Moving Stuff Around

We’ve been doing some reorganizing at this old house and moving stuff around to better fit spaces. Before I could grab my camera for some before shots Dear was already moving stuff. The table that is under the mirror in these shots that used to hold the stereo equipment got moved up to our sitting area off our master bedroom to hold our printer that came out of the spare oom.

This is our living room. We put the matching black short bookshelves under the windows on either side of the fireplace. These cabinets were in two separate rooms in our house before. The large mirror got moved kitty corner from where it was before. The antique library table was moved under the mirror and now has our stereo equipment on top of it. The bookshelves remained in place as did the china secretary that you can almost see in this next photo.

Since our little crawler is arriving today we moved a lot of stuff out of the living room like the tea cart, coffee table and small side tables into the Blue room so Addy has more room to roam safely. We bought a safety gate to block off the stairs that lead down to the front door and the basement. These items will return after the weekend.

We put that antique white cabinet in the garage for now because it just didn’t make sense to have it in this spare bedroom. The two tall bookshelves were in two separate rooms before and we decided to put them in here on either side of the little desk. We also moved the big office chair out and brought in a small folding chair that fits the desk better. We call this room the Spare Oom. You can see the printer that got moved out of here next to the desk in the before photo.

The small bookcase that was between these two tall bookcases in our second guest room that we call Katie’s room or the Blue room is now in the living room with it’s match on either side of the fireplace. The black dresser was moved from our master suite to finish off the look in this bedroom.

We’re happy with the changes. If and when we decide to sell this old house there will be more changes to fake buyers into thinking there’s more room, I mean staging.

Right now the pilot lights are on again and we’ve even had the heat on for the last couple mornings. Fall has arrived a few days early. We are hearing we’ll have another warm spell next week, though.

I’ll be scarce around blog land the next few days. Hope you all have a good weekend. I’m off and running!

  1. Wow! You guys have lots of energy! I need some just like that. Your changes look very nice! Have a fun weekend with Addy and her parents, too, of course! πŸ™‚

  2. Did the book cases come from Ikea. We have some that look just like that but ours have glass doors on them.
    You have a lovely home.
    I am always moving things around. It a fun thing for me to do. : )
    My mom was the same way and so are both my kids.

  3. My husband starts moving things before I start taking pics sometimes, too, even though I tell that silly old man to wait! He just gets so excited when he gets an idea in his head. He’s weird!😜 I hope you’re enjoying your newly styled surroundings! I’ve got some rearranging to do, too. I’m a bit more inspired now!

  4. Wow! You have been doing lots of moving! (How’s your back feeling after all this?) The new arrangements look so nice! Isn’t it fun to discover a better way to design a room?

    Have a happy weekend with your dear ones!

  5. I like your changes. Since down sizing there are minimal changes to make but we are in the thinking process of moving a few furniture pieces around….you are inspiring me.

  6. Very nice! My sister was a great one for rearranging the furniture frequently, and I am the complete opposite. I’ve always given careful thought to the arrangement at the beginning, then left it that way for as long as I was in that house! Of course, I never lived anywhere as long as we’ve been in this house, so maybe I ought to rethink that strategy! πŸ™‚
