I love to move the furniture around in my house. Seriously, it’s a thing. I suddenly become bored with whatever arrangement I have and decide, no, actually that chair doesn’t look good there. Shouldn’t we buy a bookcase maybe? What was I thinking when I put that desk there? Moving furniture around is not always an easy task. I have always been a lightweight, so over the years I’ve developed all kinds of techniques to move furniture. First of all, I absolutely love any furniture with wheels. Secondly, wicker and rattan furniture weighs a lot less than wood, and finally, if you put old towels under furniture, you can slide just about anything on a hard floor, provided you empty the furniture first of any inhabitants.
My husband is amazingly patient with all the movement of furniture from one spot to another and sometimes back to the original spot. He is called to action when his muscles are required because my other techniques proved insufficient. Round and around the rooms we go with furniture moving from one spot to another. I often dream of having just the right furniture in just the right places creating a perfect mood of organized peace.This has remained a dream inspired by photos in magazines.
Truth is I find moving furniture, changing pictures on the walls, creating different decor on my mantle to be energizing. Suddenly, my home is alive with new possibilities. It no longer feels stagnant because change is in the air! My cats become energized as well. They chase each other through the house and explore each area with renewed interest.
When I am finished, and all the furniture has reached what I know is its new temporary resting place, I sit back and admire my masterpiece. Yep, that chair really is better in the other bedroom, and moving the desk was a good idea, but I wonder, should we buy a bookcase? Now, where would that go, and what would I have to move?
