Rearranging Our Home + A New (Old) Cabinet

We did a little rearranging of our home & move this new (old) cabinet to a new location!

During the Christmas holiday, my husband & I rearranged our home a little bit.

Our house is super open concept, so finding places for things can be quite a challenge!  It’s a lot of work trying to figure out where things can go so they usually end up in one place forever!

I’ve been slowly trying to rearrange little things & during Christmas break, my husband helped me move the bigger pieces around.  After talking about it for years, we finally moved our couch & love seat!  We weren’t sure if they would work on opposite walls & one day we just finally did it.  I’m loving the end result, but doing this displaced this cabinet.

First, let me talk a little about this cabinet!  I picked it up from a local barn sale a couple months ago & it has been a total lifesaver.  With such little storage in our home, this cabinet is perfect for hiding all the things!  I had another cabinet before this that held quite a bit, but this one easily holds double the amount of what that one did!

The cabinet used to sit at the end of our living room beside the love seat but became displaced when we put the couch there.  We decided to move it right beside our front door.  It seems like I’m always switching up that area beside the door (Here’s what it looked like in the summer!)!  I think it’s because it is always the first place my mind goes when I try to redecorate our house!  Anyway, we put the cabinet there & I’m loving it right now!  I put our calendar on top of the cabinet & did a little decorating on the wall above.

I don’t know why, but I used to think that once I put things in our home, they were stuck in that place forever!  I think that contributed a lot to why I was so upset with our house.  I’ve talked about the long term problems of our house before, but rearranging has definitely been giving me life right now!  Things don’t have to stay in one place forever!
