See? I told you!

As promised!! Pictures from last weekend's nesting orgy.
This picture highlights a few changes. From top to bottom: 1. Three plates hanging above the bookcase. 2. Small lamp on sofa table behind sofa. 3. Children's books moved to kid's corner, in dining room area, and photo albums stored on bottom shelf. 4. New rug from Cost Plus!!

Changes to breakfast corner. From left to right: 1. Screen moved to half wall. 2. Plant moved from downstairs accent table, to ledge behind screen. 3. Pictures (which will go to the framer by this weekend) hung. 4. You can barely see it there in the right hand corner - kitty tower moved from near the windows. 5. Also, not in photo - lamp moved from corner to sofa.

Ah. The masterpiece. The culmination of my evil plan. The DINING ROOM. (duh-duh-DUUUUMMMMMM.)

The buffet you see was split up into three parts (gotta love IKEA): the middle part, a dresser, was in the guest room. The two side cabinets were in Cliff's Man Cave. All three have now come back together in the dining room. The lantern light moved from the floor to the buffet. The art moved from the left wall to this wall - two other dancers flank the windows on the right wall (which I didn't take pictures of because one of them is still boarded up from the fire - being replaced starting tomorrow). And, of course, our beautiful table is covered in crap at the moment. But that will change soon.

I also need to hang a piece of painted cloth my parents brought back from Africa. I bought a curtain rod and some curtain clips, and that will go up on the left wall. Pictures to follow.

So, lots of work done. I'm so happy with the results, and I can't wait to show it all off during the holidays!
