House Progress VIII

Finally a picture of a sneak peek of the new rug, The Chair and a cabinet (IKEA PS) to keep some of the cords at bay. (Some of them are still sneaking out the back. Sigh...) Slowly coming together - a few more things crossed off this week and a few more to share next week.

Question: are these updates incredibly tedious?! Please let me know if you just want to resume normal programming :)

To-do list: (I'll be posting this weekly as a personal reminder of where we're up to - please feel free to ignore or to play along). Obviously much of this will cost a lot, so we'll do it over time, starting with the most urgent.

Get a new plug for the sink-
Line cupboards with non-adhesive mats-
Possibly get an eat-in table and chair or a centre butcher's block/workspace. (Going to wait a bit on this one)

Butler's Pantry
-Line shelves with non-adhesive mats-
Maybe get curtain to block the pantry from the kitchen? (or go crazy with a beaded curtain?) (Mixed responses to this last time! I'm leaving it in just for the record!)

-Put up shower curtain cotton liners-
Think about towel warmer/dryer? (Arrived! Toasty, toasty bathroom with dry towels).

-Buy a sideboard to house linen and to use as more bench space for the bathroom.
