Rearranging Furniture

One of the most fun ways to redecorate without spending any money is to rearrange your furniture. When I was little I used to change the layout of my bedroom every couple of months to make it feel new and fresh again.

We're still procrastinating about installing the crown molding, but we're also planning for a big makeover of our spare room. Right now the spare room serves as my dressing room and houses all my clothes and the curbside vanity I made over for my jewelry.  

The makeover isn't going to include the same furniture or colors and I was getting sad about parting with my vanity, until I realized I could just rearrange the existing furniture in our bedroom!

Last year I posted about our gallery wall and the trunk I made over to hold our bedding. Since the vanity and the trunk are roughly the same size I decided to switch them out. Here is what our room looked like before:

And here is it now:

I added a few new things, this cute bird jewelry holder my mom bought me for Christmas.

And my latest curbside find, an amazing antique piano bench! The top needs a little repair, but I love all the character and the awesome little feet. It fits just perfectly under the vanity.

So next time you're in the mood to redecorate, try switching up what you have first! I'm still hoping the trunk I moved out will work in our new spare room, but it will probably need a new paint job! I'll post details when we get it all planned out.
