    We had fitted wardrobes put in (same reason as Maria) and now need to put a feature wallpaper over the bed, especially now my Son has peeled off the paint by sticking his underground railway map on the wall and then removing it, which took all the paint off.

    I don't think I'd risk paying £98 a roll though incase he does something similar.

    Make sure you paste it right way up Unsure :lol:

    Wow! I bet that wallpaper will look fabulous! It's good to treat yourself to a little bit of luxury from time to time, and why not? It's good for the soul and general well-being as long as you can afford it.

    We treated ourselves to a conservatory, something we'd always wanted, as a reward to ourselves after 40 years of marriage. I reckoned that we deserved it after all that time!! Now we're only two years off our golden wedding anniversary, so I'm already planning my next luxury treat. You can't take the money with you, so might as well spend some of it while you can enjoy it!

    Hi Unsure
    I can't believe your decorator put the wallpaper on upside down :lol:
    Silly man :roll:
    I don't think you should worry about spending your money you can't take it with you
    My parents used to go to America every year before my dad retired and kept saying that they were spending my inheritance I said spend it you can't take it with you and do it whist you are both well as one day you might not be able to how true were my words as 2 yrs ago my mum had a very severe stroke we didn't think she would make it but bless her she did and is now paralysed down her left hand side and bed bound but still has he memory and they often sit and go through their photos talking about the good times they had in America
    So go for it if you have the money spend and enjoy as one day you might not be able to :)
    Plus you don't want the government to get any more of your money than they have already

    Buy wallpaper from a DIY shop and you might see it in someone else's house too :shock:
