If a photographer came to our house, I think all they would get is a huge bunch of 'before' pictures. One day, when we have money and time (haha) we might work towards an 'after' picture. I don't mind putting it out there. We're young, we don't have a lot of cash to splash around, and the things in our home do not look like what you would find in a display village. But it's home.
Well here are some more before's:
This is creamy coloured coffee table given to us by Daniel's Brother. it's not in the best condition, but I am confident I can do something cute with it. I'm planning something pinterest inspired, it will probably involve mod podge, scrapbook paper and paint. We'll see. We cant afford to buy anymore furniture, so as soon as the final set of couches arrive, it will be all diy and hand me downs from here on out.
This very sweet and charming chair was an offering from Daniel's Mum. It's no in amazing condition but there's something very sweet about it and I just love it. I think it will look right at home once we have the couches for the living room.
Daniel's Brother also brought over their old dining set in his ute. Again, it's not in great condition, but it's so damn cute. I love the burnt look it has. I'm not sure what we'll do with it, but I again I'm envisaging some kind of pinterest inspired re-do. For now we are just glad to have some kind of dining table, mainly because it will off set my urge to go out and buy a dining table. So the final decision was to have a hand me down until we are ready to buy what we really want. One day I would really love a big farmhouse style table and pair it with some ultra modern chairs.
