More Panelling!

So yesterday after my blog post I went on another blogging blitz researching the timber panelling I so desperately want in my family room. I rang Mr Ply & Wood and turns out the panels are not nearly as expensive as I thought! I can do the room for about $250! Now I can't do it straight away but perhaps that can be my birthday pressie next year (hint hint Bren!)

So that makes me feel so much better about the white below the dado rails.

Then I found House of Smith's Blog... Where have you been?!! I can't believe I didn't find this blog sooner! That's the amazing thing about this whole blogging world there are just too many talented and inspirational people out there!

Anyway checkout their bathroom makeover using picture frame moulding...

Beautiful isn't it? I think Izzy would love a room like this! You can follow their blog and checkout more photos here (Highly recommended!).

I think it looks fabulous but a little too fiddly for my big room, I don't have the patience to get it so perfect! I love the blue American colour :(

But then I stumbled onto Apartment Therapy and found this transformation using MDF!

Doesn't that look great? You can find the images and follow the tutorial here.

It's at this point I wish I lived in America because every image I seem to love has walls painted in Benjamin Moore Wedgewood Gray. I have a Benjamin Moore and Pottery Barn obsession at the moment! Also the colours are so much bolder than what you see here in Australia, I'm not sure I can make it look that good!

So this is what our room looks like now after a day of sorting through paint colours! Ohh dear it just gets worse and worse!

So I think a trip to Bunnings is in order today for some more sample pots! Wish me luck!

P.S. Thanks to everyone who has commented over the last few days...Nice to know I'm not just talking to myself!
