Bedroom Floors Reveal And A Giveaway!!

The bedroom floors are all done and so I can show you how they look!! We're really pleased with them and after having such scruffy flooring for such a long time it has made such a huge difference to how the house looks.

Our room:

We are so pleased with the white washed laminate - it was from UK Flooring Direct and cost just £7.35 per sq m. It doesn't look any cheaper than the oak laminate we have downstairs which was much more expensive.

I went and painted the wardrobe in the end:

I'm not sure about it!! :0/ - it looks a bit......I dunno.....I'm thinking of putting a bit of CK Rose Sprig wallpaper on the eight panels or something....

The boys room is much better:

Am going to paint their wardrobe & bookcase at some point, not sure what colour as I'm not keen on mine in Old White

Still no CK tiles in the bathroom as the floor is still drying, hopefully they are going down tomorrow.

In the meantime, I have a little giveaway for you - I am delighted to have reached 200 followers so I have a copy of "Where Women Create"  - I love to nosey round other people's craft rooms so this book is a treat!!:

Aren't these rooms fab? If you'd like to be entered into the draw to win the book you just need to be a follower and leave a comment below - I'll use a random number generator to pick a winner next Friday 14th October....
