Like Mother, Like Daughter

My mother is a furniture mover; no, no...not what you are thinking!

She rearranges the furniture in her house A LOT!  I always marvel at how she can make a room look brand new just by moving things around.

I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, because I'm always moving things around too.  This weekend I rearranged the family room.  

The sectional used to sit square in the room and I put it on an angle.  I also took down the dark brown curtains.  I'm going to make some shades for the windows....someday!

I moved this console table in from the study.  See that dark niche with all the electronics in the background?

Here's what will go in that space soon....

My talented brother-in-law made this built-in for us.  He just has to stain it cherry to match our kitchen cabinets.

Your room looks great! I think there's furniture moving blood in all us gals! ;)

It's so much fun to make little changes isn't it? Although...that furniture looks heavy, so I'm not sure it was such a little change.

Be sure to stop by for a visit and check out the three fun linky parties I'm starting up tonight, June 1st.

Hugs,
Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage
