Have you ever read that children's book, "If You Give a Moose a Muffin"?
That sort of scenario happens to me in decorating all the time...one change leads to another, and another, and pretty soon there's a trail of switcheroo all through your house.
I LOVE that.
So, it all started when my friend gave me a rug. I decided to put it in our second floor hallway. Until now we've kept that space as a bit of a play area and it seemed like the kids were old enough to have a mature update.
But if you give a girl a rug...
then she'll have to move the old rug into the 5 year old's reading and kitchen area.
She'll have to let the 12 year old have the old hall table in his room.
The playhouse (from atop the table) will have to move downstairs,
where it hides nicely behind the couch out of sight.
And then she'll have to replace the playhouse with a shelf.
The shelf will be perfect for storing some art supplies...
which will need to be retrieved from the nightmare linen closet.
to be continued...
