Yep.. you read that correct – we rearranged the living/dining room – all because this gorgeous 12 year got the Kinect for her birthday and I needed more space to play the games.
Ok so maybe it might have also been an excuse for me to take an opportunity to spruce up the room. It wasn’t been touch in 3 years… that’s FOREVER ago. I usually switch things around with every seasonal change. Three years ago we got the ginormous leather sectional and I never thought to flip the room around. I gotta say I should have done it sooner cause this new layout rocks!
I will be the 1st to admit I am at loss on what to do with these big walls. I really am. Every idea I have had an idea it just seem to get lost on the walls.
Here is the old layout of the room. I was already in the the process of moving things out of the way when I realized :maybe I should “take before pics and blog about it”. Typical me 🙂
The room is a combination room with the back half having the family room. It has a ginormous leather section, a round leather ottoman/coffee table, a large screen TV, my Pottery Barn floor light (circa 1999) and a sofa table (an Ikea bookcase on its side). I didn’t realize how much everything was hidden behind that sofa table until I looked at these pics. And yep I already know beige the room is.
Just a sidenote: I also realized how much I SUCK at taking pictures with my smaller digital camera. I am always in awe at how talented the women out in blogland are with their amazing pictures. Not much of that going on here. I really need to get on that.
And now for the new layout.
Notice all the newly found room for playing games and entertaining? I have a ton of space for my Zumba. The hubby even put wheels on the coffee table/ottoman. We can now roll it out of the way whenever we need the space. How cool is my husband? I made an off hand comment about how I wished the ottoman had wheels on it and he did it ASAP! I love that man.
