Because we live on the street we needed to have something to cover the lower half of the window and I hate net curtains, we found the amazing fake stained glass in the local hardware shop and it turned out much nicer that I was expecting. You can't really see it very well in this picture but there is a fish mobile hanging in the window, my cousin makes them from left over drift wood and fishing line she finds on her local beach in Kerry.
I also found two 'retro' oil lamps in my local charity shop on Saturday, a bargain at two euro each. There is a purple one (in the picture) and a matching pink one.
The drawback? It really shows up how shabby the rest of the flat it! Plenty more decorating to come ...
