It's Monday and time for Met Monday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Everyone has such great transformations and Susan's this Monday is awesome -- but I'm not sure I'm brave enough to follow her directions -- we shall see!
I've always felt that a house is "living and breathing" and all things living and breathing change -- be it a new rug for the bathroom or a complete room makeover. Changes don't have to be big to be a change. Changes can be simple.
Which is why, although I don't really move furniture, I do rearrange tabletops. Some rearrangements are seasonal while others are "just because". It keeps Linderhof from being stale.
This is a "just because" in the sunroom. One of the leather chairs with an oriental stacked piece next to it and a floor lamp -- a few "things" on top. Nice, I think, but it's been that way for far too long.
So I moved the oriental piece and floor lamp out and moved this end table in -- complete with lamp and "things".
It's a bit cluttery but at Linderhof we like cluttery and yes, the lampshade is too small for the lamp but my only lampshade buying opportunities on the prairie is at Wal Mart and I prefer a nicer shade. Need to take lamp on my next trip to the city for lampshade!
It's a small change but I like it and actually it gives me more room for the table was already in the room on the other side of the chair. That space is now empty and gives us more room for our computer chair.
Thanks again to Susan -- she is a great hostess and if you haven't visited her blog, Between Naps on the Porch, be sure to do so -- it's always a great time at Susan's!
