18 Inches Of Change

Change can be hard. Even the smallest of changes.

And sometimes the simplest change can make a huge difference.

Take for instance our living room. We have lived in this house for ten years now and have never really changed the furniture arrangement. Not that I didn't ever think about it, but the room is very difficult to change. There is not a lot of wall space for placing furniture because of doors, windows, steps, and the stone wall feature. And even though it is a fairly large room, it is very narrow, so floating a large piece of furniture such as the couch really won't work. Thus, things haven't been moved around much in ten years.

Until yesterday.

Yesterday I showed you my new coffee table that I got over the weekend.

So last night, the Hubster and I were relaxing and admiring the new table. I was sitting in our chair and made the comment that it was not close enough to put my feet up on the table. And my dear Hubster said, "You could move it."  Just matter-of-factly like that.

So I did. A total of about 18 inches, I think.

Do you see how the wood flooring and carpet come together at the bottom of this photo? Well, the back of the chair used to be right up against that flooring transition. So I basically turned the chair and moved it closer by a few inches. Small change, right?

I have to admit that I'm still getting used to it. But I think it makes a huge difference. Our space is cozier and more conducive to conversation. And it only took 18 inches of change!

We still need some more seating. Eventually we'd like to get another chair. But in the mean time, little changes like simply moving a chair, can make a big difference.

Have you been doing any tweaking in your house? Have you made any little changes that have had a big impact? I would love to hear about it.

Today's thankfulness....

* For a hot cup-of-something on a chilly morning.

* For words of affirmation that my husband received at work yesterday.

* For my sweet doggy who loves me unconditionally and follows me around like I'm the bees knees....even when I'm trying to take photographs.

  1. Don't tell M I said so, but... he's so smart. I love the way that cozies up the space! Who knew? Just ignore that carpet/floor line from now on. LOL
