Changing Things Up

I'm at it again, moving things around that is! Did you happen to see my Summer Home Tour last week, if not, check it out! 

I needed to give the rug under my kitchen table some love and cleaning. With it missing from the room, I thought I might as well experiment with a different table arrangement. I really didn't think it would work with the kitchen island so close, but it didn't cost me a dime to move it and it can always go back.

I actually really like the result. I ended up moving the little chest and of course I had to move the paintings. 

It actually feels like we have more room while sitting at the table. So, I decided to find a new home for the rug which turned out to be Harrison's room (pics to come). I then moved some art that was just sitting on this chest over the kitchen sink window. I found the butterfly picture in the house that wasn't currently being used. Here's the result:

I have so much fun "playing" and changing things up that I already own. It doesn't cost any money and if it doesn't work, then oh well, you can always put it back! I hope this inspires you to "shop around your house" and freshen things up a bit!

Remember, it's not about having the biggest or "best" house, it's about having a house that's a home and a haven for you and your family. It's about having a place to come together, grow together, worship together, laugh together, and love one another. 


Linking up with Thrifty Thursday and Transformation Thursday
