One Unfinished Job Finished....

I wonder sometimes why I am absolutely fantastic at starting little makeovers/jobs etc around the home, yet am absolutely rubbish at finishing them. Please tell me I am not the only one who has this trait. Take Master Poppins' feature wall in his attic bedroom. I was brilliant at getting the Cath Kidston wallpaper out and started wallpapering with gusto and enthusiasm. As the room has a round window in it, it became quite a difficult task getting past that window, lots of workings out and careful cutting. If any of you have ever wallpapered around a round window, you shall understand. Anyway a couple of widths before the end of the wall I just flaked out and had had enough. Yes I know, why give up a job nearly done, daft isn't it. But there we are. Anyway he has had a big gap behind his bed for longer that I wish to admit, until today. As he was relaxing on the couch as he is off school under the weather with a bad cough I cracked on, mixed my paste, cut two lengths of wallpaper to size and did it. I actually finished the job I had set out to do yonks ago. It looks so much better and of course I am cross I didn't finish it sooner, as it really didn't take long at all....


Now to crack on with the other trillion things left unfinished ;)

  6. I'm also on a mission to complete tasks that have been unfinished for too long; I've just finished one that was over 3 years old. It is great to remove that little bit of guilt.

    I have to admit that I would never have started wallpapering, so must congratulate you on that as well as completing it.

  8. You are not the only one!
    I have such big plans but rarely finish a job! I am more of an ideas person than a finisher!! The bedroom looks lovely. Did you find the cath k wallpaper easy to work with? Xx

    1. Oh yes ideas come so easily, it is the actual getting things done isn't it, and probably why I am such a daydreamer! I have used CK before ( Paris Rose Design ) in my daughters attic bedroom and I have to say is lovely to work with and a very high quality wallpaper imo. I love the way the print actually looks kind of hand painted :) Good luck if you use any of it, am sure you shall love it! x

  10. Hi,I don't think any room in my house gets completely finished off before it needs to be decorated again. I keep hoping my hubby will help me with the more technical jobs but it never comes about. I love your house.
