Lounge Before and After

After a long hiatus I’m back with a couple snaps of our lounge/living room. This small space is a happy mismatch of all things old and new: Inherited furniture, charity shop finds and DIY efforts.

The days of jackhammering the floor (due to a gaping hole on the screed we discovered after pulling the old carpet out) seem like a lifetime away and now we get to enjoy a space that looks like us, in all its mismatchiness. Even with the extra labour that this blasted hole caused us, the lounge was by far the easiest of all of the rooms to complete: Self levelling screed (that we chickened out of doing ourselves), paint and new skirting boards before finishing with a new carpet.

The after pictures are looking a bit grainy since I chose the rainiest and most overcast day to photograph – so just a couple of snippets for now.

Ps. Kinda wish I would have turned that cushion the right way around! 🙂
