Who wants to paint?

If it wasn't obvious from the previous post, my dresser is now in the living room.  And I'll admit to the fact that this little move involved more than my little green rug trick.  I had to reorganize and purge my entire closet so my underwear wasn't also in the living room. 

Why did I make the switch?  I hated the proportion of the small cabinet with the components under the large TV.  The cord also was distracting to me, but most importantly, cold air from my bedroom vent wasn't circulating like I had wanted with my bed against the wall in my master bedroom.  To move it meant moving the dresser out.

Once again, the following room arrangement cost $0 in new furniture.  (Although I did switch out my box spring for IKEA's wooden slats - around $30.

Next up?  A paint job and a pair of light, bright, white curtains to better flow with the living room. 

Living Room 3.0 - A Closer Look

I'm still loving the third reincarnation of the living room space.  Here's a closer look at how I've transformed the space for $0:

Switching Things Around...

Some may call rearranging furniture an obsession, others a disease.  Me?  A fun way of spending a Sunday night.
