I Like Big Maps and I Cannot Lie.
The never ending game of musical furniture that happens at this house is pretty epic. I mean, its so good its down right joyful.
I have this spot in my living room that is sort of hard (not like “CRAP! What am I going to do here!?” hard but you know, still a little complicated.) My living room is twice as long as it is wide, which makes for interesting furniture placement. I made you a little diagram of the way the furniture is placed so you can see what I am talking about. The TV is mounted on the wall above Vicky. There is no where else to move it. So the furniture needs to be centered on that wall.
That leaves a really great space between the chair and the wall with windows that isn’t really used.
You have to sort of treat it like its own little area because anything that goes on that wall needs to be centered above the couch. Does that make sense? Cause it makes sense in my head.
So just like most of my good stories begin I was at the thrift store…(yes, I really do stop by most days. And no, I don’t always find stuff). I was making my rounds and stopped in the “big art” section and saw this incredible gallery wrapped map of Dixie National Forest. The best part is that it was only $12. Booyah.
Now back to the opening paragraph about musical furniture.
This little chest has lived in my hallway for the better part of a year. But since that has been totally overhauled (reveal next week!) I found something else to live there.
I love this little white guy because its not very deep, so it can sort of go anywhere. And anywhere it went. Right under the Dixie National Forest Map.
I love how its small enough that the map can drop down behind it and still be seen, but it doesn’t look strange.
Perfect fit! (well, for now anyways….)
Are you a musical furniture type girl or do things have a home and live there eternally?
