We'd a bit of a panic putting up the curtains last night- I get so confused when it comes to widths and drops and the like, and when I laid them out they looked utterly enormous for the windows, but I rang 1-800DialYerMa (both mother AND mother in law) and thankfully they were able to talk me down. It went something like this-
|2am and I'm still crackin' the whip!|
|Our Gumtree fireplace got the Annie Sloane treatment too!|
|It's not dirty..it's smoked grey!|
|Ta dah! The new curtains!|
It took me quite a while to catch on that my scrubbing was causing the glass to lose its 'smoked grey' fancy finish. Oooops! Never fear, I had a rare brainwave because let's just say that a little bit of black shoe polish worked a treat and restored the look and you'd never be any the wiser....I know what you're thinking 'cos I thought it too-I'm exactly like Kirsty Allsopp, only ginger and without the A line skirt!
Anyway given today being the end of term and the resulting fact that there won't be a quiet moment around here for two whole months, I thought I'd treat you to a wee bit of Alice Cooper-welcome to my world and have a good weekend, Emx
