spring decorating

I went shopping yesterday. I now own - but it is not in my place yet - a new 3-seater chair, 2 tub chairs and 4 suede dining chairs. They're arriving in 2 -6 weeks. In that time I will get the old lounge suite out of the way.

My old lounge has been with me for a good 15 years. My mum purchased it when I first moved out of home to Tasmania and into my first Unit. It was over 5 years old, maybe closer to 10, when I got it. It wasn't bad - but it was never brilliant.

One housemate I had got excited one day and did a Tom Cruise, although we didn't know at the time it would be done by him on International television. As a result of the excited jumping the frame was broken. It had a beautiful dip halfway along the couch. My back never thought it was beautiful. I have put up with it for too long and yesterday I did something about it.

As a result I have decided to revamp my entire living space. I have a HUGE and very unattractive wall unit. It is 6 feet tall and looks like it is from the 1970s (but actually 1980s). It dominates the room and I have to decorate around it. So with my new lounge etc coming, I want a new TV cabinet and a couple of smaller display cupboards which I should be able to maneuver around the room. I am going to move the dining table into the lounge area (it is big enough) with the suede chairs. The old kitchen table is coming back to the kitchen.

I have other plans too but I wont document them yet.......they are under construction.

New furniture is good. I'm trying to be less materialistic, but I can't help but want my home to reflect who I am in its appearance. I hope you find what you're looking for.

That is great news! I love buying new furniture. It's tough sometimes say goodbye to the old stuff but having something new and yours is great too.
