~~Looking back and thinking EKKSS~~

Hey everyone... Do you ever look back at old Images and pictures and think to yourself....what the heck was I thinking??? Ive been doing that the past few days as Ive been putting all our photo's onto discs to protect them for the future.

I found pictures from around our home and though I'd share some with you... When we built this house we had miss matched furniture as you do...alot of wood Baltic coloured stains. The front sitting room very quite modern with a Yellow (EEKKKS ) yes Yellow Couch and a silver TV unit and yukky Coffee table. That's pretty much it, not much atmosphere..just a room... hmmmmmm  Ive been searching for a picture and cannot find one, but the room was BLAHHHH.....

We have done some major changes to our Dining room, originally was a window in the space but we removed it and added french doors....LOVE LOVE.... The wall was a terrible green colour..not sure what I was thinking there... we had a colonial type table unpainted..another EEKKKSSS..... Shall share with you some pictures...


See what I mean about the Green wall and the Dining set....eeekkkksss and all the clutter...ahhhhhhhh

Much of the Clutter gone here..thankfully..green wall was still a feature....boy O boy MAJOR EKKKSS

ahhhhh MUCH better.......New Dining Set..French Doors...Pale Blue wall...NO CLUTTER...

I have since replaced this set with a Large Round Table and 4 matching Chairs all white of course!!! Was looking for a picture but couldn't find one.... The Mannequin still stands in the Corner but the drawers you see have been moved elsewhere..

Have run out of time..shall share some more with you soon!!!

Hope you have a wonderful last day of the week 2morrow!!

We have out Market Weekend this week.... Sunbury Sat and Gisborne Sunday...WOWZERS!!

  3. Hi Mandii, I don't think it looks as bad as you say, I love your second pic,with all the clutter and also love your 3rd pic. Yes our tastes do change over time. Before I went all shabby I had a mediterranean look with blue lounges and terracotta pots and the table I still have with terracotta tiles on the top. Before that I had apricot faux leather lounges with black furniture but I remember how much I loved it then!! Have to laugh about it now! As much as I love the shabby look now I know it's not for everyone but as long as I'm happy that's the main thing! Have fun with it! take care, Maryann.

  6. Ha ha... just laughing after Lucinda's comment. We had the apricot (hand-me-down) lounge too. Must have been the early 90's.
    It's funny looking back. Thanks for sharing the early photos Mandii.
