before and after

This isn't the most exciting update to probably anyone other than us...

... but we got new furniture last week! And we are very excited about it.

This was the living room before:

And here it is now...

We love it.

Of course, there were a few hiccups along the way but everything seems to be working out quite well now.

And after unscrewing all the feet from the old sectional, disconnecting the stairway railing, and "helping" Ray get the darn thing downstairs, we were able to move the old sectional into what was the playroom/craft room.

The other half of the room is still my crafting/scrapbooking space...

And the girls still have access to their playroom toys and everything.

Strategic planning at its best. What you can't see is that the too-large sectional doesn't really fit all that well downstairs but it works OK. There is probably a 2- or 3-foot gap behind the couch that Lola turned into her not-so-secret big-girl area, where she has set up all of her American Girl doll accessories and furniture. Millie can go back there, but it is difficult and Lola really does like having her own space for it all.
One of the more difficult moments was waiting for the delivery of the new furniture, on a rainy day when we had no furniture in the living room. But we made do, and Millie had quite a blast.

It's funny how I don't as much care anymore if they run around on the sectional or jump on the cushions.  *smile*

So everything worked out, in the end -- and we're loving our new setups.
