Ok, so I asked and you answered. Here’s an update on my first week as a home owner!
I’m so excited about finally creating something of my own! I’ve been renting for so many years, it feels great to own something again. I can finally do what I want, put money into it and feel like it’s worth it!
This week started in the hallway. I’ve only painted the walls here, since everything else is new and how I like it. Easy!
Of course I will have to buy furnitures for this room and the connected walk-in, but I’m still unsure of what I want, so I’ve decided to leave it for now.
Room two was the bedroom. Probably the room I was the most excited about, because I had such clear image in my head of how I wanted this room to look. I don’t want to share too much at this point, but at least this way you get a feeling of where I’m heading.
That said, I looove the double glass doors! This means I can wake up in the morning, stepping straight out onto the balcony for my morning coffee… Seriously considering keeping my Nespresso machine in my bedroom from now on!
The living room is still very much in progress. I’m waiting for the sofa to be delivered on April 1st (oh-oh… Don’t let it be a joke!)
I should probably let you know, I ended up changing the colour and fabric on the sofa. So the brown and the dark grey are both out… Sorry to everyone telling me I had to go for one or the other colour! I went for a third option.
The change of mind on the sofa also meant a change of paint in this room. Therefore I’m now considering waiting to paint this until my sofa is here. Just so I can see it all together. What do you think?
Since this picture was taken I’ve installed sun blinds in the living room windows, finalised the dining area, moved aaaaall my boxes out of storage and had lamps installed. Last night I even spent 3,5 hours putting drawers together (hate!), as a result of a 4hrs long shopping trip to Ikea on Thursday. I love Ikea. I just don’t love putting the furnitures together when I get home.
Today I’ve emptied my storage container for all my belongings, on my own! I saw it as a great workout, now my back don’t necessarily agree…
But the storage is empty, my apartment is full and the day of moving inn is getting closer! Maybe I can move inn already this coming weekend?!
Until then, I will try to keep you posted. But I find myself so excited, I forget documenting the things I do, I just want it done. Now.
