Den Updates

Our house receives tweaking on a constant basis.  As I live in a space, I’m able to envision new and better ways of using the space for the way we live.  Last fall, we decided that we would graduate to the status of old people and buy his-and-hers recliners for the den to replace the loveseat/ottoman combination.  Bradley liked the thought of leather, and I liked the thought of the chairs not looking like jet-puffed marshmallows.  We purchased the chairs on Black Friday and have really enjoyed them ever since.

Den 0715 Den 0715b The other big change in the room is the removal of the corner cubby coat rack.  I removed the bench as soon as we moved in, but the coat rack stayed until I finally got a new cabinet to house our shoes.  It is the Oxford 72″ Bookcase with Glass Doors in Chestnut.  The size could not be more perfect.  It just fits between the light switch and the corner, and is 13″ deep – deep enough for Bradley’s shoes, but it doesn’t impede the air vent or outlet on the right side.  The functionality of this piece makes much more sense for us, and the corner bench set went to a nice family that can use it to corral all manner of kid paraphernalia.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
