The start of the long journey of house reno's and the lounge room is complete...

Here are a few bad before shots... Colour scheme = 90s naf!

Unfortunately, what these shots doesn't show is the feature (?!) wall... A lovely, I guess, Tuscan inspired deep musk pink.  They meant well!  Just didn't quite get it. 

I have to say... the yellow wasn't too bad.  It's such a warm and welcoming colour - just doesn't suit our furniture.  This was when we first bought the place - we had tennants for the first 9 months or so.

Now... to the transformation...

Can you tell I'm a big fan of red, black and white?  Notice my Macrame?

The light fittings are my most recent addtion... thank fuck I finally got rid of those hideous old ones!  They were causing me cornea damage!

The Micko... chilling with a beer on Sat arvo.  Caufield Cup is on.... we placed a few wagers!

Hmmmm... Did I mention I'm a big fan of the White Stripes?  Perhaps only once or twice.  Their collectable handpainted nesting dolls are the main feature.  My pride and joy! 

The sideboard was a Ruddy stimulus package present to myself... I love, love, love it! 

Wine rack, courtesy of Mum... She went retro shopping for lamps as a Christmas gift a couple of years back, and while she came back short a couple of lamps, she'd pick up that little beauty.

The end!  Next room to tackle...

Well, it's a bit of a toss up!  I'd like it to be the hellish grey and pink kitchen, but I think we'll be putting an awning on our kickarse back deck!
