Exciting! I can’t wait to decorate our house, the bedroom is also on the list. We have a new bed & mattress but everything else needs doing. Are you replacing furniture also or just decorating walls x

Im in the middle if decorating at the moment, we started the first week of January and the end is in sight 🤣 We have literally done the whole house though - every wall has been painted with 2 coats, ceilings, wallpaper. Its taken us much longer this time due to having a 2 year old 🙈 Make sure you’ve got everything you need, shop around for paint, wallpaper etc so you get the best value for money and preperation is key. Good luck 👍🏻

Use masking tape to cover light switches etc so you don't get paint on them - it's really easy to apply and take off!

Remember to have a clean plastic bag next to you when painting. If half way through place the brush in the bag, this keeps the bristles damp while stopping for the loo or eating.

We are also mid way decorating. Have found preparation is key. As boring & arduous as it can be, it makes a huge difference. Also better the paint quality, less coats needed. I also found wearing latex gloves helpful in not getting paint all over me.

I use cheap cotton gloves for the same reason. They’re a lot more comfortable and less sweaty than the latex ones.
