    Sounds like a LOT of pain and struggle but that it was so totally worth it @poppy123456!!! And now every time you're in your dream bedroom you can be even more proud knowing you did it yourself!!!! I'm so impressed and inspired!!! 😍😍

    I tried painting my last place and it was awful and I didn't do any of the prep stuff just slung paint on the wall and it took forever and hurt. You went above and beyond and now get to reap the rewards!!! It sounds lovely and restful now. <3<3  <3

    Do you have another project in mind once you've had some more time?

    It sounds like pure determination got you through that Poppy. I am so pleased for you that the result is what you wanted. Surroundings really are important. Light and colour are essential for well being.

    I used to be really good at decorating but I am relieved that all the walls in the house I hopefully have are white. I can get my room how I want it by using my wallhangings hopefully. It makes me hurt just hearing about all that hard work! Just moving all our things is a daunting enough prospect for me just now.

    I think it depends on whether they want any more information from us for referencing. If they have finished it might be Monday but if they want more information it could be up to another week. 
    I am trying hard to be patient.

    Thanks everyone. Yes, determination was an understatement. I did shed a few tears during those 10 days and did pull some of my hair out too. 

    @Biblioklept at the moment I don't have any plans for any other room because I need a rest for a while yet. My daughter though, has mentioned wanting her room done as well.  :#

    I will share some pictures very soon.  :)
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Sorry for the delay posting the pictures. I fell asleep early last night and when I woke up I just went to bed. Still recovering after all that work! Anyway, here's some pictures. I've taken one at night as well so you can see just how cosy it is. 
    The rest of my furniture is behind me as I take the picture and couldn’t fit it in 😂

    Ooooooooh @poppy123456!!! That is GORGEOUS!!! I have serious bedroom envy!!! The night time pics just look so cosy and comforting and such a nice place to sleep! <3<3 

    Is the door to the side of your bed a built in cupboard or is it the door to the room?

    You've done such an amazing job 😍😍

    your bedroom looks  amazingly cozy, I take my hat off to you for doing all that by yourself with help with your daughter. 
     When I paint I end up with more on me than on the walls 🙂

    @Biblioklept and @Zimba thank you both.  :) Yes, biblioklept it's a built in cupboard, both bedrooms have them. The door to the bedroom is to the right of where I'm stood taking the picture.

    Thank you Beaver! Yes, it's a decent size, my window is almost 4 meters wide and the room is longer than that. I just wish the window wasn't as big.

    I hate Mondays,  I dislike my job, it’s a challenge I face every week. Most of the people are unfriendly. I don’t want to stop working because the less I move the more impact it has on me and I socialise with a few nice people there. Feels like I wish my life away as can’t wait for Friday. 🙂 so I have a motto…it’s a kinda of mantra that kicks starts my iner- fierce 😼.

    I just wanted to say in response to @Biblioklept 's kind comments that I helped inspire them to do their achievement ...

    I decided all morning I was not going to go to my Granny's birthday party today as I wasn't feeling right and my anxiety was really bad but I got a really nice message from @Biblioklept which boosted my mood so now I have decided I am just about strong enough to go :D 

    I am really sorry if this breaks any confidence but I just thought it was a nice idea to be able to share that you helped me in the same way :blush:

    I am off to drink champagne and eat some cake now so bye everyone :D
