Last December, my living-room looked like this.
Then for a while it looked like this, after I stencilled the walls.
As a trial for my Impossibilities Challenge, I put up two floating shelves, one on each side.
In May, the old geezer finally put up the other two shelves over the radiators for me.
(We don't like to hurry things around here !)
I had visions of building radiator cabinets underneath the shelves,
but the wood has warped, so we are going to see what happens when we
put the rads on, in the winter.
For now I have made burlap curtains !
They are a bit more see-through than I would have liked, but I could line them I guess.
I am not quite sure why I can't take a straight photo, I rarely drink alcohol.
I think my house is wonky !
With stuff on the mantle as well, it's looking rather overcrowded in the photos, but
sitting here, it all looks lovely to me. A minimalist I am not.
I finally have the perfect place for my lightbulb light. The cord tucks down the back.
I haven't caulked the shelves in case they do warp.
I rescued the basket from the garden.
Driftwood from the beach.
I really liked my beachy mantle, so when I removed it, I put some things under this large cloche.
I still have a beast of a tv (it's looking hopeful, that we may soon get a replacement)
I love the fact that in the next holiday season, I now have loads of places to display
