New Armoire

Happy Friday Everyone.

I wanted to show you that you can cut down an armoire and make it fit pretty easily.

This was the armoire before we cut it down.  You can see how it sticks out of the corner into the room.

This is how it looks after cutting off about 14 inches.  It fits back in that corner so much better.

 I can leave the armoire angled or even push it flat on the wall and everyone on the sectional will be able to see the TV.

Buddy wanted to show you the new pillow we got for "his" sectional! 
He is so happy to have this sectional in the room.  He lays most of the day on the back of the sectional. 
He can see the world going by out the window and also soak up sunshine on the rare occasion we see the sunshine!

 I can start to hang decor pieces and pull this room together. 
I will be back with the whole room finally put together soon.

Have a great weekend.
Today the sun is shining and I am doing a happy dance.

The weekend is predicting more gloom and snow and freezing rain.  Oh, Spring where are you?!!

Create, Bake, Grow & Gather Party


Hi Everyone.  
I finally got the sectional in place.   
Terry was able to move the cable line over to the other wall.

I have the sectional positioned to face into the room and it defines this space more as my living room area.

The armoire needs to be in the corner to let everyone sitting on the sectional see the TV.  So Terry and his trusty tools will make this regular armoire fit better into a corner.
Terry said he can re do the back so the armoire will fit into the corner .  It won't sit out in the room like it does now. 
The TV inside is very thin so we do not need this deep of a TV cabinet.  I think this will work out nicely and fit better.

 I might move the round table in for a coffee/dining table in front of the sectional.

This way I will maybe get my dining seats.  The other option is a long sofa table behind the couch with a couple of chairs or stools.

I will be back hopefully soon with this whole room put together.  I am excited to figure out where I will hang my decor back up on the walls.

Have a great week ahead.

Flexible and Plan B

Happy Sunday Sweet Blogging Friends.

 I am happy to report that my sectional has arrived!!!!

Even with measuring out the dimensions on the floor the sectional has come in bigger than I planned out for this room.  

Having a plan in my mind to make this room work both as a living room and dining area it is not going to play out like I thought.


This is the new sectional.  This was the plan layout for this sectional.  The issue I have is it covering both windows. 
I need that back window to be a focal point in this room and I do not like the sectional covering it.

So plan B is to swing this around to face into the space and it will only block the front window.

This will leave open the focal window and nothing will block it.

The new TV and armoire will have to be moved off of this wall and onto the opposite wall in the living room.
 Where the chair and vent in the wall are open will be the new home for the armoire.  

Terry is feeding the cable up from the basement hook up through the vent duct in the wall.  This way the cable can be hooked up to the TV on this wall.

I will lose my dining area and am trying to make peace with that.  

I really tried hard to make this small space into a comfy living room and also small eating area for us.  Not going to happen!  So I am making peace with that DIY issue.

I do have one more idea to allow us an eating area but will save that idea for now.  I will be back with the whole room put together soon.  

I love the new sectional.  It is really comfy and it has the new performance fabric that is guaranteed to be spill and stain resistant.

Good Thing for Performance Fabric because of this guy loving the new sectional.

He is already positioning himself several different ways on this new sectional for the comfy spot.

We are getting 3 to 4 more inches of snow today.  Ughhhh when will it ever end.  Please Spring come soon!!!!

Have a great new week.
