I don't know what you do when you're bored, but I rearrange furniture. A few weeks ago, on a lazy Sunday evening, I coerced my sweet husband into helping me rearrange the couches in the living room. (Which was better than this past weekend, when I coerced him into helping me unload the huge bookcases and move them across the room, only to decided I didn't like it, and have him move them back... Oops.) But this change worked out nicely.
The couches used to face each other, but we moved the brown leather couch in front of the window instead, which really opened up the room. That couch also now faces the TV, which is an added bonus. I am not really in love with either of our couches... they are a mismatched pair, each one held over from our single days (mine was the white slipcovered, his was the brown leather). After almost 3 years of marriage, I'm looking forward to buying our first couch together someday soon. I've been gathering ideas here.
The one piece that I didn't have room for with this new layout was my huge antique trencher bowl that sat underneath the big picture window. But no worries...
It found a new home in the bedroom. During the day, it holds a simple pair of red striped grain sack pillows (one antique, one from TJ Maxx).
And at bedtime, it holds a whole lot more! All the pillows from the bed finally have a place to spend the night instead of on the floor :)
