We finally finished painting our newly reclaimed room over the weekend (reclaimed from rubbish that is, here). Ahhh....so much brighter and calmer, don't you think? The room is only small (roughly 4m x4m) with two doorway (one into the kitchen and one into the hallway).
Above is the view from the hallway. Later we will replace the blinds and the new sofa (which is on order) will sit under the sash windows.
A view of the right hand side of the room.
This is where I do all my blogging, watching tv and not doing housework..hehe. We bought this original cutler desk at auction for $170 many years ago...cheap because they had gone out of fashion apparently, but not to us.
The three drawer stand next to it came from my fathers childhood home.
This little meatsafe houses a collection of china and bits and bobs.
I had this rack in the greenhouse for ages, and decided to assemble it and bring it inside.
My gorgeous new pillowcover/cushion arrived (from here). The barbers chair was a birthday gift for the Mr, bought in the Snowy Mountains, en route to a clearing sale. Its a keeper but will be moving to a new spot when the sofa arrives.
Do you like my new coffee table?? I bought in one of the pie racks from the shed, and added it to an industrial rolling basket, and simply tied it on with rope, through the original holes.
The meatsafe below was a xmas present from the Mr, the year we moved into our home (2001). It is massive, and still has the original cast iron meat hooks inside. It now holds the Mr's beloved Playstation 3 and tv, and part of his Star Wars collection (most of which is packed away).
Lastly, I had to show you a picture of my dads painting shoes. A pair of Dr Martens...priceless.
Enjoy the new week, Tam x
