Rearranging the Living Room.

One day Bill and I decided to rearrange the living room... I can't really remember what sparked it, but I'm glad we did it. It may have been our awesome new lamp needing a place to fit in. We didn't have it yet, but I was planning on ordering it.

We don't have a very large living room and we have a couple larger pieces of furniture, so we had some working out to do. Bill used to be really good at making floor plans for his dorm room in college. We always tried to plan things out before we took on the task of moving the cumbersome lofted bed. So, I put him to work...

We for sure needed to get in the couch, two chairs, and TV. And of course our new lamp! Most of the other things were small and not as important.

This was our living room before we moved all of our stuff in... Old curtains (barf) and old paint.

Essentially, we just flipped the couch to the opposite wall. And moved the chairs (from where the photos were taken) to old couch wall. That way we had more of a conversation area and not just a "Hey, look at our TV!" area.


This sums up things in general at the moment, even though quite a bit has changed since these photos were taken. I've been adding to this post slowly and I'm now at a point where I'm planning to completely change the living room. So, I figured it would be fine to just post this at this point...

Things that have changed since these photos...
+ Awesome CB2 Big Dipper Arc Floor Lamp added
+ Painted the wall behind the couch BLACK (sorry, no decent photos, but I do like it!)
+ New, different pillows on the couch

I figure I could at least sum up what you're seeing too, incase something tickles your fancy.
- Couch: World Market. They don't carry it any more, but I honestly don't care for it. The fabric has not held up well...
- Chairs: Ikea Klappsta.
- Lamp: Ikea Orgel.
- Ottoman: Target.
- Curtains: Target
- Rug: Menards.
- Plant: Home Depot.
- Wall Print: Poster from Wollersheim Winery in Wisconsin.
