Rearranging Bookcases

IMG_0987

It’s no secret that since we youngest three girls stopped playing dolls, etc. in the family room, it has turned into a bit of a storage room. I won’t say exactly what all is in it, except that there are three bookcases full of books! And none of them match! When furniture doesn’t match or at least coordinate it makes the room feel less cozy, and then no one wants to spend any time there. So we decided to rearrange the bookcases as a start to mending the atmosphere in the “toy” room!

This bookcase, which was in the guest room closet, matches the tall bookcase in the family room. We exchanged them and we don’t know why we didn’t do it sooner!

As soon as we had this bookcase moved in and filled, the room started to feel more like a room instead of a place to store excess things. It was amazing how it just fixed the room! We still have a lot to do before this room is just right, but at least we’ve begun.

Thank you for visiting A Homespun Country Life!
