That's been my day as I have been rearranging furniture in my living room and dining room. In fact, I have completely switched them over. The living room is now the dining room and vice-versa. I really like the change.
But, I am stuck with all the stuff that has been hiding away in those two rooms! I mean really, I vacuum, sweep, dust, mop and yet I have unearthed another dog and two whole cats worth of hair, plus a myriad of other detritus. Ew! Thankfully it is all gone now. All that is left to do is to make a few decorating changes and I'll be done. But, I think that is the hardest part!
I have a long wall in my living room, now dining room, that holds all sorts of pictures, mirrors, etc. It looks kind of silly now with the table and chairs in there. Big, that's it. Big. And too much stuff. I am so over stuff. I see a yard sale in my future.
I think the best solution is to take it all down, edit the stuff and try out different arrangements. Sparse, airy arrangements. And shelves. I need shelves! Maybe I'll take a cruise through the rest of the house and see what I can find. Nothing like shopping in your own attic and finding necessary treasures.
I'm hoping to finish this mini-makeover today. Wish me luck!!
