You've really got the bug! They look great! I think that chest needs different wallpapers on each drawer, now before everyone thinks I'm just touting for business, I know you have plenty left!!! Show us when you've decided! Well done! :) x

Oh Ada Bea @ Vintage Sheet Addict is so talented, I love her blog!

Your upcycling is fabulous, very clever.

Would love to see what you may or may not do with the drawers!

Love Claire xx

Seems like it is wallpaper week on the blogs this week - it's popping up everywhere. Love what you've done ith the furniture. I'm also unsure about the chest...

Hello, just found your blog..
Love what's happening with wallpaper these days. So much more exciting than putting it on the wall!
I'm renovating a very old cottage, and am always on the lookout for vintage bits and pieces for it. Sorry to have missed Trull.

I'm lusting after that Sunday newspaper holder thingy in the background. Where did you find it..?

Loo xx from Jumbles and Pompoms said...

Wow, I love what you've done. I say wallpaper away. I've ordered some papers off Ada too. xx

You can never have too much vintage pattern ... ;)

Kim said...

Me thinks to paint the chest...The drawers in the same but the outer edges a contrasting color.

Wonderful papers and I love what you have already done, but I am in the camp that says to leave the drawers as they are.

Country Style Living said...

Love your makeovers Elaine, I am partial to a spot of wallpapering too! I think papering the drawer fronts only and perhaps leave the original blue paint, if not to bad...

Nostalgia at the Stone House said...

Love your transformations Elaine.

I'd leave the drawers though...I'm finding in my shop that people are going back to dark woods rather than painted furniture...here you have a mix of the two, which is great to suit all tastes...unless you are keeping the drawers for yourself and they aren't to sell on? If its just you, you need to please, then do what's in your heart.

Have a great day,
Niki x

I too saw that amazing patchwork wall, maybe you could pachwork the drawers. Love your animals, so lucky to live in Dorset. Catherine x

Stunning wallpaper makeovers As for the drawers what a dilemma - do you want to borrow my coin to toss for it.

Trixie@ the vintage bothy said...

Isn't it funny how tastes change, I am with Niki, I have come round from painted to wood.
Infact in our new/old barn I am having wooden beams, real wooden floors, and white walls, mix of wooden furniture with kilims for colour and the odd painted piece.
Have I grown up? I hope not!!
