Around the house...

Andy and I spent the weekend beautifying (or should I say - Ikea-fying) our apartment. We both love the area we live in, I've been here for 4 years now. What we don't like is the size of our apartment. For the minuscule amount of rent we're fortunate enough to pay, we put up with the size. I don't have any before shots. Those of you that have been to my apartment will hopefully see the improvements.

I HATE the kitchen in this place. It is soooooo small. And the floor is falling apart. It used to have a fold down table (basically where the wire shelving is). On the weekend we came up with the awesome idea of taking off the table (which we can put back when we move out) and rearranging. We've now got a lot more space in the kitchen; floor, storage and bench space, thanks to our new Ikea trolley.

We also did a bit of a makeover on Andy's computer area. We bought a new desk. It used to be piled high with boxes too. So much nicer.

The rest of the place we spruced up a while back, but I'll show it off anyway. Excuse the vacuum cleaner and the washing, LOL. You slide open the middle doors for the TV.

Next on the agenda will be the bedroom. I would love a new bed!


  1. Looks good! I hate our kitchen too it is bigger than yours but a really silly design with this big basically unusable section in the corner, I could probably make it more usable with some rearranging but I am too lazy at the moment.

  2. Looks great! Did you get the tv cabinet / shelving unit from Ikea too? I love it all :)

  3. Looks very good! You guys are so clever! x
