple months ago for what I wanted our main feature wall to look like {you can check out my original makeover post here}. This entire wall was originally all chalkboard painted, but since our apartment is dark, all that black wasn’t exactly cheer inducing. 
I’m not one to set goals and then let them get dusty, and after 3 months it was getting dusty enough for me.

So above is a snippet of what’s left of our blackboard wall. Much more sophisticated. And a lot brighter. I painted the surrounding wall with Crown Paint‘s ‘Swans a Swimming’, as chosen last October for the rest of our living room. I blogged that too. You can check out here.

For what has happened over the past couple of weeks {lots of unnecessary stress, and none of it wedding related}, I thought the text on the below E Card was quite suiting, so I scrawled it in my fanciest penmanship on the remaining blackboard left above our shelf. I’m going to go on a limb here and assume I’m not the only one feeling like this …

    Hey You, that sneak peak looks good. I wanna see more lol. Ugh as if you don't have enough stress with planning a wedding, someone is trying to add more to your levels. Loved the sentiment.
