Painting the Wardrobe for our Bedroom *~*

As always there are some jobs that always seem such a chore, we keep putting them off and think.... I shall do them another day......

This was one of them, when we moved here two years ago we left this wardrobe in the garage to be painted first, before deciding which room to put it in....

and there it stayed, I must admit I did stash things in it  (bags of fabric, spare curtains, old coats etc...)
 Until last weekend, then my very special Man painted it....

It is now standing in our bedroom looking very smart....
a new wardrobe just for me!

  So I sorted out my clothes and hung them in their new home...

Thank you Fin you are a star....

So I baked him a cake to say Thank you!!


 (I found this tablespoon in a C shop, it reminds me of baking with my Mum when I was little)

 Put the kettle on and put your feet up.....Yum!

Thank you for all your kind words, I love reading them and they mean so much

  9. ~ Hello, Thea...Your wardrobe is perfect and looks to be full to the brim with loveliness inside too! We have a large cupboard on our landing which has had it's under coat on now for almost a year...I know! ~ I could paint it, but living with a perfectionist ( Pisces) he like to do it all himself! ~ I may show him yours and drop some BIG hints....hehe! Your Victoria sponge looks delicious! ~ Lucky Fin! ~Thanks for kind words always Thea....You are always so lovely! Love Maria x

  10. The wardrobe looks perfect in your bedroom and Fin has done a brilliant job with the painting. Your clothes do look very pretty in there.I need to get on with some decorating about our house too.I am waiting until we have a weeks holiday in June and then the intention is to do some 'prettyfying' about the house!!

  11. So sweet of Fin to paint your wardrobe!
    It's looking very nice!

  12. Lovely Fin - I think you have a very special man. I bet he enjoyed his cake. I love your pretty dressing table too. My Mum still has several spoons like yours and uses them daily. I can remember childhood cake baking with them too and being allowed to lick the spoon and bowl. Happy times. Karen xx

  13. Oh, he's a grand lad doing that for you! Your clothes look very pretty hanging there. I remember those spoons too, in fact I may even have one in the kitchen drawer (must check that out) Thanks for your comments on my blog! Suzy xo
