OK, this is what our corrimec (portacabin-style room) used to look like.
… and this is after decoration. For those who might be confused, our beds are underneath the wood covered section. They are basically brick cubby-holes with mattresses in. They protect us from all the bad stuff 🙂


I added nicer sheets of wood, covered the bricks with green fabric, and ordered ‘picture wallpaper’ which I ‘hung’ this morning (with industrial strength double-sided sticky tape!

The only money spent was about £30 on the posters (I still have two left) and £8 on the green fabric, but my ‘home’ is so much nicer now!

I then put up some rather sparse christmas decorations, but they still look nice…

twinkles… and a card line but I hung crackers on it as I only have 2 cards so far and both are inside my bedspace!

AND… guess what came in the post!
…and what I stitched on night shift 1…
