Rearranging the living room

This past weekend I finally got around to installing new flooring in the living room. At 12’ x 22’, it was a bit of a task, just ask my muscles.

As I laid the new floor, I thought about how to arrange such an awkward space. I hate walking around things, probably because I’ve always felt like a bull in a china shop, so there had to be a path that would lead from the entry to the back sliding doors.  It meant giving up my rustic bench, but I recently purchased a Thomasville Allegro desk that is just right for behind the sofa.

I have painted one of the knobs gold to see if I like it, and I do.

Of course one thing leads to another and since I found the tv too high when above the mantel, I have to find a spot for it.  Otherwise, I’m really liking this layout.

I can’t tell you how happy I am to finally be rid of the disgusting parquet. Yippee!

I still need to spiff up the place with some accessories, and hang the artwork.  I have a chair for the desk in the makeover stage that will be finished shortly.
