Here we are a fortnight on and I am hoping by Friday / Saturday I will actually be able to officially move in!!!
This week has involved getting the sofa’s and dining table from my mums house (much to her relief!!) it has involved spending lots on things like a TV, washing machine, bed and wardrobe amongst other things and today has involved a 6.30 start and 9pm finish!
Here are some of the latest pics to show you how things are progressing!!!
The details are below:
I got these to match the IKEA dining table and chairs I already had it could mean getting 6 round the table rather than 4 and because I’m planning on entertaining extra chairs will always be good!
IKEA chair cushion
So my main colour on the feature wall is purple and the other walls grey. Grey will feature in every room in the house for a cohesive feel and a theme throughout. Because the lounge and kitchen are open plan and all one room I had to decide on what accent colour to have in the kitchen, whether to go with purple or find something that matched but was different! I went for pink! Anyone who knows me will tell you it wasn’t just any pink and there are many I turned my nose up at but the kettle and toaster were perfect for the main colours and so I decided these cushions were ideal to make my dining chairs more comfortable! I have to say I like the look but they are a bargain price too!!! It would have been really hard to match the purple without it clashing, I could handle that problem with cushions and curtains but didn’t want to go there with kitchen utensils, even though now, everywhere I go there are pure and pink is quite hard to find!!!
Wilkinson Coffee Table (Wayfair)
Apart from my amazing high gloss white flooring this is one of my favourite purchases! I love the design of it really modern with sharp lines and as they picture had gloss flooring I knew it would fit in amazingly well!!! I haven’t decided what’s for the centre of it yet but there are some heart shaped slate coasters on there already lol
B&Q High Gloss Flooring
My absolute, total favourite thing in my opinion it’s completely making the overall look! I looked all over for this type of flooring and could not be more happier! I had it fitted by a local company PK Solutions – Paulie did an amazing job and I was entirely overwhelmed when I saw it with all the beading and from on!!! Well worth the outlay and it has generated several comments from many a building developer, customer care person and delivery guy!!! If you are in the north east and need flooring I can certainly recommend Paulie’s work!
I will show more pics and before and after shots when everything is finished below are a few fun shots because I am totally excited and you only buy your first house once but also because it’s fun to show the madness and the mess!!!
I know you’re often hard pushed to find a sales person in IKEA but so glad mum and I did it wAs hilarious us trying to lift all of these boxes and then push the trolleys!!!
