The Old Switcheroo

Do you ever switch furniture around in your house to achieve a new look of feel? This past weekend I did some switching around in preparation for the new dining table that I will (hopefully, crossing fingers, praying) done with this week.

First change is to our bedroom. I switched the out the white bank box console for the credenza I bought a while back. It matches the dresser I've been using, I like the warm wood, and I think we'll use it more than the bank boxes in the bedroom. 

And I love love love it with my new blue chair!!! Gorgeous~~~ I still love the grey slipcovered one but I felt like the blue went better with the room scheme. The grey chair is currently in our dining room, not sure where it's new home will be. This is what happens when you have a chair fetish, it's a sickness really.

The other change I made in the bedroom is switching up our end tables. I placed the new cherry table I won at our family reunion on my side of the room and flipped the marble top one to the Hubs side.

And another thrifty find- this awesome brass plate! I had seen it in one of the shops in town and finally broke down and bought it.

And you can see here that I am letting you in on a dirty little secret: I never made the upholstered footboard for our bed. Getting on that ASAP!

So those are the bedroom changes, here is the dining room with it's new bank box credenza:

As I mentioned earlier hoping to have a new table in here soon! Con-Man will loose his racetrack space but oh well for him! And since I no longer need that empty spot in the credenza for the TV box I'm thinking it will be a new wine storage area. Yep, always need more of that!

Do you ever rearrange your furniture for a new feel? Or go "shopping" in your house for new items??
