Another I Don't Think Like That Post
At Abby's birthday party Michele, my sister-in-law and now close neighbor, and Mindy, a homeschooling friend in the congregation, and I were sitting in the living room chatting. The men were downstairs and the kids were all over the house and yard playing. I asked them their opinion about moving the dining room hutch and piano so that the table could be straight in the room and not at an angle.
Mindy jumped up with a loud, excited squeal and said, "I love this game." And away her brain went and ideas began flowing. Before the end of the evening, the furniture in my living room and dining room (basically one room with two half wall pillar dividers in the middle for visual division) were rearranged.
I would have never thought to move the piano into the living room like Mindy suggested. But it works and I love it. Both rooms now feel more spacious. It amazed me how simply moving the same furniture in different arrangements can make the room feel more spacious.
I'm glad to have a friend like Mindy. She thinks of all sorts of things I would never have. Plus she loves to help and share her thoughts and ideas and even her hard work. I sure have learned a lot from her.
And the dining room hutch that I asked about which sparked furniture rearrangement? It is still in the same place.
