Home at last!

It's been a while since my last post.  Firstly we went on holiday to the snow for a week.  NOT an ideal time, but when I booked in January, I hadn't counted on the weather being so bad, and assumed we would be finished the house.  We moved in on the 11th August and have been crazy busy since.  Not finished yet, but almost....  Our bedroom upstairs should be finished within the next week.  And then.... the pool.  Yey!

Front of house - we even got the front garden in!

The (rather large) living area. 
Its a little cavernous at the moment.  I have a few ideas for the other end of the room.  Still thinking ...........

I love my new kitchen *sigh* 
The splashbacks, ceiling fans, air con and intercom system are still to be installed, so still a bit to do here.  I really need to do something with those bar stools.  They are solid timber and a great shape.  I was considering painting the legs white and stripping back the dark stain on the seat to make it lighter.  Suggestions welcome.

The dining chairs have a story...
 I was dropping off some old stuff  (so annoying when you realised you have packed something that you really don't need) at the local charity shop, and spotted these chairs.  OMG!  Love at first site, and a silly, silly price.  They are Tasmanian oak and direct from the sixties.  I have plans to restore and reupholster them.  Still deciding on the fabric.   They came with the not-so-fabulous table at the back of the room.  I have plans for that too...

Nearly there!!

Posting in my ipad in the car.  Sorry about the quality.
 We move in next week!Kitchen/dining.  I decided to put the flooring on the face of the island bench.  Really please with how it looks.

Dining room.  We always knew it would be big, but...WOW!  I suggested to husband that we need a large piece of furniture for this end of the room.  Maybe a piano?  He was NOT impressed (none of us play the piano BTW)

All render is on.  Now we just need paint.
