Living area reveal!

I know, I know!  The furniture arrived on Tuesday and it's taken me this long to show it to you!!!  So instead of wasting more time writing about it, I'll just show you the pictures :-D

Here's when we first moved in.  Bit of a mess and hard to see the actual furniture, but it gives you half an idea :)

And here's where we'd moved pretty much everything out:

I think everything is gone in this pic:

And here's the new stuff :)

The plan is that we'll sand back the coffee table and stain it to match the rest of the furniture.  The TV is loving being on a proper stand, rather than on top of a box (albeit a lovely box) with the stereo stacked on the side looking very untidy!

And yes!  That is a wine rack over there :-)  Looks like I'll be stopping in at Dan Murphy's next week (darn!).

You can't see it very well, but there's a rather large buffet in the corner behind the dining table.  Somehow it fits SO much more in it than the last one (probably partly because of the huge drawers!!!), to the point that I still have room in it.  Between the new kitchen and the new furniture, I feel like I actually have space for all of our "stuff", especially now that we've purged a lot of it anyway.

So there it all is!  We have a plan to replace the lounge suite some time in the next 12 months, and I'd like to get some new table cloths and runners, an up-light (we only have flouros and sometimes you just want a bit of mood lighting), and some art for the walls.

Last night we were watching a little TV and the Big Fella says to me, "you know, it feels like a real house now".  I guess that means we've chosen the right stuff for us :-D


  1. Oh Scootershell - I know the perfect person to hook you up with some scentual goodies/mood lighting ;)

    1. Hmmmm, anyone I know? Perhaps I'll be able to hook up next week when I'm down your way ;-)
