HDB BTO P8 – Expectations vs reality & more pics!

More photos of the house today! 🙂

Our small bar counter. ^^ Thinking of doing something crazy to this space but for now, let it be like this first.  photo IMG_4109_zps4kho7jmy.jpg

Got that chalk board from Taobao for about $20+? The below stools are from taobao too! Very unique right? lol! I know they look flimsy but they are actually very sturdy.

My mini studio space in the study room. Solely for beauty products. LOL. I got the marble inspired table $20+ and white mat $10? from fortytwo.sg.

And here’s my study room before we moved all our things in, which is like a few weeks ago.

The 2 posters and rose gold clock are from Typo!
The table and legs are from IKEA and the chairs which you’ve seen before are from Taobao! 🙂

looks pretty neat right? I thought this looked really pinterest worthy UNTIL we start to put all our stuffs there.

and this is how the study room turned out to be. Anyway chill people, this was taken a few weeks back. It is much neater now.

Totally an expectation vs reality scenario.

The study room is currently my favourite place because it is very cosy and pretty.  ^^v What I need now is bulletin board, dressing table, shelves and drawers and this room are more or less completed. (will show you next time once done!)

Simon’s favourite place is still the kitchen and I am not complaining as he will be cooking for me. 😀 I will be getting a oven soon! Can’t wait to start baking!

BY THE WAY should I get the Nostalgia BSET300BLUE Retro Series 3-in-1 Family Size Breakfast Station??? It’s super retro and cute sia!!

can make toast, eggs, sausage and coffee. everything i like!! I’m sure simon will say this is not practical but I shall convince him HAHA.

Initially I wanted to get the Tefal TT5500 Toast N’ Egg Maker but he said it’s a gimmick and now this breakfast station is like another high level of gimmick.
