As I stated in my last blog post, we’ve been in our house for six years now. Over those six years we’ve done quite a bit of painting, decorating, re-decorating, furniture arranging and furniture re-arranging. I tend to get bored with furniture arrangements after some time, so my solution is to move everything around into a new configuration, so the space feels new and fresh.
I was recently gifted an old wood dresser that belonged to my dad and before that, by grandma. I initially had thoughts of replacing my not-so-well-made IKEA dresser with this new-to-me family dresser. When Luke and I moved the dresser from the garage into the house I instantly knew it had to go in the dining room to act as secondary storage on the first floor of our house #smallhouseproblems. Storage has always been a pain point for us, so this seemed like an easy solve. Luckily the dresser fits right into the space – and bonus points that the dresser hides all our extra belongings, therefore making the overall space look more put together. Win win for the Copeland’s!
This week marks SIX YEARS that we’ve been in our house. Every year we take a photo in front of the house and I somehow managed to wear the same brown boots in those photos for the last three years, haha! We love this little house and still feel so lucky that we found it all those years ago.
