It's official...

Hi's heard it here first...I'm declaring myself INSANE...completely and utterly bonkers...I must have been possessed by DIY demons to take on the "bitten off more than I can chew this time" cubbyhole make-over and I may well be carted off kicking and screaming in a strait jacket before completion. I fear this may well end up being the longest DIY project in the history of the world.
For the first stage of the mad make-over...I chose Willow Tree...a soft olive green
GREEN is the colour of growth...the colour of Spring...Renewal and Rebirth
It renews and restores depleted energy
It creates a sanctuary from the stresses of modern living and
restores us back to a sense of well being
doesn't seem to be working it's magic so far...
2 walls painted and before you know the first unit is in new storage area is taking shape...
but it may be some time before it's joined by the second...hubby and flat pack furniture do not go well together and he's been left somewhat traumatised. I'll be back tomorrow to share...surprise surprise...a craft project featuring a cute threesome.
Hugs Kath xxx

  5. Morning Kath, the cubbyhole is beginning to look fabulous. I love the colour. Can't believe how quickly its coming along! xx

  6. Wow, you certainly got busy and things are looking great so far. Could you and your husband come over to Greece next week to help us move and to help me set up my new craftroom? LOL

  7. LOL. I just knew you would not be able to resist starting it all!! I think the green will be perfect - a lovely calming influence when the room is finished! Wish I lived closer - I LOVE building DIY furniture!! Hugs, Anne xx

  8. I LOVE this colour Kath, will be so wonderful to be creative in there!!
    Here lives another hubby that doesn't have a clue with DIY furniture and it's never his fault something is wonky or missing *lol*!

    xx Irene

  9. Liking your crafty space makeover so far Kath!
    xoxo Sioux

  10. Looking great so far!
    If we happened to be in Aberdeenshire at the moment, I'd send hubby round, as he's an engineer and great with this kind of stuff. Unfortunately we're not due to go up for another month, and I doubt you'll want to sit with the half-finished chaos that long! lol. x

  11. Ha ha,think we've all been there,it's worth it in the end isn't it !!.Hang in there girl.xx

  12. I like your color choice and the cabinet looks great. My hubby is challenged by the boxed units. We're better not to go there.
    It's going to be a great crafty place!

  14. It's looking good so far Kath. This is the very same colour as I painted my bedroom. It's supposed to be calming and relaxing and I think it works, well, I sleep like a baby in there, and I don't mean curled up with my teddy bear lol. All the best with the rest of the makeover.
    hugs Alexandra x

  15. No flat packs and my hubby don't go well together it's looking good though! l like the colour lots xx
