The State of Our Living Room

I mentioned in this Instagram post that I had rearranged the living room. We recently upgraded to a king size mattress and needed to reconfigure the living room for it to fit. If our living room/bedroom/dining room was staying the same small size, we probably wouldn’t have expanded from a queen bed to a king bed.

Speaking of upgrading to a king; it’s amazing. We’ve been through sharing a queen bed with a baby – twice – and I can’t believe we ever managed without a larger bed. Granted, this picture still depicts the anatomy of our bed. In my defense, I am pregnant and sleep with four pillows each night. It’s for the growing baby, okay?!

So the bed is behind our couch, which sits in front of the television. I snapped these pictures in a hurry. My son was reading a book for homeschool on the couch and there were piles of laminate floor samples behind me. Needless to say, don’t be fooled by an apparently clean house. In actuality, it was a hot mess.

Speaking of a hot mess… since taking these photos, this happened. Now everything is arranged pretty much the same way but pushed up four feet closer the the couch. We moved the tweed chair into the girls’ shared room and had to remove the coat rack and the shelves in the dining room.

The other side of that plastic “wall” is still a work in progress. (See this post for more pictures.) Drywall is going in this weekend and then I presume that it will be textured (like most walls in Florida). After that, we should be in the home stretch. We just need to survive all that drywall dust. Oh yes, and the flooring mess. We’ll save that talk for another day, though.
