Paint makes a world of difference

I have been redecorating our lounge room as it is almost nine years since we moved into the house and I decorated the lounge when we first moved and now feel it is time for a change.

The lounge is two steps down so the wall behind the lounge suite is tall and therefore needs a large print behind.  Previously we had a dark orange feature wall with three covered canvases.

I forgot to take a before photo but here is a photo of the wall after the canvases had been taken down.

I have recovered the canvases and painted the feature wall.

The lounge room looks completely different now.  My next step is to make some cushions.  I have knitted one cover and have bought some fabric for the second one.

We are hoping to buy two wing-backed chairs but the store is out of stock at the moment so we will need to be patient.  New carpet is the next step.

      My next project will be to paint our main bedroom. We have a feature wall behind the bed and I want to change that. I am also thinking about painting our bedroom suite ie the bed and side tables. At the moment they are dark wood and I would like to lighten them up. I will need to look into how to do this.
