I am so glad I did.
We had become overrun by stuff - for the store, for the family, stuff we didn't know where else to store. Sigh....stress, stress and more stress. The exercise bike is there because I need to use it. Do I, no, but that is another story. However, it was cramped in that corner and hard to get around when making the bed.
My poor dresser...over run by stuff....
The first thing I did was move the armoire out of my room. It had not been moved in 7 years. Look at the size of that dust bunny...I am really let you see behind the scenes today! The armoire had been used to store movies and held the tv we used to have in our room. With no tv in here, this piece could be moved to the living room!
The television in the livingroom is for watching movies. It is probably a bit high but it now we have no problem with seeing it from any seat in the room.
The armoire was along the wall that my bedroom door is on as well as my closet. I moved my desk to that space and I really like it.
I took this photo while sitting on the floor and looking toward my door. I, of course, moved the bed as well and here you can see many of the clutter items on it. In my experience, things get much worse before they look better!
Now you can see my desk and the closet...Rachel's hope chest is to the right. This currently has a printer on it but that will be going else where. I want the space for seating. My room is often a hang out place for my kids and I want it to be comfy.
Looking back toward the door...
My comfy bed this morning!
It is amazing how moving that one piece of furniture to a new location changed the whole feel of the room - it has more room now! The bike is easy to access now as well. So no more excuses!
A bonus of moving the armoire to the living room is that the wicker coffee table that the television previously sat on was no longer needed inside.
This makes me happy!
Today I have sat at my clean desk, ordering handbags, jewelry, watches....I have talked on the phone to my friend that is headed to Texas - twice! and texted with my sweet girl in the shop! I have been able to interact with all my children here and hug and kiss my granddaughter a few times as well. What a sweet life I have!
So what do you think? Do you like it?
