Wordful Wednesdays

Good morning! It's time for another Wordful Wednesday's. This is for those of us who have pictures we can't shut up about. Ok, so maybe I could shut up about this, but I wanted to share all the same.

A lot of my furniture is hand me downs, or something that I found an amazing deal on. The piano is Mom and Dad's. Anyway, I "made do" in my living room when I moved in. Not awful, but certainly looked dark and cramped. See?
Anyway, I decided that an upgrade was in order. I sold off the old entertainment center, and used those funds to help purchase a corner unit. Last week I was feeling very accomplished and got it put together, 98% by myself. A little help with centering the cupboard doors, but the rest of it? All me!

I couldn't figure out what to do with the bookcase. I tried it kitty corner, against each wall, and it just didn't work. Finally, one of my most awesome co-workers suggested that I center it on the wall - not pushed into a corner. And, voila! I love it! More room, cleaner looking, and nicer looking. What do you think?

Come play with us . . .

Sometimes the changes are so simple we can't even see them ourselves. Looks great!
