It started with the idea that if our armoire that houses our TV in the bedroom were a bit closer to the bed, we could comfortably watch the morning news and have a great view. Dare we admit that our vision is deteriorating?
The armoire was placed in the sitting room from the first day we moved-in until today. You see, we have nothing to sit on in the sitting room. Basically, I iron in the sitting room. And I dream of having the means one day to knock down the wall and enlarge the craft room by taking over the sitting room. For now, it remains as a sitting room with no seats.
Rather than admit our eyesight is deteriorating, with a few grunts and groans, we lifted and slid furniture across the carpet, the 'TV command center' now sits within a reasonable eye shot from the bed.
Do you see what I see? A blank wall! The ideas are filling up my interior-design-obsessed-mind. Oh the possibilities. I have longed for a wall behind our bed. I was tired of blocking windows with our nightstands and bed.
There is still work to be done here. The good news is we will save money on new eyeglasses. The bad news is...I can envision a new area rug here as well as mirrors to flank the nightstands.
Rearranging a room can freshen the look as well as cause chaos at the same time. That is, chaos to the checkbook.
And that is the story of my life.
