Hi everyone, TGIF! For those who have enjoyed Part 1 of AN’s renovation Down Under, here comes Part 2!
Ok, picking up from where we left off in the last post, AN replaced the curtains with shutters, as the curtains made the place looked old and tired.
After that, AN decided to replace the curtains in the living room with roller blinds:
With the main renovation done, it is time to focus on the furniture.
Another interesting chair that AN bought:
AN also decided to change the dining chair covers. He decided to custom make the covers in Malaysia instead of Adelaide, as it is much much cheaper!
Very smart of AN to mix two colours instead of having one flat colour scheme. Also, by changing the chair covers in Malaysia, it only cost him RM700 for 6 chairs, compared to the cost of AUD1,200 in Adelaide!
Of course, a place would not be a home without a bookshelf 🙂 Initially it was just an empty Ikea bookshelf:
When AN first set out to renovate his place, they were also very conscious that there were certain parts of the house they they really wanted to preserve, and these are “non-negotiable” in terms of maintaining it, as they wanted something to remind them of the original state of the house. For example:
Another thing that he kept was the wooden trimmings:
That’s all the renovation and furnishing from AN’s story. Oh, but before I end this post, I have to share with you the amazing orange trees at AN’s garden!
AN has a large garden and BBQ area, which he plans to work on in the future. Till then, hope you have enjoyed my blog and have a fantastic weeked!
