I'm so pleased, I've finally managed to finish one decorating job, and now I only have about 20 or so to go! I finally got around to choosing some fabric for the new bench seat that my husband built in our bedroom and I got an upholsterer to cover it for me. The seat has loads of storage space in it - which we've already filled to the brim!
I chose a neutral linen with a fine olive check through it. I'm really happy with the results - it looks much better than it does in these pictures (the crappy camera has got to go!!). And whilst I have plans for sitting here reading and chatting on the phone etc., in reality I know that this seat will become a repository for all those clothes we're too lazy to re-hang or put in the laundry basket each evening. Oh well, as long as we pick them up and launder/hang them in the morning all should be okay.
I quite like the fine olive green check in the fabric - green is definitely one of my favourite colours.
Now on to the next decorating job - an awning and a new sun lounge for the back deck I think.
P.S. I must remember to take 'before' shots. This was a horrible dead space before we put the window seat in, and even though it doesn't look 100% now, it looks a whole lot better than it used to.
