I don't have a picture of the before. I can't even find one online. I don't think they make these any more. It was pale wood with a hardboard back.
Anyway, here's the after.
The wood was bare so I primed and painted it, then we went through my sheets of vintage wallpaper and cut pieces to size. She did the cutting which is great because she doesn't normally like scissors. I guess straight lines are nice and easy. We glued the pieces in with wallpaper paste. (Hence wallpaper paste disposal disaster...)
She loves it.
I love it.
And Bad Bobby loves it.
He's just making sure I'm aware it's tea time in two hours. Or, you know, whenever I'm ready and have given up taking photos...
My daughter now wants to write a book, no wait, a SERIES of books, make 2 little films and make a wooden deer to sell on ebay! That's my girl...
Oh, and you chazzing, car booting brigade out there? Some of these LPS animals (particularly cats and dogs) fetch over £30 EACH on ebay so keep 'em peeled!
