Painting, painting, painting...

... but not on canvases. On walls. I've been visiting my mother's Summer Cabin, and several of the rooms have dark wooden wainscot on the walls. I so wanted to lighten the room, and started painting... and painting... and painting...
One of the room has a lot of 'dead space' because of the slanting roof, and my brilliant brain got an even more brilliant idea: design and make H*U*G*E drawers! There's a lack of storing places at the cabin too, so these drawers could really be usefull. Underneat you can see one of them - unpainted. The size of the drawer is actually 1x1x1 meter.
And finally - the room is all done! (The doors will be white too, but I left that job for my mother... she needs something to fill her loooong teacher holiday!) The drawers are 'hided' behind the old, blue bed.
And, while painting the first room, I slept in a room that was perfect when we were kids - with two homemade bunks (køyesenger). But when all us kids all grown up - and the beds still measures 1,75 m - it was time for an extreme makeover. And, I'm so sorry to say that I totally forgot to take the 'before' pictures... You just have to imagine a 4x4 m room, with wooden wainscot all covered with these bunks. The room was dark and unpractical...

...untill I got crazy with the hammer and the paint! And - taaadaaaa - here is the new room:

Elisabeth sa...

Ååh, det er bare så mye flottere med malte vegger enn med trehvite! Det skal liksom ikke så mye til heller for å gi litt liv til et rom. Kjempeflotte resultater :)

Kjempeflott ble det, du er dyktig. Skuffene var utrolig smart.
Dette var litt av en jobb, og det er vel en fornøyd mamma som kommer dit neste gang.
