New Year…New IKEA Settee.
Do you remember…we had a change around last year and I never got to post about it…you see Christmas came sooo fast!…but you did kinda see a peek of it all in the Chrimbo pictures.
But now we have gone and changed the sitting room around, all over again…Well our armchairs were at breaking point…the Laura Ashley blue one had a leg broken and it was supported by a wooden candle box lol!
So we got rid of that one and also put the white covered sturdier chair and the yellow table into the dining room! not sure whether I like them in there yet! but when the Bootsales start again I am sure I will find something better!
As you can see from above, we decided to paint the ‘Ugly’ retro sideboard white…and I now love it!…I have decorated it with some torn out pictures of roses and a doggy postcard…all I have done here is stick them on with coloured drawing pins lol! But I love the look!
I also have my HAPPY NEW YEAR plaque up…because it is still the New Year…and I am Happy! lol!
So we have a ‘New’ 3 seater settee…as you can see from these pictures…we ordered it from IKEA as it matches our other settee…we did debate whether to get two armchairs instead, to replace the other two…but the problem was, we needed an extra seat, so we could all sit comfortably and cosily in the sitting room as a family together…
So with the added large footstool (which we bought in a local Charity Shop for £15.00) result! we only had to buy a new white cover for it…we also bought a new white cover for our original two seater so the whites would match and voila!…
We also moved the pew in from the dining room, which fits in front of the radiator lovely…I hate radiators on show! and have covered them with material in the past…but have now realised how much more heat comes out of them when they are not covered! hahaha! doh!
You might find it a bit odd, the fact that we have put the new sofa in front of the fireplace…but it was the only way that looked ok, as it completely took over the room on the pew wall! and as well it makes the room so much more cosier and well!..we just love it like it is 🙂
This is the side I don’t really show…as usually I like Telly’s hidden, but now, if you sit on the 3 seater, you have a brilliant view of the TV!…and we do rather have a LARGE TV!
We have also added this lovely shag pile rug in blue, which Max absolutely loves lazing around on…infact I think, he thinks we bought it for him only!
I hope you like our new settee and new sitting room arrangement as much as we do…
Please do join my followers, as I will be posting more about my little English cottage and how you can fit alot of ‘stuff’ into really small spaces with ‘Happy’s’ unique techniques.
Bye for now
