Shay was a bit upset that I didn't post any photos of my great new furniture collected from Ikea's As Is last night. That's because we hadn't actually built the flatpacks. This morning we remedied that.
Mr 17 and some of his helpers
The finished Varde drawers
Mr 17 was our chief builder, with my Bradley, Miss 15, and grandson and granddaughter as assistants. The kitchen in our new house is not small, but it is pretty old-fashioned with very few drawers. (Teeny tiny drawers! My cutlery doesn't even fit in a drawer!) I just love drawers in the kitchen so was pretty keen to get some drawers. I even had the space for them mapped out. I have been to Ikea several times to buy some drawers, but have come home empty-handed every time because these are really the best fit for my needs, and the worst fit for my bank account. Until last night that is.
White Liatorp round table
And the new table for our making/doing area. (You can see the old one in the background of the first photo. It's not really old, I bought it on February 29th. This was the table I really wanted, but couldn't afford. The "old" table is upstairs in the rumpus room now, waiting for someone to do some homework on it!) Of course, I don't have any chairs yet. (Any minute now...) I am lucky to have a houseful of professional furniture builders! They built, I sewed. Yes, more work on my drunkard's path pot holder, which has morphed into a table topper for my new Liatorp table. Not finished yet, but any minute now...
