No, but I think I have chosen a wall! And it's a different wall to the one I was thinking of. Which means I can have one gallery wall and one patchwork wall. I just hope it doesn't make the room feel smaller!
Here's the new wall I 'found'.
It has a door in it and is half obliterated by a huge mirror and a double chest of drawers so the impact of the patchwork wallpaper will be broken up I think. (And of course my dressing table is ALWAYS as tidy as this. I certainly haven't just shifted piles of crapola onto the floor!)
Sadly I can't start anything as this wall needs to be chased for the upstairs rewiring which hasn't yet begun. So for now, inspired by a picture on Pinterest...
...this will have to do.
But it will leave this wall...
...free for the pictures.
Speaking of pictures, I got another one!
I love white flowers. My favourite picture is this one by Van Gogh...

Sadly I'm not a millionaire so this is a print in an old car boot sale frame. But I LOVE it. And the new one reminded me of this one.
I had an old frame which almost fits, I just need to saw the edge off the picture. I like how it looks. Slightly grand and slightly knackered with it's missing corner.
The bedroom is very much a work in progress.

It fits that wall perfectly. It's an old 1950's fake french number which had a dated, cracked and peeling paint job.
So I've stripped the top, which appears to be solid mahogany, stained it and lightened it with a paint wash before sealing it.
Then I started priming the drawers. I didn't want to sand them in case the paint has lead in it so I used my beloved Zinsser primer.
Er, then I got a bit distracted and started something else. That happens a lot around here.
But it is NOT going to be white.
And here's a close up of the mirror...
This was a gold plastic frame with a cardboard picture of a ship in it when I bought it from a charity shop for £2 long, long ago.
Here it is painted white in my last house...
We're having important guests to stay in September and they will have this room so I do need to get it finished by then. Even the orange skirting boards! I wish I had a photo of this room when we moved in. Every surface was papered in 1060's abstract textured wallpaper and most of it was orange. Even the door. I can't even remember what was on the floor. I reckon I'm halfway there.
Thank you for all your ideas on my last post. The film poster is going to live on the stairs.
One last pic for today.
A permanent fixture on my bed!
