For a long time, the china cabinet/bookcase
has been in the corner of our bedroom.
It partially blocked the window and I really feel that you should
put furniture in front of a window.
Even a room that has lots of windows.
But sometimes I do it because there is no where else to put it!
I'm sure we've all done that!
And so yesterday I moved it
And put this sweet little table, lamp and sewing box on it.
Two cross stitch samplers seemed fitting art for the wall.
The sweet little table was a gift from my friend, Sally,
who's moved but this sweet little table and the start of her grandmother's true Christmas cactus
will always remind me of her.
The room looks and feels brighter and bigger with the cabinet removed!
More spacious I think!
And where did I put the china cabinet/bookcase?
In the sunroom!
It fits better I think, between the two leather chairs.
And it's a room of books anyway
so a bookcase seems appropriate!
When I got the table, I put it between the leather chairs
But it's a feminine dainty table
And the chairs are masculine.
It looked okay
But I kept thinking that it wasn't "perfect".
For a long time, I had my mother's bookcase there
And another piece that blocked one of the windows.
I moved that piece to the spare room
And the bookcase across the room
It seems more spacious without that window being partially blocked!
And then I was looking at something on the blog and ran across this picture!
I need to move the bookcase back!
And so I did!
I'm much happier with both rooms now!
