Home Maid Simple: Creating a sitting area

Creating a sitting area

It has happened again. I always want to rearrange the furniture, but for some reason I never do until I'm pregnant. Some hormone or something really kicks in and my motivation moves up a couple notches. We have this very nice bay window right inside our front door. Although it is nice, it is also a bit of an awkward area. I had turned it into a craft area for awhile, but it just became a dumping ground for everything. Eventually we want to put in a window seat. In the meantime though, here's some arrangements I've come up with this morning.
the dumping grounds

All cleaned out

2 chairs with side table

1 chair with side table

2 chairs with bass drum table

1 chair with bass drum table.
I'm leaning towards the 1 chair with the side table. I may even pull out a bookshelf to go next to the chair.  That may just cause more messes though. Opinions?


  1. I'm leaning toward the two chairs with the smaller table. The first table seems too big.

  2. I agree with Nicole - I think that I like the 2 chairs w/the bass drum table too.

    i am also a pregnant furniture mover - used to drive my hubby crazy! Good luck with finding your perfect arrangement.
