I've been up to so much in the last week, mostly not interesting but one thing I have been working on is my living room. As my dining room get's less and less full of stock from my business I closed in July, I have now managed to move my dinette into that room, I can't work on that yet as there is still lots of stock in there but what I have managed to do is work on my living room, it is transformed and I love it!
First up I've been looking for a 50s sideboard or cupboard to convert to a TV cabinet, my budget is low and 50s stuff seems to be in 'fashion' at the moment so it's taken some looking for find something in my budget! Finally this week, I bid on a 1950s g plan sideboard and because the seller was ending it at a strange time and wanted collection within 24 hrs, I won it for £15! Yes £15! These things can go for silly money so I am very happy. It was very dry to I treated it with some Teak Oil and now it looks fabulous, here you go!
I am so beyond happy with it! It looks so sleek and fabulous and all for £15!!! My only problem is where to put all the bloody wires, I think I'm going to hang the extension leads on the wall as sadly underneath it looks like this
Still I'll resolve it.
Then onto my cocktail area, I'm so happy with this. I was lucky enough to pick up another total bargain in the same week, a 50s record cabinet which actually only holds about 1/4 of our record collection but in reality it's probably all we'll listen too. So now I have a little area in the living room for cocktail cabinets, my fabulous gold glitter cocktail chair, records and everything! I need a little cupboard for the record player and stereo but hey with the way my luck is going it won't be long!
I'm so happy with it!
I've rearranged a couple of shelves and I've put my ugly but very functional Ikea CD cabinet elsewhere in the living room.
Do you like my tiki candle holders?!!
Ah bliss! Anyway, it's my birthday tomorrow, so today I am having a bit of a cocktail afternoon/evening in my lovely new cocktail area whilst watching old movies. Bliss
I'll take pictures along the way, til I get too tipsy he he!
