Day 9 of #myhousethismonth is ‘side table’. There’s not a side table in this house that I would care to share with you since they are nearly all piled high with books, magazines, empty glasses, tv remote controls and all other manner of family-life detritus. So, I’ve taken a little licence with this one and gone for the bureau which is on one ‘side’ of our hallway. This is one of the few areas of the house that is permanently insta-worthy (except when it needs a darn good dust); and for the sake of Insta-reality I’ve also included a photo of the sideboard on the other side of the hallway which constantly features items that are leaving/arriving in to the house (sometimes these things have been leaving/arriving for weeks...) #instaworthy#instareality#sidetable#bureau#sideboard#moosehead#wallpaper#littlegreene#littlegreenewallpaper#shangrilascent#everydaydetritus
Day 19 of #myhousethismonth is #table In the interests of ‘keeping it real’ this is what our dining table looks like at this precise moment. It features my laptop, piles of paper that I accumulated while doing my tax return on Monday and have yet to rehome, a tube of hand cream, a pile of coasters (which we never use), a jigsaw I gave hubby for Christmas, Darling Child’s book bag, water bottle and PE kit dumped as soon as he got in from school, hubby’s laptop, an empty Tupperware box (my fault, I scoffed the Tiffin that was inside and then abandoned the box), a half-finished glass of Vimto (definitely hubby’s, can’t stand the stuff myself), a vase of tulips, and the latest copy of HGTV magazine which hubby’s clients very kindly brought over from the USA for me and which hubby brought home from Paris last night after his business trip (he’s such a global jet setter 🙄) The photo makes the table look really small, even though it comfortably seats eight; it was a bargain £35 from the local auction house - can’t argue with that! #lawrencesauctioneers#diningtable#darkwood#everydaydetritus#dumpingground#laptop#hgtv#hgtvmagazine#taxreturn#jigsawpuzzle#tulips#springflowers#tggreen
