When we bought our house it was painted a very yellow-cream throughout. I have almost eradicated the cream with Dulux White on White with the exception of the aluminium joinery (argh).
I got Jake, my 16yo, to give me a hand with the final paint of the hallway before prettying it up with some of my amateur artworks.
Pretty mirror which helps open up the space.
My wavey canvas made with some material I found at Bunnings that is normally used in the plumbing trade.
My 3 Koru made using tile adhesive to give lots of texture.
My Planet painting.
I used a hair comb to get the textured effect I was after.
...and finally an artwork done by my 13 year old daughter which will grace the wall as soon as I get it framed. She has been enjoying Art lessons but sadly her teacher is unable to continue with after-school lessons. She said of one of Danneke's watercolours that she had used the same technique as an artist and was most impressed with her work.
I'd love to do a big rave about Suzy and Meg's blogs but I have to dash off and get the kids from school so do yourself a favour and go visit them :o)
