I think it was two weekends ago I sat with a pad of paper and pen for a couple of hours and drew up plans for a NEW "GRAND REARRANGE". I even drew diagrams for my hubby to see, so he could approve my ideas BEFORE I asked him to move the first stick of furniture(yes, sometimes it is beneficial to DRAW a picture!). Then I made a list of the order in which I thought things should be done.
The sunroom rearrange was really kind of far down on the list, but I knew it was fairly self contained, and since I was having trouble getting excited about doing all the work involved in the other areas, I thought MAYBE refreshing this room would give me the necessary jump start to do the other things. So we did it yesterday.
(We will see if it did, indeed, provide that "jump start"!)
Here is the finished room last night. I know the picture is not exactly bright, but the flash was just TOO MUCH for it, and I have NOT mastered the settings on my
new one year old camera YET.
The furniture movement involved placing the piano in the corner and switching its position with the green table, along with swapping the chair and love seat around and turning the love seat at a slight angle to open up the walkway. The door behind the love seat leads to the porch, deck, and pool, so we have to keep that walk space open this time of year.
I enjoyed pulling some things together for the top of my little green table, where now I can sit during piano practice and write a note or read while keeping an eye on the Practicing Child of the Moment.
A simple arrangement on top of the piano.
The sky was getting really pretty at this point in the day.
The piano bench can now work for sitting(having tea?) at the table as well as the piano!
This is the view toward the kitchen side.
Another picture just for the sake of that sky! It was so peaceful outside. We've had some LOVELY sunset-hour skies lately.
Ah, the morning light brings us a better view--and there's The Practicing Child....today is piano lesson day!
The room really is SO much lighter and breezier this way. I think it will also be easier to keep the floor under the piano clean without the view being completely blocked. A couple of the kids said "It feels like the BEACH in here!" I took that as a compliment.
Thanks for stopping by!
