Another area sorted(nearly)

This area in the living room used to have a sideboard which was full of "stuff" very little of which we used or actually needed!!So I decided this unused space would be ideal to move the computer into.I have a lovely big frame with a montage of Emily through the years above the desk and have framed some positive affirmations and have put them right next to the computer as a reminder.



It works well,still getting used to coming in here to use this space but getting more used to it each day.Just a little drama when the shelf on the wall came crashing down!! Alan has refitted it using very long screws and has requested I don't overload it again,oops!!!

On the other side of this half of the living room we had a sofa(now dyed and in the sunroom)however we never sat up this end of the room and so I now have storage and filing(makes doing bills and filing info so much quicker now everything has it's place)which means it is a much more usable space.Still need some more ornamenty things and perhaps another bookcase in the alcove but it is very nearly done and is in use every day.



The other half of the room still has furniture stored awaiting sale.Most of the items have now gone and I hope the last few things go soon, however as it could be up to 11 weeks before the sofas come it will be quite some time before we can get it back together.

Looks great. I think I had that same shelf fall too. Too many books...Have a great day!

I've been doing a lot of rearranging lately too. It feels nice when it is all done and while rearranging it feels cathertic.

Why is your house so lovely and tidy and mine not? What's your secret?

Your house looks so much emptier than mine - where do you hide it all? My poor house is crammed top to bottom with stuff (and it shows!). What's worse is that I've been decluttering for about 2 years now and the house still looks full!

Thank you all for your comments:-)Gotta remember these photos were taken at it's best when we had just finished the reorganising:-)
This has been a really serious declutter and everything has been looked at and if it has been hidden in a cupboard and not touched for ages it is going.This has then meant we could use the space for storage of all the things we do want to keep and now everything has a place so it is easier to tidy away.In most instances this does work and day to day I can keep on top of it,having one child also helps;-))However after two sleepovers this week things are most certainly not as tidy!!!
