The Blue Room project

say hello to one ugly spare bedroom:

{And this is AFTER the tidy-up and re-arrange that I did last week.}

As you can see, the Thomas-the-Tank-Engine-blue theme going on is not working, so for the next few days I will be sneaking around to my parent's house (while they are overseas) and pimping the crap out of this room.

I have a bucket of paint and a credit card, so....

I'm going for a totally neutral greige type wall colour. Mainly because it's what was left over in the bucket.
.... and then I'm simply hoping to make it look fresh and homely and accessorise it a bit. I want it to be something my parents will actually like, so fingers crossed that I can pull it off while keeping it in a 'classic, homely, colourful and traditional' style. (Hi Mum! I just made up your style for you. Hope you don't mind...)

For the record, I don't have a tonne of moolah for this project so most updates will be pretty simple. I'm looking forward to it tho!

Time for me to put on some pants and go start painting. Wish me luck! I'll be back with the After's as soon as poss, and will be instagramming all the updates no doubt (Amy_5kindsofhappy).



  1. I can't wait to see what you come up with for this room. It is always interesting to see what can be created on a limited budget! Lets face it..... most of us don't have a lot of 'moolah'! Yels xox

  2. I found you through MND today with your "She Loves Me..." post. I'm your newest follower :) Can't wait to see what you do with this space!

  3. I really love the color palette, and I really want to see how you can manage changing it on a low budget!

  4. It's going to be so cute and charming! Can't wait to see it done :)

  5. Ooh I'm loving this color palette! And the view from your guest room is simply spectacular!


Thanks for your comment. You are awesome!
