Instead of wallpapering (I refuse to strip any more wallpaper – I don’t care about imperfections), I’m going to paint the walls. We’ve already chosen a colour and I painted a sample on the walls over the weekend. Looks ok and will go with the curtains. Already the room is looking way better – the holes and tears caused by drawing pins and blue tack covered up. But, I’m truly sick of painting!
