The sofa I had in this house before, is now in a friend's house, and they literally finished off their extension around it. They said if I wanted it back I would have to take out a door and a whole door frame, so I left it !
My second option was to buy one on the never never. Buy it now and pay for it later, which seems like never at first and then goes on forever and ever.
I couldn't get the credit, as they obviously thought that I wouldn't pay for it EVER !
Then I had a call from my BFF saying she had bought it for me !
I have mentioned Pandy before, still the bestest friend in the world - ever !
I have to pay her back of course, but that won't be never, hopefully it will be in the not too distant future (I can't keep the rhyming up any more !).
It's just cream with buttoning on the arms and below the seat. It came with two of the cushions below, which are ok, but I'll make some more sometime.
It's not practical at all, with a dog, so mostly I keep it covered in throws.
This was the living room when I first got the keys back, you can see the very worn carpet in the middle.
Now it looks a little better.
You will probably recognise most things from before, at the old geezers place.
I love the tongue and groove wall that we put up when I lived here before, and the slimline cupboard behind the table, that houses the electric metre.
I don't think I have shown this barley twist table before, but I'm happy that it didn't sell on ebay, because it fits in pretty well here.
On the other side of the room, the cupboards were here when I bought the house, and we put the floating shelves up ourselves.
I just got my log-burner back today actually, with the help of my brother and the old geezer, and I need to take the plug off that lamp and feed it down the back and wire it up again as there is a socket in the cupboard.
This chair also came from Pandy, well her garage. It's in really good condition, though not covered to my taste, so I may just try and make a slip cover for it someday (don't hold your breath).
The view from living room to dining room and then kitchen.
The first job I really need to tackle is fitting some doors to this cabinet, that we never finished. I know what I want, it's just a case of how to achieve it.
Hopefully this won't be a never ever project but a someday very soon project.
