Problem number one is that I'm creating my little haven of vintage in a smallish modern house. Obviously most pieces are just too big. Problem number two is that I'm not a very confident woman with a paintbrush and I was completely put off by things the wrong colour. Problem number three was the sheer amount of time involved in travelling round my part of the West Midlands finding the kind of shops that might, remotely have what I was looking for. I can't help feeling that Kirstie makes it look a bit easy in her 'Handmade Home' programmes!
Anyway, there is a happy ending to this rant. I found the perfect bear 'house' at the back of a shop in Leominster. The 20 year old IKEA bookcase that the bears sat on before has moved down the road to my sisters. Nothing has been wasted.
All I need now is a nice little bedside cabinet for this room.....
Happy teddies in the corner of the bedroom!!
