We have a new lounge set for downstairs because my Mumsy-Poo is awesome! I'm very, very VERY grateful. I'm counting this as my birthday, Christmas, housewarming and a stack of other things all in one. They were actually ordered back in March (yes..March), but it's taken that long to get here.
One is a three seater and the other is a sofa bed which is totally awesome because we've had more than one occasion where we haven't had enough beds. So, when the guest room is occupied we'll convert this downstairs space into a second guest room which is actually better than the upstairs one because it has the downstairs bathroom all to itself.
I also recently bought Josh a new king single mattress because he's now 6' 1" (or 183cm) and simply doesn't fit in his single anymore. (And no I didn't get him a double because his room is too small and I don't want to encourage, entertain or even consider that anyone else will be in that bed!!!). But, we will keep his old single and put it on a trundle underneath his bed so when his mates come around they can sleep there. So all up, we can now comfortably sleep eight people, no dramas :-).
When downstairs is not a second guest room though, woohoo, it's a second lounge room/teenagers retreat/media room. The space is shared by Josh's music equipment, so we had to do a bit of a re-arrange as there's still a TV and entertainment unit to come until it's complete.
Josh has rearranged this in anticipation of the TV and entertainment unit, which will go against this wall. He had to take a few guitars upstairs to make room (seriously…who NEEDS seven guitars), but I'm glad he did it cause these lounges were HEAVY!
So we're nearly there with a big thanks to mah Mum.
