I’m back from Cancun…sadly, I admit. Why can’t life just be an all-inclusive vacation? Sigh. So even though no one has clued in the thermometer outside that it is Spring, I’m trying to create spring indoors for myself and get a jump on my spring cleaning. Who knew I had such a dirty, nasty house hidden behind all that furniture? The day after we returned from vacation, Matt and I put the kids to bed and rearranged our entire downstairs. Nothing gives you a new passion for your things like repurposing them. I love the new arrangement and wish we would have done it ages ago. (Of course, hubby was quick to point out that we didn’t exactly just rearrange. A new rug from the Pottery Barn Outlet and new table and chairs on clearance from JC Penney’s has been added. Or subtracted if you’re talking about our pocketbook.)
The dining room table is now placed at the front of the house and below is the rug we got for 60% off at the PB outlet. If you have one near you, you are lucky. They are grand places for bargains. I have had my eye on this rug for over a year now and was thrilled to find it waiting for me. I actually wanted the red one, but it wasn’t available and I’m happy with the more subdued green.
This was taken from the top of the dining room table. It is our new living room arrangement.
