I'd really like to paint soon, but it's going to be a big job-lots of chipped and flaking paint on the trim, and the walls need some work-some filling and sanding. Being old paint we need to check if it's lead too.

|Looking back from the window|
|And from the other corner|
I think the cushions were from Adairs a year or so back, the blanket is a beautiful mohair one that used to be my Mamas, the couch and recliner is from Freedom, my grandpa Maxie made the little bookcase.
The rug is a hand me down-the only piece of carpet in the house. The chest was a gumtree find-it's beautiful old hardwood, and the tv is on a coffee table that we got cheap from someone who does up furniture.
|Here you can actually see the coffee table/chest|
|Before the island went in|
We are looking into some floating shelves between the window and tv, and putting some art and photos onto the wall behind the couch.
