While my husband was out of town a while back I did some moving of furniture and other stuff in an effort to open things up in our house - specifically our bedroom on this mission. I moved out a dresser and a love seat and moved my dresser to one of the open spots. It's so nice to be able to move around better in this room.
When I was doing all of this I noticed that our mantel had become a hodge podge of all kinds of things. All things I like and want to keep but didn't have a new home for. I started here:
With some editing I ended here:
That waterfront print was in our room on a wall that housed the short dresser I moved into LM's room (are you still following me?) When I moved my tall dresser to that wall, this print no longer worked there. But I am loving it over the fireplace.
I bought nothing new for this makeover. I put away a lot and pulled a cute little frame out of the closet. I love the transformation and am enjoying the space we have now. I love the idea of creating a totally new look without spending a dime.
I'm currently working on my office/craft room. I have already thrown out two bags of trash and 1 1/2 bags will go to the Goodwill. And there's still more to do. One day I hope to have some really neat pictures to share.
Oh, my husband hasn't said a word about it yet! I'm not sure if he hasn't noticed or just hasn't said anything. It's a pretty big change and I figured he'd say something. But not yet...
