    Ooh I'm jealous!! We've got massive plans for our house but it has to be gradual because each room will literally cost us a bomb. We're starting with the bathroom.
    I'll have a think and a google. Have you tried *********? They have some fab ideas on there. And keep us updated with before/after & progress pics. Then we can all come visit haha xx

    Depends a lot on the sizes and position of the rooms.. for instance my hallway is very narrow and gets barely any light and after a lot of trials..and errors..I eventually used a light warm green, even tho' green is not a particularly fav of mine... House makeover... Help!-dscn0260.jpg..(excuse the coat)
    Much lighter and really effective.

    It is starred out for a reason.And that being it is classed as spam and if we let everyone posts links to groups then the forum would just become a place for spammers.The mods do a great job of keeping spam in posts to a min and it would help if members read the rules and didn't keep trying to post groups that aren't allowed to be mentioned on here.
    It's not about being better than others, it's about being better than YOU use to be.

    A person of words and not deeds is like a garden full of weeds.

    It was a joke. I'm fully aware of the rules. Jess, I'll suggest it via FB instead

    I was going to suggest the pin site too (understand the spam stuff so no links but can't see that making someone aware of a site without a link should be a problem, in the same way as mentioning Tesco or Kellogs)

    Anyway, using that site, make up a mood board for each room, with possible colours, lighting, furniture and incorporating items you already have and would be keeping, like a suite or carpet colours. As you build on it you can add or remove bits you change your mind about. Just be aware, it's addictive and you can lose hours xx
    At long last I've started a diary. If you're mad enough to want to read and hopefully join in, it's here

    I have my pins set to private because I just use it for myself so I'm not sure how the finding and following works. Someone followed me yesterday but I'm not sure why as I don't put things up myself, I just steal other people's I have folders for Cole's first birthday party, Christmas, allsorts. I never realised how good it is x

    You can follow by searching your name or invites through FB. . Think il keep my project on here as I go along as it's nice to look back on!.

    So first room were going to attempt is the cinema room. (Our spare guest room with a projector .... The man's room lol)
    Il upload pics when I've not got a sleeping baby on me

    (PS we've never wallpapered before so that's why were doing that room first!)

    They're amazing and amazingly cheap for the sizes too! I'd have one down here but the room is awkward for one. X
