From Prison Cell Grey To Vibrant Woodland Green In Photos

In  the From Prison Cell Grey To Vibrant Woodland Green Video I shared my vision for decorating the downstairs toilet.

It was a drab, boring, uninspiring prison cell grey, it felt cold and uninviting. I'd avoid it a go up an extra flight of stairs to use the bathroom.

I was inspired to create a woodland scene, the room has been transformed. Take a look in pictures.

It's amazing what a little vision, self confidence and self-belief can do. I strayed from some of my original ideas, the moss on the back of the door got vetoed after I stripped it back to the natural grain. And the moss idea, I don't know where that came from! I've learned to edit ideas and not stuff them all into one space!

If you're thinking of adding bold colours to your home, start in a small room because there won't be much to change if you don't like it!

I Didn't Stop There
