Rainy day Renovations

Well we had some furniture change rooms over the weekend. I still can't figure out how it was started but, I'm sure it was me!! We moved all of the furniture from the media room upstairs downstairs to the hearth room and the hearth room furniture up the stairs. To say it wasn't as easy as we thought it would be is a big understatement. After removing one arm of a couch with a saw and putting it back together, then several wall scratches and even a hole in the wall... It was all moved!! I like the changes a lot and it added lots of color downstairs. It was a pretty busy day when we never really planned on all of the changes but did it on impulse. Anyway, to document the excitement, I took before, during, and after pictures of the rooms and furniture!

BEFORE

DURING...One of the couch arms being removed with a saw!!

The couch finally in two pieces so it was able to fit up the narrow stairway!

BEFORE in the Media room

DURING.. a hole in the wall during the BIG furniture move
Tadd says that if we ever sale our house the upstairs furniture stays with it or...he cuts the couch in 3 pieces and tosses it out the upstairs window!

It was quite interesting trying to keep the girls out of the path of destruction-ha!

AFTER pictures of the downstairs hearth room with a little more color.

It came together pretty well so far...without a trip to the store or any money spent, yet!!

The area rug is a little small but it will have to do for now.


AFTER pictures of the Media/toy area upstairs


OK! So what do you think?? Was it worth all the trouble??

Oh, and my sister and her husband, Chad are having Baby Brilee in the morning (I mean later today-ha.) Say a prayer for them and the baby that everything goes well! I'll post pictures of the sweet baby girl when I can!
