Den to dining room, dining room to den
So, I switched my dining room and my den and I am quite happy with the results.
Here is my den before. We have talked about this room many times…
And now it looks like this…(with my newly recovered chairs..thanks to my amazing mom and dad. I didn’t even try to help as their system was so over my head (perfectionists). They are beyond helpful!)
See it all happened one day when I was sitting in the den thinking..man, I wish this was my view during meal times. Uh..wait, that could totally happen. So, I just switched the spaces.
Here is my view while I was eating breakfast this very morning. Thats what I am talking about!
And the old dining room now looks like this (with my new thrift store couch).
Now, besides the lighting fixtures (which you can see are a little “off” since they were centered on the previous set up), there was really no issue in switching the rooms. We actually end up in the new den more than we did the old den. Its bright and perfec for reading 100 princess books a day.
We might even switch back when the winter returns, as we do enjoy relaxing on the couch by the fire. Althougth breakfast by the fire sounds pretty awesome too. Really, most events with a fire in the background are better.
The lesson I learned here was this…Don’t get stuck. You have options. If you have the urge to change something up, try it! You might even end up with a better view.
