I mentioned a couple of months ago that I wanted to attack our big yellow Ikea four poster because it was ruining the lines in our room. For once, we didn’t just talk about it for months and then throw it onto the pile of other discarded ideas, Although our time and money is stretched at the moment, this was a fairly straightforward project, which Barry really kicked off when I came home to see that he’d already gone ahead and sawed the top off our bed.
This is how it looked before and after. My original plan was to buy some white paint to cover the yellow but something happened when I got to B&Q. It’s a bit of a cliffhanger if you were to care at all what colour I happened to select; this is a two-parter.
