Living Room Mini Makeover

Calling this a "makeover" is definitely an overstatement, but oh well.

Today we got our new custom DVD case from a friend of ours who does woodworking (so gorgeous!) so we changed out our cabinets and moved some things around.

Here is the new cabinet (on the right) and the old bookshelf (left).

Definitely needed to go.

Unfortunately we didn't have a replacement in mind, but after wandering around my house for a while I remembered my sweet robins-egg blue/green antique table that was awkwardly hanging out in my kitchen holding cookbooks.  And what better to hold cookbooks than a stray bookcase?  I tell you.

Here is the table in its new spot:


I don't have a picture of it, but I assure you the bookcase is now happily fulfilling its calling holding all my cookbooks in the kitchen.

One more view:

Is it really important for you to know why Scoobi Doo is on the TV?  Let's blame my husband and leave it at that.

I like it!  I wasn't sure at first as it's much smaller than what was there before, but I love the table, so it's growing on me.  Plus, I put my ceramic bird on it in the meantime, and bird statues make everything better!


  1. Anytime Batman and Robin are on the same show with Scooby Doo and the gang our TV will need to be on. It is like Halley's Comet: such a phenomenon happens but once in a lifetime.

  2. Ah, yes, the little-known Scoob-bat-rob trifecta is a rare creature indeed. We shall be ever-watchful for its next appearance.

  3. Your blog doesn't show up in my feed and it's making me madddddd! Doesn't your husband realize that he'll have plenty of cartoons to watch over his lifetime? I love your house. It looks perfect!

  4. Why?!? It shows up on mine! He is a big fan of all superhero cartoons. As much as I enjoy teasing him about that, I kinda like them too.
