It all started with a aqua bucket

Hi there happy bloggers,well it seems forever since l posted, and l have been busy making changes , the spring weather seems to do that, in my last post l talked about needing a colour change and so it began, back in July when l started  Ali Edwards  Week in A LIFE project l had brought a Aqua bucket for  my laundry, not knowing then how much it was going to play an important role in my house, after all it was just a bucket, l have always loved this colour ,  but l never seem to buy any items for my house in this colour , even though l tend to use it in my scrapbooking and stamping, so spring arrived and the sun starts to shine the beautiful daffodils are up making happiness in the garden and life starts to feel better, so after a long winter, which sometimes feels forever, l wanted to bring some bright happy colours into my house, l didnt need to make any major changes , l just wanted to lift things , so l walked into the laundry one day and saw that aqua bucket and presto !!!, that was the colour, so then the hunt began, l wanted to start with my bedroom , as l always feel better when it looks nice, l couldnt afford to spend to much money, cos' thats less money for scrapp'in, so l revamped a black photo frame, l went and brought some white spraypaint and sprayed that dull boring frame white, then painted the white mat board Aqua (now my fave colour ) and added letters to the photo sections, which also had to be painted white , and with a little Aqua bowl by my bed and a new cushion , l now have a bright and cheery bedroom.

 the bucket that started it all.
this is what my bedroom looked like before, nothing wrong with what l had, but lm over the red.
Ta Dah........... Lov'in my new colour.

and now l can dream away in my new room.

and my little aqua bowl...............so cute.

 and this is my other halfs side, sorry my darling , but l think the car has to go, or maybe l could get out the trusty spray paint...........lol.

and lm just going to share another little project l did as well, and as you can see, its not aqua, l have had these large letters from Making Memeories for nearly 5 years,  and was always going to use them in my scrap book, but life gets busy, life changes and craft projects get forgotten about , when new ideas come to mind, these letters represent our childrens names and after 5 years of storage  and a blank canvas l had'nt used either, it was time to do something, so with a bit of black paint, some paper from last years Stamp'in up range, its done and on the wall.
Well thats all from me today, hope you enjoyed my projects, and stay tuned for more up and coming Aqua projects.......thanks for looking..................kate
