Apparently a house isn't like a car, you shouldn't expect a smooth finish on anything... but I digress, this post isn't about our dodgy builder, it is about me trying to style it on a little money as possible.
There are a few things that need to be done around here. They are:
- New carpet in bedrooms and 'formal' living/dining area (which is actually used as a toy room and my craft space)
- All interior walls repainted- Some of our house wasn't actually completely painted in the first place and the kids have not been kind to our walls either.
- Replace dining chairs with some gorgeous Eames replicas
- Re-cover lounge
- Buy new rug for lounge room- Our current rug is just an Ikea cheapy. I think it cost about $50...
|As you can probably see, I still haven't recovered all the chairs...|
I really need to sort out that toy pile and stop Ethan from playing with the Tupperware too...
Looking back our lounge purchase was a BAD idea. Suede and kids do not go together, but it was bought pre-kids and has seen some better days.
I am struggling to decide which colour to paint the walls. I do know I would like a bright rug for the living space, something with a pattern. Possibly a kilim type mat...
Do you have any suggestions?
It's Tuesday, so I am linking up with IBOT!
