Last year if you are regular readers of either this blog or family and parenting blog The Oliver’s Madhouse you will know that I undertook a mammoth decorating mission starting in our bedroom and leading on to every other room of our 4 bedroom home … it was back breaking and painful and all while I was carrying my 3rd Child.
OK not the brightest time to decorate a house but for some reason I seemed to be swamped with urges to declutter and organise, it was like ‘nesting’ but on a mammoth scale.
Although we got the big stuff sorted like carpets and wall coverings, there are aspects in every room that still have still not been completed.
Joshua’s & Jacobs rooms both need more storage for toys, the cupboard under the stairs in the kitchen is a nightmare with usable storage and needs addressing and the living room needs some new sofas and living room furniture but the first room on our decorating mission although has wonderful storage now it was missing a key piece of furniture … A decent bedroom chair.
I acquired the one I have been using from a Facebook selling page and at best it could be described as an office chair but if we are being honest it was scrap metal with fabric.
Although my husband is no great interior designer he has been moaning since last July at the state of the chair but with having no other option to sit and do my hair and makeup we have been putting up with it.
So after ousting my maternity clothing over the last month and reorganising the remaining clothing in my wardrobe I received a very exciting delivery last week ….
My much wanted bedroom chair!
Recently I learnt that one of my favourite clothing shops (Matalan) have a home and interiors version called MatalanDirect.com and they had exactly what I had been looking for, a reasonably priced, classic looking bedroom chair called Grace in beige.
It came assembled minus the legs which were super easy to put on and I can finally say my room is complete and it’s a proper grown up room for the first time ever!
In light of my efforts decluttering I am off to turn all the clothes hangers the wrong way round in the wardrobes … yep it really does work at seeing what is never worn and it might go to prove my point with hubster that he has 25 t-shirts too many!
