Weekend Redo

So, Dad came down last weekend with a very important delivery.

Hand me down furniture. ;-)

He has bought himself a new family room suite, and as is tradition, I got the cast offs - yay! Shiny (new to me) furniture!

We unloaded everything, and spent the better part of an evening shifting furniture around, moving bookcases, and resettling the room - and I love how it looks! It's so much bigger now!

Before:

Ooh, Ahh...


Note the big honker couch and the bookcase of DVDs you stare at in the room...

After:

Redone


New couch, new chairs and ottomans, and Dad and I got crafty and hung up a curtain rod to show off my quilts! Fills in the space nicely, no?

New chairs...

The old bookcase is now in the hall - much better:

Hallway bookcase


During Dad's visit, we also installed curtains in the study:

New Study Curtains


We also visited the Fall Festival with Becca, took a walk in the woods in Harmonie State Park with Zoe, and ate waffles off Dad's new waffle maker - apparently, all those waffles at hotels during vacation become a "must have" breakfast item. ;-)

All in all, a very successful weekend!

Nice! Although I must admit I had to look back and forth to realize the chairs were new (similiar pattern). My parents came into town a few weeks ago and helped me get a bed from Ikea (queen, upgraded from my double). I call it my "big girl bed."

Yeah, the chairs are startlingly similar, except the new ones don't have puppy chew marks - yet. ;-)

I love the big girl bed!! Woot!
