So, our standard of living has dropped significantly over the past few weeks.
Life is just kind of crazy.
We're surrounded by boxes (and things waiting in not-so-neatly-stacked piles to be put in boxes), and the combination of bare walls and unsightly box mounds had me feeling a bit nuts.
So, I rearranged the living room furniture. Of course! Don't all people rearrange furniture just a couple weeks before they move?
And, I have to say, I LOVE IT!
I wanted to arrange our furniture like this when we first moved in, but our old couch was too big to fit across the room like this, so I had to get a little creative with the awkward L-shaped space. It finally hit me last night that our new couch is much smaller, and I felt a little inspired to do something other than pack.
These pictures also showcase a couple of new craigslist finds I've purchased lately. New accent table (which is currently being used as a coffee table) and a lovely chess table with two chairs. They were both a steal of a deal!
So. I did this to keep me from going insane. (Well, that's what I'm telling myself to justify rearranging the furniture just weeks before we load it into a truck!)

And, to keep it real, whenever I'm photographing pictures of my clean house, there is almost always a mess around the corner. :)
And now, back to the crazy!
