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.
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! :)
