Switching Things Up

Today Allen and I did something we've enjoyed doing together over the years. Usually Allen starts by saying "You know what I was thinking we should do today?" As soon as I hear this I say "which room and where are we going to put it?"

No! I know what your thinking! It's not sexual.... We are talking about rearranging furniture. I love the way a room feels new to me after everything is moved. Almost as if everything in it is new again. It also gets us to clean corners and tables and out from underneath everything in sight. Today we choose the bedroom. What was once lost is now found again. About ten pairs of socks, old toys and a baby bottle of curtled milk! EWWW!!! We always lose bottles but I hate finding them. SO GROSS!!!

Since I'm new to blogging and at the time I had no idea I would even start one I didn't take before pictures. I really wish I did. Now the bed isn't taking up the middle of the room and it's so much more open. Things aren't just lined up against the wall either. I can't wait to get a good nights sleep in there either!

It's really clean and basic. This is the view form the doorway. The dresser was where the bed was and the bed was on the wall to the left facing the windows. It's made a difference.
I haven't put a lot of effort into this room. I'm waiting for the day we buy a house. I have almost the whole thing planned out in my head. Our bedroom will be lavender and sage green. I want lots of pictures of flowers and nature. I also would like to find a big picture of a heart carved into a tree or something. While sweeping I mentioned it to Allen and I'm not sure he agrees with the color choice! Oh well. I'm going to decorate it just the way I want. I know he won't mind in the end.
