Damien & I both love homes with character, we definitely aren't the modern type, so we lucked out finding a place with loads of it! Beautiful moulding in the lounge and the bedroom, an ornamental fireplace, unique storage cupboards, and gorgeous polished hardwood floors. We were very gratefult to Damien's parents for (1) putting us up for 2 months while we apartment hunted and (2) for the furniture they gave us. It all worked out quite well and the only pieces we needed to buy were couches and a side table. We could still use a coffee table and a tv stand (the one from the side of the road will do us for now!). I am finding lots of decorative items at the Salvation Army and other thrift stores for great bargains (thanks to my mum for teaching me to bargain shop!). We are lucky to have 3 within walking distance!
Anyways enough chat, I have posted some pics for you! Enjoy...

|Damien made this ladder! We used it as a make-shift bedside table, and it has sort of stuck!|
|Damien surprised me with this cute chalkboard from Typo! It's just a temporary until I can make or find a cool vintage one!|
