Living Room Rearrange

One of my favorite things to do in my boredom is rearrange my furniture. This might also be one of my husbands biggest pet peeves about me. He likes things to always be the same and I can never make up my mind about what I want and lets be honest, its basically playing doll house with a real house and thats what all little girls dream of doing, right? About one of the only perks of being away from my hubby right now, is that I can rearrange to my hearts content :) So, here are some pics of the ever changing living room...for now ;)

This is where we were last time I checked in..

I didn't move things for a while on account of all the Christmas d├ęcor being up {which if you missed that you can look back here} but once that was taken care of, I couldn't resist!

Of course when moved furniture around I am always left with these pesky marks. Good thing I know a little trick ;)

Let an ice cube melt into the spot and then fluff the fibers with the prongs of a fork.You wont even be able to tell afterwards. Your welcome :)

The couches stayed in the same place but I moved the desk and added a shelf thanks to the charity of my friends Brecklyn and Justin.Thanks guys! {If you read my family blog See Our Sweet Life, then you have probably heard about Brecklyn before lol.}

The tv pretty much has to stay where it is since that's where the cable comes in. { I have plans to paint both the desk and this tv stand, color suggestions? Yellow? Black? Aqua?}

Well, that lasted a little while. Until I found a cute set of sheets that I thought would be perfect to cover the patterned unmatching couches. Which inspired me to move some things around yet again.

I left the couches again, but swapped out the iron medallion over the mantle {which was just slightly to small} for some patterned decals that I scored super cheap from LTD commodities.

I moved both lamps onto the mantle and moved the chair and sidetable/lamp under the window on the left.

Both the floor lamp/table and the lamp on the desk used to be brass. I gave them both a little revamping which I will share with you later :) I moved the desk where the chair used to be and left the shelf in the same place.

The medallion found a home above the desk for now { I have plans to use this wall for something else}

The other couch also stayed but was covered and got some company in the way of an ottoman and a side table. {Still in search of a solution for covering up the arms, ideas?}

Rocko seems to enjoy it

An this just wouldn't be a complete post without a up to date before and after. Drumroll please..............



Still a work in progress but I am loving the journey :)
