Moving Things Around

One night, a couple of weeks back, I was sick and up all night.  While I was sitting on the couch, watching Martha Stewart, this huge-I MEAN HUGE-idea came to me.  I have an odd layout in my faimly room, and the Chateau Chanticleer being on the only window wall did not help.  The photos don't show it very well-use your imagination.  AND I know I look like a hoarder, but all that stuff goes in the dollhouse.  All I have to do is put on the doors and roof and the Chateau will be ready to finish (it should take 6 to 12 more months).  Any way, these are the BEFORE pictures.

The terra cotta leather chairs use to be on the right.

I am so excited we did this.  I can not believe there is sooooo much stuff in building a mini house.  Anyway, you can certainly see how crowded it was.  The base the house sets on is 3 ft X 6 ft.  So below are the after pictures.  I love it.
Now the doll-house is in the useless corner and the chairs fill out the seating area.  Now all I have to do is get the doll house finished.  I really can not believe we did this.  And I really can not believe I did not think of it sooner.  Before I had a swing arm wall lamp between the chairs.  I don't need that now, so I think I am going to put the lamp to the right of the dollhouse so that corner is not so dark.  There is going to be a conservatory on the right side of the house and it will need to be illuminated.

My problem is the opposite! I have soooooo many windows in my house that I don't have enough walls to put my dollhouses against. Want to come organize my dollhouse locations?

I think it looks a lot more balanced in the after pictures. Boyz howdie do I need to take a fresh look at my rooms!

Well, a second set of eyes usually helps. I was watch HGTV (second set of eyes) and it came to me. I just love the new arangement and love the new dollhouse working space.
