The sitting Room x

The advantage of doing all the decorating from our building works myself is there’s been something in the pot to buy a few treats like this Hans Wegner wishbone chair.

A pair of them now sit in pride of places at either end of our dining room table. What love.

The extra bonus were the large boxes the chairs arrived in which were quickly commandeered by the children. Who needs toys?

But it hasn’t all been treats and joy. ¬†This was the sitting room on Sunday..

A much needed bookcase went up meaning the final boxes could be unpacked. These are original midcentury tomado shelves – the choice surprised me as well.

Probably a good thing as we have guests for the next two weeks and at last the spare room is liveable in.

The sitting room isn’t finished (check out the plastic storage tub by the yellow chair, part of our sad tv storage) ¬†– it still has some organic growth to go – but it’s a huge improvement.

And lots of pictures have finally gone up.

The footstool still doesn’t have it’s cover on – it’s meant to be white, but I’ve got some lavender coloured dye waiting in the wings…

Slowly. But surely.
