Well there has been a little of the 'renovations' bit happening (well being prepared for) lately.
We have no window furnishings to speak of in this house.
I love plantation shutters. I just love them.
We have 4 x windows that I want to get them put on.
they all pretty much look like this one:
This window is in our front room, so has the frosted glass at the bottom for a bit more privacy.
Ok, so Half Price Shutters came over today for a quote... $3140 for the 4 x windows! Now I knew they were going to be expensive... But JEEPERS!
We have another company coming tomorrow to quote also, Shutters Australia.
Can anyone give me any other recommendations for plantations? I really do want them, but just want good quality and at a great price.
This then brings me to the next issue...
Our bedroom. We don't know what window furnishing would suit and look best and we need a lovely new light fitting. But what?
Maybe a chandelier? But nothing over the top?
Buggy's room has 4 x down lights with a dimmer switch so we are going to leave her room for now and just pop the shutter in.
We also have pretty horrid lights in the living areas... Will post about that another day.
We have also had a painter come in and quote to get some walls re-painted... Especially the horrid red in the dining area! And all those that commented on the lovely bedroom colour? Well we are going to keep it pretty similar! We have decided we really like it too!
Next is the cabinet maker to come and put our laundry behind cupboards and also make us some storage/linen press out the back too...
Then it's also a security screen door and window for the front of the the house.
Phew... More money... But well worth it in the end.
All suggestions, recommendations and ideas are most welcome please!
