Hitting the Shops

Last week was my final week of school holidays and during the past few weeks I have made a lot of purchases for the new house. I purchased the following

Beacon Lighting -" Yvette" 500mm Drum Pendant with gold diffuser and chrome ceiling plate. There will be two of these above the dining table

We are having a custom made recycled timber table, 2.4m x 1.2m with flush edges in English Oak Stain. The wood is salvaged from homes over 100 years old in Melbourne that are being demolished. The tables are absolutely stunning and come directly from the manufacturer - Glory Days Furniture in Epping. Because they are not retail, the prices are about 1/3 of what they are in the shops and the finish is comparable to the beautiful tables I looked at in Mark Tuckey and other designer furniture joints.

These glossy beauties will accompany the table. We are getting these from Milan Direct as per the deal I told you about last post. There is only ONE day to go on this amazing deal. Make sure you follow our specific link below to find out more.

These are replica Xavier Pauchard Tolix Stools are going to sit at the island bench. The colours looks sensational together and are perfect for our young, fun family.

I think it is safe to say with the curtain quote and landscaping quote both arriving last Thursday, Cam has put a moratorium on all spending for the time there wont be anything until closer to handover.

Speaking of handover. Nothing was really done over the past few weeks and QA may happen next Monday if our SS gets his lazy butt into gear...we shall see. So much to do still and it appears that Metricon aren't that fussed about finishing our house and getting us the keys...

Hopefully, when Cam sees our SS on site on Wed morning, we will have more positive news to share, but I'm not holding my breath!



  1. Hi! I followed your link and got a voucher too so hopefully some more people do so you can get yours free. We want to get those same dining chairs but with chrome legs as the PU leather chairs that came with our timber table have fallen apart!

  2. Looking forward to seeing your custom made dining table <3

    Love your chair choice ;)
