Damp / Dining Room

You know when I posted a picture of our un-rolling rug yesterday? Well after I’d posted it, I was sitting at my computer looking at the picture and then looking at the scene in real life, and I noticed something… …it’s our old friend damp! AGAIN.  At first I thought it was a smudge on my computer screen, or even a smudge on the wall from grubby mits, but no, it’s cold and feels a […]

Rug-ged

I’m going to talk rugs again. I’m sorry but that’s what happens when you have exposed wood floor boards and live in the North West. Since we’ve had the floors refinished we’ve been trying not to be too precious of them. They are actually  the original floor boards to the house and it was built in 1902, so they are very much in their twilight years. It’s hard not to worry about them like you […]

Chairs are here! I’m in love with them in a weird and creepy way! Not only do they look amazing, but they are really comfy too!  They arrived in two parts, but we just had to screw the legs on to the seat which took no time at all! They feel really sturdy, although I keep telling Ben to sit down on them softly because I’m scared he will hurt them.  We went for the […]

Just bought four of these babies in Sky Blue for the dining room table. What was the rubbish I was talking about ‘waiting and making sure they were what we want’? Christ I’m impatient. We were always going to come back to them though, I know it (ahem). £207 for four chairs including delivery. Not exactly cheap but I’ve always loved the original Eames chair so it’s a bit of love struck madness. In other news my […]

So we went ahead and bought a dining table last week and it arrived yesterday. We ended up going with No Name table from John Lewis (as mentioned in this post) because he was on sale down from £299 to £199 with free delivery. (He’s no longer available so I can’t link to the site which is annoying and ruining my link flow, but here’s what he looked like). So anyway, he arrived and it […]

Rejoice!

Damp / Dining Room

I’M SO HAPPY. Trevor the damp man came over this morning and told me it’s not damp. We won’t have to have the wall ripped out or re-plastered or anything horrid like that. He thought it was just some small holes in the pointing outside (pointing is the seams in between the bricks of the house where the concrete goes FYI) and he filled them with some putty stuff for FREE. What a man. To be honest […]

It’s Curtains

Curtains / Dining Room / Ikea / Living Room / Picture Post

The reason we discovered the effing damp in our dining room last night, was because I was about to go and put up our new curtains when I noticed it. Due to the mini meltdown that was had following the damp discovery I’ve still yet to take ANY pictures of the dining room, with curtains, without curtains, with paint, without paint…you see where I’m going here. I do, on the other hand, have pictures of […]
