I am madly in love with anything vintage and have been for over 20 years or so now. The appeal for me with the 1940s and 1950s started when I was a teenager because I just didn't find the modern lifestyle appealing or romantic. So from about the age of seventeen I was hooked on the clothing, the furniture and the music. I can't get enough and enjoy being around others who love it as much as me. What a way to live! I wouldn't ask for it any other way. Now I can write a blog about my lifestyle and the things I enjoy and feel passionate about.

Painting My 1940s Loungeroom

Well hello again,
As we are on holidays my husband and I had the 'brilliant' idea of re-painting our lounge room the other day which  has now gone from a simple paint job to a full redo. It seems that once you start you can't stop as more things pop up to fix. The lounge room is smallish with timber windows and has not be touched in 10 years or so. It really needed a going over.
So after a few trips to the paint supplier, furniture removal and banter back and forward with my hubby about where to start we got going.
Prepping is soooo much fun - not!!! Plaster dust found in so many places that I wouldn't have thought it could reach. Stuff everywhere which means constant tripping over things and minimal room.
Anyway here are a few shots of our very messy lounge area. Hopefully it will be finished on the weekend. Wish us luck!!
