Interior update

We really haven't had much time to think about the interior. The Financial sales have come and gone, all i brought was a new doona cover. Will save up for the boxing day sales and hope to get a bargain then!

My EOFYS purchase from adairs

Saving all the spare cash to make sure the outside things get done, still one boundary fence to go, then the grass, then paving and stones. Might leave the plants until a bit later as its not urgent.

So keen to get some nice plantation shutters in, i have got some quotes and its just a matter of working out when i can go ahead and order them, if budgeting is tight we will put up with the blankets for a little while longer. I have my heart set on getting them across the front windows. 

The rest of the rooms still have sheets up. All part of the joys of having a new house is dealing with unsightly blankets and sheets for a few months. 

We are going for the minimalist look and still have plain light bulbs for our light fittings - some might call that trendy lol - honestly though they are the last thing on  my mind, so no rush for those.

I have had my laundry measured up and keen to see that go in, a few hiccups with the planning, the size of the bench that will fit int he space is 2cm too short for a 45l tub. not to sure i could of been more particular in the planning of my laundry and requested the door to be 2cm further to the right so it didn't impact the bench. Not a huge deal, just means i will have to get used to soaking things in buckets. as i will now only get a 30L tub instead of 45L.

The laundry is set to be installed around my birthday! what a great bday present - hhhmmmm some might call it weird that im getting excited about getting a laundry as a birthday present! but i honestly couldn't think of anything better! We need all the storage we can get!

We got a bed for the spare room. Purchased from Domayne during the financial sales. Im quickly falling in love with white furniture now that i have a lot of white in the house, its so fresh and leaves the room looking bright and clean. Will post pics of it in the room when its all set up properly.

No further furniture has been brought, and with the young kids around im really in no hurry, they quickly can ruin new furniture items, so the longer i wait the less likely they will ruin it on me!

the furniture we had originally brought from the old house fits into the living space perfectly.
