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.
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.
