See I had picked up Maureen & Charles' two Ikea chairs that I just LOVE and decided to put a sign up in the apt mailroom to see if anyone would want my 1970s huge hide-a-bed, armchair, ottoman and the older large 19" TV and the previous caretake came to see it and took the lot!!! WOOHOOIE!!! So today they came to pick it up and I was helping with doors but honest not any heavy lifting. BUT STUPID ME - there was no room in the elevator for me so I rushed down the stairs and into the hallway arriving before the elevator BUT wiped out on some water and fell flat on my BUTT and just missed klonking my head on the cement floor!!! Guess I was a sight for the guys getting out of the elevator. AND to add insult to injury they didn't even need my help!!!
Anyways, here's a HORRIBLE before picture of my living room cum sewing area in front of the TV and large windows. You can just see parts of the ugly brown plaid couch under all the sewing stuff!!!
Now here is my NEW living room from the TV corner minus all the sewing stuff! AWESOME EH? Now I really have the incentive to sort and clear out that sewing room so I can actually get it laid out as I've planned on paper! Eventually when Ikea arrives in Winnipeg I'll purchase new covers for these chairs and probably get one of their ottomans in matching fabric.
And here is the layout from the bathroom corner which also shows the cleared out hallway too. Now that square end table in the hallway will be fixed one of these days and used as a coffee table for the time being but whenever I get the smaller recliner it'll be between the two areas and that round table gone.
There is like FOUR feet between the computer and the sitting area - WOW!!! No more skirting around and knocking anything off the desk or pulling the pincushion off the armchair!!! And maybe I'll get a half circle carpet for that area or depending on the costs just a nice rectangle as I don't like chairs moving on hardwood floors.
