A little house update

Things have been slow finishing off the house.
So much painting to do still.

My table is here and hoping to have the new dining chairs by next
week.  So will post a pic when they arrive.

I have been selling off our old furniture on eBay 
with the intention of replacing it bit by bit with
new pieces.

I finally pulled out my summer linen, although the nights are still 
a bit chilly.

I had big plans for making lots of cushions but due to 
lack of time I  had to 
resort to Bed Bath & Table for some lovely white
European shams and pillow cases.
BB&T lamps too.
I did though make the linen flower cushion at the front.
Bianca Lorenne inspired.
We picked up the linen quilt in Sydney last Christmas
half price.

The sitting nook with one of our old lounges.
Deciding if I should recover it in linen and give it a skirt
or buy a slip covered ikea lounge ????
I don't really love this lounge but the shape 
goes with the rest of the furniture

Cute little tray table.

I have one in my bathroom too.
Pics to come.

It's getting there, slowly.

Happy Friday

    gosh it is all beautiful. You have it picture perfect, and I love the colours.

    Ohhh I could see that lounge in a linen - but if funds are hard - go the ikea cover and luuuuuurve the $25 bargain butlers tray - how fantastic is that!

    have a great day tomorrow
