I want to move...

"What??...You just moved!!"" (you say)

I know. I mean I want to move my furniture around!
I can see it now, I move everything around and Mr. Boss Man comes home and his head spins around and his eyes turn red and has a little minor panic attack which involves artillery.

Apparently I move furniture too much.
The only reason he gets angry is because he usually stubs his toe in the middle of the night and I hear my name mixed in with some words I dont understand. So I tell him to watch his step. More anger.

Anywho, I dont know how you can be in LOVE with design and not move your furniture around??
So, I am carefully calculating my attack.
First I have been "authorized" to paint the wall in the living room...remember??
So I think when I have everything moved out of the living room, I can justify moving stuff around.
We will see! Stay tuned this weekend to find out if I make it to Monday alive.

But with that said, here is what I am thinking.

I would like to move the office from here:
 To here: With the desk in the middle and the bookcases standing up on each side of it.
Then I would like to move this wood sofa, into the dining room and use it on one side of my dining table.
So instead of having this table here, I would like to move it into the middle of the room and make it a grand dining room.
With this light fixture from Pottery Barn:
and then have this rustic sideboard-
with this white mirror above it
 and with this rug underneath.
What do you think so far??? Do you think it would look good??
Send me some comments and help me live through the weekend!!!

Sometimes I sit around my house dreaming of things I can do. And poof! Its right there in front of my face.
I was seriously staring outside and finally noticed this stump in our backyard.
I brought it in, cleaned the heck out of it...and painted it white.

I love it.
I know, I know what your saying..."it looks cool before you painted it, Cassie!"
But it had bugs and dirt everytime I sat it down.
Painting it eliminated anything living, and held in the dirt I could not get too.

Is there things in your yard you have made into something else??
Let me know!

Design Stocker

Have you noticed anything new??

I emplored the talented Jenna Rammel from {q.a.} Design to reinvent my blog page. I am not at all savy when it comes to computer graphics and stuff like that.

I have to say I LOVE it!
She took very little inspiration I gave her and knew exactly what I had on my mind.

She is pretty much a genius!

She was so great to work with and very kind.

Thank you so much Jenna for making my blog pretty!!!

(I even have a signature!!!)
