Our Lounge Room

Like many people, I'm sure, once we found out that we had a baby on the way getting our house organised suddenly became a big priority. One of the very first things we did was get rid of our old couches and replace them with a nice new modular sofa.

With our home being an older house, it isn't sealed as well as newer ones, it has funny vents in the walls and so dust and dirt easily gets in, and then settles in things like the carpet, and our cloth covered couches.

So it was out with the old, in with the nice, new, roomy, leather modular lounge.

Well, I then needed to fix up the cushions as they were a little manky and matched the old couch, not the new one, so on Friday I took a sick day from work (lets just call it a mental health day!) and made some new cushion covers.

There are still a few things we need to do in here, like sort out the stand next to the TV, especially once the baby becomes mobile and could get into the cables there, but for now I'm pretty happy with it!
