We have a big living room, but it's not an easy room to arrange. It's 13 feet by almost 24 feet, but there's a sliding glass door (that has been painted shut for as long as I can remember) that is 12 feet wide (our greatest fear is that it gets broken some how) and four doors and a closet to work around. That, and we're trying to make the room be both a living room and kid-proof office space. Oi.
So, instead of just moving stuff around, I made up a two dimensional graph paper scale model of the living room, cutouts of all the furniture, and we slid things around until we both liked it. Here's hoping it all works out the way we planned.
A huge bonus for the way we planned it all out, is that I'll have work space in the living room and out of the laundry room, so I can be in there to watch the girls more easily and still get to work on things!
We're planning on moving everything on Saturday, leaving Sunday to tweak anything necessary while the girls are at grandma's house and not underfoot. In order to get everything moved in that short time, I'm going to spend as much of my free time this week boxing up books, dvds, and anything else that's small and not nailed down to get it out of the way and empty up the bookcases. We're hoping to get it all settled down before hubby's new computer comes in, so it can be installed in it's permanent home. Plus, "grandma" is on spring break this week and can help out a bit with the girls, which is a godsend.
With all of that said, I probably won't be able to post much "interesting crafty stuff" this week. As soon as the dust
