Things are going along slowly in the decorating department, but I did get my family room cushions made. Of course, I'd bought enough fabric to make four cushions, but once I arranged them, I decided I really needed five. And perhaps one for the lounge. But when I went back to get more fabric, the shop had completely run out. :(
Oh well, I'll keep an eye out. Meanwhile, I don't think it looks too sparse:
A week or so ago, we finally decided that we couldn't last a minute longer with our old, OLD mattress. It's more than 15 years old (I know!), well overdue for replacing. So we've taken the opportunity to ditch our timber Federation style bed as well. It was fine in our old house, but just didn't fit in here. A brand new mattress and base have been ordered, and I'm expecting a call to arrange delivery any day now.
I'm going to be selling this bed (not the mattress, it's only fit for the tip):
If anyone's in the market for a queen-size solid timber bed, still in good condition, just let me know. :)
