Computer/Dining Room Makeover; Part 1



Now that the children are growing and our family has a need for more livable space, its time to redo our dining/computer/playstation 3 room. This is the room that India's friend thought was our garage..haha.

It seems to be a catchall at times (hence that mess all over the table) and is quite full of stuff. The said stuff shall be moved to another area (mostly in the granny flat/studio or shed).

As we never seem to sit at the table, one persons life is squeezed from their chest if the try and sit in the chair next to the barbers chair, we have decided to move the table out. Freeing up some space to add a new sofa. We spent a lot of time in this room watching movies/tv on the computer..blogging to lovely blog friends..and playing the playstation anyhow, so why not be comfortable.

It will be our turn for Christmas this year also (apparently our oven will be fixed next week, but that's another story), the extra seating will also come in handy.

As it is quite close to our holiday, I may have to wait until we get back for the new sofa, but I am destashing and organising the space at the moment, and I think we still have some paint in the shed. A little at a time don't they say??

Here are a few shots of the before, tomorrow I will show you a few new elements for the room makeover. Have a lovely day!
