Living Room Make Over


We are making our living room over, from Spanish style, with lots of terra cotta colors and wooden furniture with black ironwork, to quiet grey and white. Last week I painted the walls and my husband is painting the furniture over. It looks great, if I may say so myself. And it always feels great to come home in a ‘new’ house, don’t you think? Due to this make over, I didn’t have time to do much crafting for my blog. However, I’m making new pillow covers to fit in our new living room:  


For this one I used my all time favorite bunting pattern (for a tutorial look here)


Besides that I’m working on decorations for my daughters school for the upcoming Sinterklaas parties, a children's holiday that’s tremendously celebrated here in The Netherlands. Lots of things to do, indeed.
