It's been a busy week!
More glossing done, and more furniture moved.
If you read this blog regularly, you can probably guess where we found this table and also the chairs. I can't imagine how we'd have managed without the help of ebay. These chairs had hardly been used, and still had the price tags underneath. The seller had just bought a Weimaraner puppy and wasn't sure if it would damage them with its claws. I think I'd have waited to see what happened first rather than get rid of them. The table used to live in Malvern, I'm not sure how old it is.
We had just enough space in the dining room for an armchair. This is Laura Ashley via ebay. It is very squishy and comfortable. This spot will be perfect for reading in winter with the woodburner on.
The roller blinds weren't from ebay, as they had to be made to fit the windows. They're fine enough not to block out all the sunlight, but to also provide privacy, and thick enough to hopefully dispense with drawing the curtains every night.
I'm really pleased with how the blinds look!
I think we've managed to make the most of the space in our little dining room.
In the utility room, the tiler came back yesterday to fit the tiles. The colours in them are beautiful.
I sealed the tiles today, hence why the sockets are still hanging off waiting for the sealant to dry!
In between the dining room and utility room is the kitchen. It's still a dumping ground/major work in progress!
We're heading in the right direction, but there's still a lot to be done.
