So it looks like I have finally finished furnishing my living room thanks to an impromptu nip into the local charity shop back at my "homehome" in Surrey. I went back to see my sister and pups and before we went to the cinema I quickly visited one of the British Heart Foundation shops. I used to always swing by when I was around but never actually bought anything from there before. Until now that is. Although I did once spot a 1920s Singer sewing machine in the window but I had no room for it at the time. It was beautiful though.
Well, now I'm a happy girl because the flat is really coming together. I'll do more posts on the furnishings and decorating for sure. But for now here are my awesome new additions!
I will take some better photos once the pieces are at mine. The inside of the wardrobe is super cute. Cannot wait to sit it next to my Art Deco dresser in my bedroom. They're going to look such a pair. The sideboard will take pride of place in my living room along with my other pieces. The glass front display cabinet might go in the corridor as I already have another display cabinet in the living room but we shall see. Or I could even have it in my bedroom and replace my old tall display cabinet which houses my handbags?? Hmm... The dilemma. But I think I will do something with it for certain. Maybe paint it or just sand it down and re-varnish. Either way I think they will all look amazing alongside my green velvet sofa!
Once I am happy with the placement of all my furniture I can start arranging all my paintings and prints onto the walls too. Because you just can't do one before the other. Not if you don't know where the tall or short pieces will be sitting lol. This is all too exciting and I may just pass out now. Forgive me if you don't hear from me for a while...
