We've done a little switching up in the living room. Our arrangement was like this before (except we had added an ikea shelf as our tv stand). It was nice and cozy, and to be honest, I really liked it. BUT, it only officially seated 4 people (3 comfortably), and it was feeling very, very small with all of Eloise's toys. It was time for an overhaul. As sad as I was to take E's kitchen out of here (she just loves it so much), I'm glad we did. We've reduced her down to two toy bins in this room to reduce the extra stuff. We inherited a chair from some friends who are moving, and brought E's rocker in here as well (tore my heart apart a little). And here is the result - seating for six or seven and a lot less clutter.
P.S. I know I have a lot of Christmas decorations up already, but I really feel this isn't decorated enough yet. I think it needs a little more warmth to it, maybe?
Taking out E's rocker and switching up the TV stand meant moving this shelf to her room…and we made room for the kitchen.
