Moved again!
After a year and a half of living in a super small place.

I am now in our new place for 7 days. We JUST got our 2.5 seater sofa from the storage unit.

We’re 70% unpacked. I am 170% exhausted. :)

The worst thing about this move, or moving from a 440sq feet area to someplace else/bigger… is that there was no available floor space for packed boxes! So we have had to do this the ultra slow and ultra INefficient way.

This place is SUCH a blank slate!

There are a few downsides to this space, the biggest 2 being I’m ALLERGIC to it! (It was owner occupied prior to this and he had a dog, a cat and a bird inside.) Also, 60% of the house is tiled So my feet get exhausted to the point of pain every night.

Our simple entryway.

The other 'dining table' finally as our hall table.

My “dining table” now, as its proper use, a hall table!

But this place is still our home.

And it’s a super BLANK SLATE! :)

Oh and I have to show and tell!! My new desk is a $50 buy from St Vinnies in Katoomba, NSW. Without the glass. I’d always loved the detail of the faux bamboo furniture, having grown up with a few. :)

It’s actually a dining table, but oh well :) I’m too precious about it to share it with others who don’t care as much about the piece!

I paid $150 for a new glass top, painted it a wonderful pale blue high gloss, let it cure for 6 months…

And now, you’d have to pay upwards of $700 for one in a designer store! :)
