Welcome to our newly re-arranged home. When we returned to NH from Utah, we had some serious furniture adjusting to do. A new crib and changing table stuffed in front of the study furniture just isn’t practical-and Milo deserves his own room! So, instead of walking into the dining room/kitchen from the front door you now walk into the living room/kitchen!
Cozy, right? To get the awesome asymmetrical effect of the couches, we split our sectional into actual sections. The two ends here in the front room and the corner piece in the new main room.
A one armed couch is the new two-armed couch you know!
So, the bulk of the furniture ended up here, in what is now the main room. The room is actually quite large, and these photos don’t do it justice. Dave’s law books go on in the shelves, and the cupboard holds all of my fabric and notions.
Dave inherited (meaning I didn’t do it before conception) a spring break project to finally repaint our four unique dining chairs all black as we had intended when we bought four unique chairs!
Here is the corner couch with no arms (which I hear is the new one arm). I like having a snuggle area in the main room where I can chill and read while Dave studies at the table.
The book shelf from the old study became the book shelf in our new reading nook. I am 90% finished revamping that old chair (which I lovingly call the “good bones chair”). As soon as I make the cushions I’ll post the long and amazing transformation this old Goodwill find has been through in the last 6 months!
Our new Miriam Anderson original (Dave’s grandmother is a painter) hangs in above our bed…it is a depiction of Dave and I on the beach at Rilay, Thailand this summer and is a treasure.
The shelf from the study is now in our room…we have not yet figured our what to put on it…but I like it. We got the granite slab on the top for a great deal in SLC and are glad we hauled it back here with us-really changes the home depot shelf into something stylish and useful.
Ahh, and here we have the newly emptied out nursery. The crib set turned out to be as beautiful as I imagined when I spotted it on ebay. Worth the 16 hour trip (right, honey??) The airplane bedding is great blues and greens and matches our “Birds on a Wire” nursery painting perfectly. I picked up this awesome anthro rug for 1/2 price in the clearance room before leaving SL (happy birthday to me, thanks mom and dad!)
The ultimate changing table is darling, and useful. I love the drawer and shelf combo…and it came with the baskets!! We feel more at home now…and Milo has a home now! Yay!
Now if we could only manage to keep our home heated to more than 60 degrees…
