Sideboard savior!

The sideboard is here and it has solved all of my problems! Ok, not really. But I do love it. As usual, I’m kicking myself for not taking a before shot of the space, but just picture it more chaotic. And then the sideboard came and it looked like this for a bit:


Like that new bookcase against the wall? Me too! [Oh, that was awkward. Did you say, “Yes!”? I thought I heard a “Yes!” Moving on…] You’re wondering about that big silver and black thing on the wall, I can tell. It’s a fireplace of sorts. We had it in the condo and when we moved, we stuck it there. It’s from Overstock and it takes three gel fuel containers and it looks like a fireplace. Kinda. I actually like it, but I don’t like the big black panel against the wall in this room that doesn’t get enough light as it is. So, it had to go. We moved the art that had been on the wall that now houses New Bookshelf Number Two (the one most visible in the above pic) and we are looking at this now:


Although I love love love hanging art in groups like this, I’ve come to realize I’m never going to get it right. One, I don’t have the patience required for it. Two, I don’t think I have the precise math skills for it. And three, our house is all crooked. So, even if I had it exactly right on the wall, the furniture isn’t going to be sitting perfectly straight on our uneven floors, so the art will inevitably look somewhat crooked. I’m just letting it go and enjoying it as it is. Do I sound convincing?

Stay tuned for kateandgracie’s first guest post! Coming soon.

    Beautiful job. I know what you mean about hanging groups of pictures. I find myself looking closely at every grouping we have. And breathing in and then breathing out.
