January seems to be a month where I take a step back and take a fresh look at my home. With the lull after the holidays, it's a perfect time to revamp and revitalize my home. However, January is usually a month where I also take a step back and try to cut back on spending...especially after the holidays!
It's a great time to get a fresh look just by changing a few things around.
You know that I completely rearranged all of the furniture in my family room last week. In case you didn't see the before and after, you can click here.
While I was in the family room I noticed that the lamp on the sofa table looked a bit too formal for the room. I felt like it would look better in the living room. So I went into the living room to see if I could find a spot for the lamp.
In the living room I noticed this lamp...which when I really started looking at it seemed a little oversized for this room. So I decided to do a little switcheroo.
I moved the tall lamp to the family room, which is a two-story family room with 17' ceilings, allowing the larger scale of the lamp to work so much better in here.
Then I moved the smaller, more delicate lamp into the living room.
It works so much better in there too.
It's funny...I have never considered moving either of those lamps before, but I should have done this a long time ago. It breathes new life into both lamps. Another no-cost redecorating idea.
How about you? Any no-cost decorating going on in your home?
Have a great weekend.
Both the lamps are beautiful and I agree, they do look better switched. Isn't it fun to see something look new with things you already have. Hugs, Marty
That was a great switch out, Judy. I've done the lamp switcheroo myself and then wondered why I didn't do it sooner.
Pretty lamps Judy! It's always fun changing things up, especially when you don't have to spend a dime to do it! Have a great weekend:)
I'm doing a lot of painting as I reorganize. I figure if I'm pulling everything out of a room and redoing it I might as well paint now, too. That's as far as I'm getting right now. I do love just swapping things around for a fresh look...suddenly something hidden turns in to a gem :)
The switcheroo worked like a charm.
For me I'm painting everything that is nailed down for 2013. A fresh new start to my 100 year old home.
Just love the "switch"....i just love it when we have those "epiphanies"...After all the Christmas decor is put away..it is such a fun time to "rearrange" things for a new fresh look!!...
