My two boys have gone for a little holiday to my parents house for a few days.. I miss them of course but the peace and quiet is so nice, I may just be enjoying it a little too much!
So on the weekend we finally got our bookcases attached to the wall and the mouldings put on, I am so happy with the result.. When I say we- I really should say that a cabinetmaker did it for us- my husband , bless him good at a lot of things DIY not one of them..
I nearly gave up on them at one point, while trying to track down crown moulding for the top ( I assumed you could get it at Bunnings ) I came across so many unwilling to help me a**holes- just downright rude and not interested. Anyway eventually I found a great cabinet maker locally who also solved my crown moulding problem-skirting board instead..
Anyway I still have lots of gaps to fill in the shelf- we have gone from having nowhere to display things to me going around the house stealing from other spots..
This is the first room you come to when you walk into our house and for 3 years there has been a train table and drying racks full of clothes- this makes a nice change.. All I have to do is find the perfect rug and its done... and keep an eye my husband, he is scheming to put up a flat screen up in there..
I am off to enjoy the peace while it lasts.. the two little whirlwinds arrive back home tomorrow !
