The January blues, going to market and Kim’s post on entryways a couple of weeks ago all have had me rearranging and redoing. I’m ready for a little bit of a change around here, so while dinner is cooking or the kids are working on homework, I’ve slowly started scooting things around and moving things here and there. Just to see if it makes a difference. I got it in my head that I want a bench in our entryway. No reason really – we don’t even use the front door. But if we did, wouldn’t a bench be nice! Also, I decided I needed the piece of furniture that was there somewhere else. So…while the spaghetti was cooking the other night, I made a few changes.
This is the before. I moved the cabinet to the breakfast room and (just for kicks) I moved the bench/table from our back porch into its place. We found this bench/table in the attic when we moved into the house and it’s lived in various rooms. Not sure if it’s a permanent solution in the entry, but it’s a start. Also, stole a lamp from the living room, a picture from the dining room and a pillow from the couch. I guess if I decide to leave what I’ve moved around, I need to do some replacement shopping. Darn.
I like it for now, but by next week the walls may be a different color. Not sure yet! What little decorating tweaks are you working on? A lot can be done while the spaghetti is cooking!
