Anyway, my next port of call was my lounge room. It's the most lived in room in the house, and if the state of the carpet is anything to go by, generally the room that gets the most trashed. Honestly, when we decide to sell the house the carpet in THIS room has to be completely replaced. It's undergone all sorts of horrible stains....from milk, to food, to toilet-training-toddlers peeing and pooping everywhere and more horribly...to projectile vomit stains. There is nothing for it but to basically tear it up and start again, but at the moment, while I still have a toddler not yet toilet trained, this carpet has to stay. Sooo....(sorry to put you off your lunch)......to continue....
This bookshelf above has followed me from house to house to house to house (I've moved 16 times in my life so it's looking a little worse for wear), but was completely over stuffed with books and there were a few large scrappy looking folders on the bottom shelf, which hold all the paperwork I have to keep (you know, things like birth certificates, immunisation records etc). I moved all the folders to my linen cupboard (out of sight completely) and rearranged the books so they are now a lot neater. In the meantime I had made a few more little purchases from Kmart at ridiculously cheap prices to decorate this now much tidier space.
here on my bathroom revamp was my introduction to my new found copper obsession). I will find something to put in it no doubt sometime soon.
Oh...more copper. This is unlike anything I ever thought I would have ever bought in my life but the triangles in this....um....thing....extended on from the triangly theme that started in my bathroom revamp. It's actually a candle holder, but as you will see, it suits the mirror I bought. The little black clock is new too! (all Kmart)
The picture frame was bought separately and from my local chemist. They have great gifts and this was on sale. I'd been eyeing it off for a little while, and although there isn't a picture in it yet, I think it's really pretty.
In the opposite corner to the bookshelf is my little desk, which I've had for a while. It's my 'office'. Normally I sit my laptop here and do all my writing and blogging from this spot but it's easy enough to put the computer away in the cupboard when I'm not working and have a pretty corner. More flowers from my garden in a white teapot that was a wedding gift, a Kikki K. notepad, Ikea chair, a little fox pen holder and all the picture framing in my house has been done by my Dad. He's an AWESOME picture framer, he used to have a business in Melbourne, but now works part time at it out of his workshop on his farm.
So this was my second attempt at decorating. I will continue on........
