It’s been a bit quiet on the blog lately, sorry about that! However not only am I back at work (that’s a whole different post!) but we are living in a building site.
We decided to decorate our living room so at the moment I have limited internet connection not to mention the fact I have no carpet or sofa in the living room, which is why it has been so quiet. Never fear though, I’m around!
Our living room is coming along nicely, though I now know I hate decorating. I can’t cope with the mess. I have pretty much been living in diy stores on my time off!
After living in our house for 5 years it was about time we decorated the living room however it was just a thought of doing it, as we live in a bungalow and you have to walk through the living room to get to the bathroom and bedrooms so it was always going to be disruptive. I just never knew how disruptive.
However the one thing that really puts me off decorating is the cost! Everything these days seem to be so expensive. Luckily for us though we picked a good time of the year to do it as there are lots of sales and discounts on at the moment, so it’s a great time to pick up a bargain. We started buy selecting our sofa and its pretty much snowballed from there.
We’ve gone for a chocolate, cream and red theme which is super easy to find accessories for, it’s just matching up the colours. Still got quiet a few things to get though. I have been using my catalogue account to purchase the smaller items in the sales. One thing I have learnt to do though is shop around, there are some great bargains you can get online as long as you look around. So many stores are looking for business at the moment so there are great discount vouchers to be found!
We’ve almost finished with just the painting, carpet and sofa to do (not to mention the accessories!) Once its done I’ll be sharing the before, during and after pictures!
