Just For Fun....

Sunday morning, it was overcast, and I wanted to get busy. I didn't feel like going anywhere actually. Maybe clean a little bit of the house. Yes, that's what I'll do. I've been wanting to rearrange the furniture in the living room for months now. This time, it was time!! The couch and loveseat haven't been arranged differently from where they were for years!! Seriously. So, in order to get the vacuum under the couch and clean up webs and cat toys, etc., the furniture had to be moved out. Right? But! Once I moved everything out, and rearranged everything, I realized something was amiss [Heck, I KNEW for years, but never did anything about it] something just didn't match the whole scheme. Guess what? I ended up going shopping against my best intentions. I came up with a simple, inexpensive solution...something that 'works' with the Southwestern theme.



Now, here comes the "just for fun" part of the blog...Can you spot the difference from "Before and After" images?





If you didn't catch the difference, I took the rattan, glass top end tables and covered them with two identical Mexican blankets...to cover up the 'tropical look' and make it more "western". Now maybe some new curtains to cover the vertical blinds? Who knows what can of worms I opened up for myself. Of course, for the decades it took me to 're-cover' the rattan, and think of changing curtains, I will probably be 6 feet under.  The bright side of it all is that Isaiah enjoyed the play time!!!

  6. I did find the table and also thought they were tablecloths and that is the perfect way to change rooms. I had a tablecloth on one of my tables for years and recently took it off. It does go with the room perfectly and your room looks lovely

  7. Thank goodness I noticed also. Would hate to have been the only one. It really was a simple move but makes a lovely difference.
    Still now you have me wary of chasing those dust bunnies under the couch. Seems it might open a can of worms here that I can't solve as well as you did.

  8. I noticed although I thought the tables were fine to begin with anyway. It's really a nice and comfy looking room. Of course Isaiah enjoyed it, anything moved around or different is always so much fun for kitties. :)

  9. I noticed right away and feel the additional table blankets make the room feel cozier! I feel a bit of guilt now because my couch and chairs need dust bunnies gone! Good job at your place!

  20. Boy...I guess I am having senior moments. I thought I had commented on your blog but apparently not.
    Your home is so cozy and inviting. I love the warm colors and the blankets are the perfect addition. Beautiful. Some people sure have the knack for decorating..me? not so much..Sigh...

  21. It took me a while but I finally found it. I like your decorating style Anni. I enjoy the south west so much I would feel very comfortable in your home. Thanks for sharing. I'm about to start changing things around here and it's been about as many years, maybe even more :)
