We have been on a bit of a pause working on our house the last week or two; rejuvenating our ideas and spending time with family this last weekend. I must admit, it was a pleasant break from the house, and I might continue to take advantage of stepping back from the work to think through our next steps for our home. Connor and I finally got netflix, so between watching our favorite tv shows, and planning some adventures to get outside, our home has been on the back-burner a bit. We were actually out looking to purchase bicycles, when we stopped by Goodwill, and found a beautiful solid wood dresser for just $60. We snagged it up to use for our front entry. The area isn’t quite set up yet, but to get the existing furniture out of the way, we moved it to the back entry/mudroom and spent some time working there. It’s not how I imagine it in the future when it is complete, but it is 100 times better than having a bare room (how it was just yesterday), even if it is just temporary.
It’s funny how furniture can change just based on the room it is in and the combination of items it is with. I have been pretty unhappy with our front entry, which held the same chair and cubed shelving. Moving it to the back entry gave it a whole different look, but I’m not exactly sure why. It makes me happy to see the spaces evolve and come together.
