Changing and Rearranging

I've been moving things around again.  I rearranged the family room a couple of weeks ago. Switched some shelves around, then yesterday, I rearranged some tabletops.

Here are some of the changes.

I liked the way the family room was arranged, but it was rather crowded on one end, so I decided it was time for a change.  We don't use these french doors, so furniture placement is not a big deal.

I moved the accent table from it's old spot where the love seat sits to the wall where the recliner was.  The love seat was sitting where the recliner is.  This opened up quite a bit of room and allows traffic to go through the door you see to the breakfast nook and sun room.  That area was blocked by the love seat and recliner.  I'm enjoying the more open arrangement.

You'll also notice that I changed out the table top in the corner. I switched the tall lamp with the burgundy shade with the rooster lamp in the dining room.
I decided to move some white items under the magnolia picture and move the darker colors elsewhere in the house.   "Don't know if I like this".

I decided I did not like the rooster lamp in the family room, so I brought the same lamp I had back and switched the shade for one with a basket weave and also revamped the items on the table.  Below is the 'latest' version of this rearrange.
I like this version much better.  I like the look I achieved by adding the rustic lamp shade to the fancy base.  A brand new look!!
  I plan to add some white hydrangeas to the pitcher.

I switched out a tall shelf in the powder room with this white bookcase I painted with ASCP Olde White.  Everything in the powder room is now white except for some of the accessories. All accessories were thrifty finds.

This mirror was black, but I updated it some time ago with ASCP Olde White also.

Have you changed or rearranged anything recently?  I'd love to see what you've done!!
