Decisions, Decisions

I recently purchased this unusual piece of furniture. I know, I know it looks like a door to somewhere but I am going to use it as a food larder, jazz it up with wallpaper background and shelving, splash of paint and cinderella it.

Only thing is I CAN’T MAKE UP ME MIND, I have too many ideas in my head.

I got inspired by this little fella and his colourful ways.

No before you ask he is not mine, it’s just a picture I came across, I am really liking the blue and yellow combo. I was thinking of this lush wallpaper inside the larder and painting the larder exterior yellow, bit retro like.

My picture doesn’t do the wallpaper justice but I think you get the idea .Blue and yellow can by so fresh together.

I also came across this lovely wallpaper, bit countryish/orientally (grammar was never my strongest point, especially in school. I can just hear Mrs Clancy with her very posh accent shouting “Dear Gillian, what kind of language do you speak, it is unheard of, ridiculous tututututut”) Anyways, have a look.

I thought for this wallpaper (it is a lot brighter in real life) painting the exterior cream so that the wallpaper almost pops out of the larder. These are just two of my ideas I do have another EIGHT, for God sake, any opinions are very welcome before brain explodes, countdown 10, 9, 8 ……….
