my project is almost complete. it didnt take as long as i initially thought it would. ceh...target of next october konon.
hubby and i carried the tv cabinet from the living room into the family room. yup, we carried them ourselves. hubby was worried i couldnt carry it, he was surprised i helped to carry 2 of the 3 units. i told him, if i want to do this, i will tell my body that i can do this (if only the same applies to exercise...) it was painful, seriously painful. the darn thing was heavy...but we managed. i actually calculated the width of the room wrongly so we couldnt put all 3 units next to each other. one had to be separated and i asked hubby to place it near the door. looking at the separated unit, i decided...i dont need a chest of drawer. i can place the boys clothes on these shelves. so i managed to cut my budget.
we bought pillows during our trip to one utama during the weekend. now all that is left are carpets and curtains. i also brought down amir's toys. i want him to play here, rather than in his room. now his room will be mainly for sleep and for studies (well, more for colouring, at his age).
so here's how the room looks like...sans the carpet and curtains. the tv cabinet, brought in from the living room.
amir's toys. baru bawak masuk dah berselerak.
how the living room looks now, without the cabinet. i planned to put a built-in cabinet/bookshelf where the tv cabinet was. but i really like the way hubby placed the furniture. it makes the room look more inviting and spacious. so my plan now is to move the 2 wing chairs i put under the stairs and build a cabinet where the wing chairs are now, instead. but that's not anytime in the near future...
