I'm pleased to announce we've got grand house plans for 2010!
I'm not sure if the promised new kitchen will come to fruition, but we've already started on the front rooms and have had great fun planning and dreaming of the way we want things to look. It's also been nice to concentrate on something new and separate from my now all-consuming post-baby career.
So: on to 2010!
This is my new armchair in its new home in the front room.
It's a grainy, moody night-before-Christmas pre-reno-shot.
And doesn't it go well with my new lamp ? How's this, I ordered that lamp 3 days before Christmas and it arrived Christmas Eve. That's service - I was mighty impressed.
I got it over the web, from Buyster Lighting, if you're interested. I'd definitely use them again.
The sister chair is down in the family room, where it gets fought over on a regular basis. Soooo comfy.
And I now have a home for my Aunty Cookie cushions. The kids aren't allowed near them.
This is an *adult* room. It's clean. The walls aren't drawn on. I like it that way.
So we've replaced the original thin, cracked glass in the windows and AB has sanded and stripped back the metal frames. We've undercoated the fireplace and soon we'll start on the garish walls ( currently yellow with brothel red and brothel gold trim on the architraves - mmm )
Oh, and i've designed a whole new backyard - it came to me in a dream, I swear, and I didn't even look at any design mags, and if I don't say so myself, the design is AWESOME. I only hope it looks as good in real life.
So i'm quite toey to get that underway.
Projects, projects, projects. I love projects.
But first, the front room - stay tuned. ..
