Ta da! We got the wardrobe into the bedroom! (Sorry about the lighting in this photos it's been a dismal day here in London!) After quite a bit of help from friends and neighbours and gradual dismantling we managed to get it up the stairs (in pieces) and then re-assemble it in the bedroom!
We're very pleased with it - finally a space to hang all of our clothes!
There have been changes afoot in the sitting room too, as an impromptu visit to the local architectural salvage yard resulted in two pairs of shutters. Perfect for the sitting room window.
I think the surround that we constructed to hold the shutters could do with staining down a shade or two darker or perhaps we'll paint it to the same colour as the sitting room wall so that it blends in...
We also had some shelves put in the sitting room to house a few books, maybe a lamp and perhaps a few pretty things?
And the kittens have not been left out! They have received a snazzy tweed day bed with goes under the stairs in the dining room. Here's Ivy trying it our for size:
But it would seem that the dining room chairs have still not lost their appeal!
