let's just pretend....


...that I do still sew ;-)
but really I am now an official box un-packer-er
 yesterday's box contained the purple sewing chair (from made.com) ...note the good use of felt samples for make-shift castors whilst I wait for the real ones to come from eBay.... we're slightly terrified of ruining the lovely wooden floorboards of our rented house (and losing our hefty deposit in the process!) so we're being v.e.r.y. careful....
today's boxes held the new dining room table (from oakfurniture land) we truly wanted an old farmhouse table with mix & match old chairs but we didn't want to wait, wait, wait to find the perfect thing, we found a few 'nearly' OK tables but they were all painted (rather badly) and mucho money, so we went with new....we were surprised that Oak Furniture Land had something for us, but this is ace - and Yes.  I did walk round the showroom and knock on everything , just like they do on TV :-)

Your new home looks lovely! We've used Oak Furniture Land for our tv bench and a nest of tables - they've got some nice stuff! Maria x
