I finally got all the Christmas deco put away. I always use the dining table to stage things and help me get organized (with a padding on top of course) so it was nice to see it freed up once again! The day after Christmas I found these new finials and the deco ball back in my hometown before we headed home. I intended to make an arrangement on the coffee table but they just didn't look good there so I gave them a home on the dining table! They look so much better here especially with the fabric table runner. I had the birds and decided they fit in too.
As soon as the plastic tubs were all put away I got the vacuum out and decided to move some of the furniture around. As you can see I use those furniture movers and it makes the whole process so much easier.
This etagere in the corner got a bit of a makeover this time too.
I emptied it and played around with different things even the new finials, but that was a big flop!
I wanted to see some more color on it so I decided on a fern and my cast iron urn. I removed a few of the items that had been there a while and added family pictures along with a few other things. It's been the same way since I got it 3 years ago so it was due for a new look!
I mentioned a while back that I had a picture to hang above the tv. It's not in keeping with the room's general decorating but it's important to me to display it since Dan's sister had created it. I did a post about how her picture was among 250 pictures that were submitted and also ended up in a book called The Art of Sleeping Bear Dunes. Please visit this link to see the full story "here".
We had it custom framed last year but I couldn't decide on where to hang it. After we moved the tv to this wall I finally saw a spot for it.
This is pretty much the same as before.
This area got a little updating. I just like to move my deco items around to new spots and see it from a different point of view!
It's been bitter cold here 7 deg. this morning but the sun came out briefly in the afternoon which psychologically makes it seem so much warmer!
I brought my "plum" colored pillows back out and will enjoy them until spring I imagine!
I put the game table at the end of the sofa near the wall which I haven't done before. A few things from the etagere ended up on the top and I like it!

Next up is the kitchen dining area!
