I've been trying to get things done around the house.  First on my list was switching out our family room furniture (from the basement) to our living room (main floor).  I don't know why I didn't think of this before! Our family room downstairs is very large, but I had our smaller, sleeker furniture placed there.  Our living room, as you can see above, is quite small, but I had an overstuffed chair, rolled arm sofa and wing back recliner stuffed in the room!

The furniture switch has worked well.  We use the living room more in the winter (enjoying the fireplace) and the family room more in the summer (it's in the basement, so it's the coolest place in the house).  The family room has the overstuffed chair, wing back recliner, sofa, day bed and another chair, as well as the flat screen tv and the wii so we can watch movies and netflix.  We've been enjoying it on Friday evenings as we all just get comfy and relax!

Switching the furniture cost us $0, but it's really made the house feel new and fresh.

  1. I remember a show on HGTV that used to have a section dedicated to a makeover using just stuff from around the house. I always loved that part! No cost is just how to do a makeover! :)

    Love the built-ins around the fireplace!
