A Little Rearranging

Even though it was 90 and rainy here all day I decided to get some stuff done. I was cleaning like always (have I mentioned that I have OCD)? Anyway, I was cleaning and decided to move some stuff around. Our living room is pretty good sized. It is not big but the stairs come down in it so some of the bigger objects have to stay in the same place. Enough with the blabbing and on with the pictures.

Before
Notice all of the toys everywhere. Not any more.

After

The couch stayed in the same place but you can see the rocking chair has been moved next to it.
I love the rocking chair here. It freed up our huge front window which is what I have wanted all along.
This is just the cute arrangement that I placed next to the chair.(Sorry about the laptop case peeking out).
The TV also stayed in its place. I moved out birch logs and placed a photo album by the fire place.
This is the ottoman that goes with the chair in my room. I decided to move it to the living room for more seating and placed our other end table in my room.


This is right by our front door. Adam has had this trunk for quite a while. His ancestors brought it to America with everything they owned. I would love to find more cool old trunks.  I am really happy with the way it turned out. I fell like it opened everything up nicely. Like I said in the beginning, no more toys. I am slowly winning some of my house back.
