We spent most of the afternoon rearranging furniture in our main living area, and I’m loving the results.
When we moved in a few years ago, we put D’s dining set into storage in the basement. It didn’t really match my style; plus it reminded me of his ex. So we bought a brand new dining room set, and used my old dining set in the breakfast room. My table is a high table and not super comfortable, so we had mostly stopped using that room. We’ve been discussing buying a new table, but then I thought: why not just see if we can work with what we have on hand.
Onto the pics –
We bought seat cushions, a tablecloth, and placemats, and suddenly I was really liking it a lot. I’m also loving being closer to the floor. It’s much more comfortable now, and the flow between the rooms is better.
Then we were like: what if we can find a use for the old china cabinet as well? And so we did. Not for actual china though, because I’m not 80. Lol.
I’m super impressed that I was able to help move all this heavy ass furniture up from the basement. It wasn’t easy, and my body hates me right now, but it was worth it. I guess the exercising is working. I feel stronger.
Home decor projects that are currently in the works include: shades for the windows in the big living room, a sofa table, a couple of new rugs, a fancy wine rack, and some plants. I also have plans for my office, and for a photo wall. We figure if we’re stuck at home all summer we should spend some money and time on making the house as comfortable as possible.
