Helping with the Painting

Hi all,

Mum recently has started to take advice on her home decoration from the foxtel (cable) home programs. Whenever home owners have a desire to improve, the programs always say....de-personalise and de-clutter. My mum will tackle the clutter when the house goes on the market in a few years.

This is a wall that is in our combined formal dining/lounge rooms. Mum and her brother (uncie) had been all adventurous and put a wallpaper border up and painted a radical red colour. Mum then sponged gold over the top. Some people said it reminded them of a Chinese Restaurant!! Mum said "gggrrrrr!" to that. She decided after 10 years - this has got to go.


So then mum (and dad) moved the cupboards away and put sheets and stuff all over the floor.


I grabbed a paintbrush and showed mum what true home decoration was all about!!!

NB: (Furkids, please do not try this at home - I knew the wall was about to be painted! Otherwise you might find yourselves with a smack on the bum bum!!!)


Alas, my artwork was not enough to save the red wall! (*Hummpphh*)   :-(


I thought it was pretty good, at least I should have got credit and praise for not getting paint all stuck in my woozle!!


Going,  going......


GONE!

All yellowy neutral like the other walls in here.......I say boring!! What do you think?

  1. I thought the previous wall rather nice (but I am Chinese \^_^/) but the new wall also looks nice - more calming. Rubie, my wall needs a paint job desperately!

  2. I thought the new yellow wall looks brighter! Nice drawing there Rubie! Can you help draw a Silky?

    My "dinner is served" video can now be watched. Silly Mom forgot to put it as "public" viewable.

  3. Well I think your new wall looks very smart tho' I did like the picture of you Rubie - that would have really cheered it up if it had stayed. Here all the walls - and the floor were white when we moved in - scary like an operating theatre :-( so Judith & Leigh have been trying to get colourful things to brighten it up. Even your neutral wall is warmer than white! Love from Magic xx

  7. Sorry rubie, but I have to say I like the new wall color. I don't think it's boring at all. I must say, next time you do artwork, put it on a canvas, that way your mum can hang it on the wall! How did you get all the way up there to paint your lovely picture, by the way?

  11. Yes we agree the best bit was your beautiful portrait Rubie, oh my, my sweetheart is also an artist, is there no end to my good luck :-) The new wall looks great, it's nice to have a change every now and again and it looks lovely and bright, but then that's probably just because you're in the rooom :-) Dex xxx

  15. wow Rubie – what a great little helper you were! That is some nifty painting work! I like the new look of your living room – very nice, calm colour. And I think my human, Hsin-Yi, needs to come and take some the clutter lessons from your human! She is the world's worst hoarder!!
