Do you ever get so used to seeing something in your house,
that you don’t even notice it anymore?
Then when you actually change things around,
it can feel like you bought something new.
That’s how I felt a couple weeks ago
when I moved some things in and out of the living room – HERE.
But even after I moved everything in place,
I really wasn’t sure if I would keep it that way.
Then recently, I was using the dining room table
as my “desk”
but with all the projects and paperwork I have spread out,
I needed to move to a place where I had more room.
It’s not like we really use the dining room, I am sad to say.
We eat in there for a couple holidays
and maybe once or twice the rest of the year.
But as I sat at my computer,
I looked around and viewed my house in a different way.
Sure, I had to get past the projects all over the room…
But I realized that I like sitting by this window
and don’t do it enough.
Then I looked across the foyer
(and past my brassy, desperately in-need-of an-update door hardware)
into the newly arranged living room.
I realized this was the first time
I really appreciated that room from this exact angle.
And even though I second-guessed myself when I rearranged that room,
I can honestly say, I like it better now.
Sometimes a different perspective makes all the difference.
So, if you are hesitating about rearranging something,
just give it a try.
You might surprise yourself!
Have you moved any furniture around lately?
