This post has been a long time coming. I wrote it a while ago, but then because of my laptop crash, I couldn’t get pictures up. Here’s our living room rearrangement post, at last!
After we pulled down the Christmas decorations, I couldn’t wait to put our new TV stand to use and rearrange! So the day after Christmas, we did just that.
Space saver drawers filled with office supplies (why is it not in the office??), all of our board games, exercise equipment all over the floor, and cords everywhere connecting all the various forms of media to each other. Lovely.
Just for anyone who’s wondering about the weird title, it’s a play on “fung shui.” I was told that in order to properly fung shui you have to hide gold coins and polarize your room – which we did not do.
Anyway, here it is after the rearrangement:
View from the entryway. We have an odd-shaped room, so we angled the couch and loveseat to help the room seem bigger. I tucked the exercise mats and hand weights on the bottom shelf.
Close up of our beautiful IKEA tv stand. Even though the Wii is sitting next to the tv, there are no annoying exposed cords. All the other games and gaming equipment are in the right hand drawer. My exercise dvds, resistance bands, etc. went in the left drawer.
So that’s our grand rearrangement. It took about an hour to finally settle on an arrangement we both agreed on, but now we absolutely love it!
I can’t wait to get crackin’ on the rest of the details of the room like:
- a piano bench
- some better lighting so we don’t have to have all 3 lamps and the ceiling fan fixture on all at once to get the room fully lit
- a different, less-dated rug
- a big mirror to hang over the fireplace
- some cabinets to match the tv stand (this will be a “someday” dream)
Thanks for reading!
