I'm back with the next change I made over the weekend. The first part of this mini project was free, it just required some superhuman effort and some hubby help. All we did was some minor furniture rearrangement. Previously, the TV cabinet was in the corner. I never liked it there because it blocked the window and I like as much natural light into a room as possible. Unfortunately, the thing weighs a ton. And it has a heavy TV in it. And a DVD player and stereo equipment. And stacks of movies and CDs in the bottom. Well, taking all that out and unhooking all the wires is a great big pain. So we huffed and puffed and shoved that big boy over along the wall. The couches were much easier, just a little tweaking there.
Here's how everything was before:
And the new arrangement that's more straight on:
But there's something else different there. What else has changed between the before and after picture? One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong.....Anyone else remember that from Sesame Street? There are actually five things different that I see, can anyone find all the differences between the first and second photo?
I'll give you a hint on the first and biggest which is my new area rug! I found it at Old Time Pottery for $32. I wasn't planning on buying a rug for there yet, but I happened to find this one on sale and it was the only green one left.
It's amazing how simply a new furniture arrangemet can change a room and it's a great free way to have a mini room makeover. So give it a try. Pull your furniture out from the walls, switch your couches and chairs around, and give a new look a try. So that's part 2 of my weekend updates. Go here for part 3 with some changes to my dining room table.
