….. of our new living room.
Sadly, I have no before shots, but imagine this: a tiny dark room, with an L-shaped bite out of it, where there was an inside porch by the front door. A dirty orange carpet, an orange pine fireplace, grubby white walls. Yuck. Now it looks like this:
(cushions all from Etsy, sofa from DFS – half price!)
(my knitting corner, which me and Tony are fighting over already)
(the corner by the front door is where the porch was originally)
(I can’t tell you what trouble we had getting all the books in! I had to get rid of quite a lot, sigh)
It feels so bright and spacious in here now, it’s a joy to work in (I do a lot of my Posh work in here, on the laptop, by the woodstove. Wouldn’t you?!?). Although I am a leetle bit paranoid about the cream carpet, what with Tony (who tends to spill), the three cats, and the wood stove.
No sooner has the dust settled from this project than we’re planning the next. Our plan, which we want to do over the Christmas break, is to knock through the two upstairs bedrooms (both absolutely tiny) into one big room. Then we can move our bedroom upstairs, and use the downstairs bedroom as a yarn store/office. The house will be much more practical and pleasant then. I can’t wait until it’s all done!
