And, boy, did I!
I completely rearranged the living room, the kitchen/dining area, and my bedroom. And I already love the change. (To see the place before the changes, check out this post.)
|The bar (still stocked) is now where the dining table used to be.|
|And the baker's rack with some soft lighting (because the lighting in this room sucks!).|
|My new "spacious" living room. Although Cecilia the Fur still dominates the space.|
Thankfully she is only indoors until it warms up. I can't believe how much she has grown in five years!
|The dining area is now outside of the kitchen.|
|Because I have no bedside tables anymore (you'll see in a later pic), I need one of my serving trays in the bedroom.|
Which I kind of love the feel of. Adds to the "relaxation" vibe I'm trying to build.
|The old church pew my parents gave me works perfectly here.|
Hopefully I can prevent it from being a "catch-all" (which it has already started to be but only because I'm not done yet!
|I love it. Ahhh .....|
|No bedside tables means no place to stash my books and my glasses.|
Thankfully, the church pew has a hymnal rack on the back which holds my books and glasses PERFECTLY.
I want my bedroom to be like that last picture all the time. Candles lit, cozy blankets, a good cocktail (my special blend, of course), good books ready for reading ... Maybe if I can make this happen on a regular basis, I'll stay level and stress-free. Right?
The whole house needs some new artwork added, and I've got a ton of my own photographs to put up. I just need to decide what and where and all that jazz. But, for now, I'm happy with my "new" space.
