A few weeks ago I went on a “We have too much stuff” rampage..
I got rid of two large pieces out of my family room, and have since slacked off .
Baby steps – right?
The pieces I got rid of were my treadmill and our futon.
One of them hadn’t been used in a year….
I decided to bring the couch from our living room into the family room.
These rooms are side by side, and the living room couch was rarely used.
By humans, that is..
For the past two years it has basically been a $300 glorified dog bed…
He was quite sad when we moved it away from the window.
This is the only picture I could find showing this couch in the living room.
And here is a picture of our family room with futon and treadmill.
The treadmill is hiding behind the folding screen.
I think it may be afraid of me…
Here are some shots of the family room with the
dog bed living room couch moved in -
I really love having it in here – hubby and I both snuggle on it and watch TV together.
Here is a view of the wall that the couch faces now:
Our TV and the Grandchild Wall Of Fame..
It is nice to have less stuff in here, and more room.
Our living room looks a little blank now, however.
Of course, when you free up space it has a domino effect.
Which is why I purchased two of the IKEA chairs you see
in this photo.. I need to see if I can either find different
slipcovers for them or look into recovering them.
I like the white, but I think I want them to be skirted.
Oh, and big surprise - guess where my dog sleeps now……
As I put this post together I am fairly happy with the way these rooms look -
Mainly because they help take my mind off of the way my kitchen looks right now…
Can’t wait till this project is finished!!
Here are some of the projects that are pictured in this post:
