Living Room Refresher

This weekend I spent some time rearranging and fluffing in the living room....
The best before shot I could find.  But since I can't move things around on my own right now, I am at my teams mercy (aka T and a sweet friend) and quite grasp the importance of a good before and after.
 I painted this room last year and lined the book shelves with scrapbook paper to see if I liked the contrast of having a dark color on the back...I liked it for a while, but was ready for a change.
I'm really glad that I used the scrapbook paper and not paint because it was as easy as pulling the paper off!
Since I can't get to my stash in our attic and T isn't fond of searching for my treasures while I yell out descriptions from the bottom of the steps, I made due with what was around.
The best part?  I didn't buy a single thing.
A friend and client is replacing these chairs and asked if I knew anyone who could use them....yes, I do. 
 I love the extra seating in here because this is our only living area and we need to maximize seating without making it feel crowded.
Sometimes a little rearranging and editing is all you need!
