|My too large kitchen|
Right now, we have a dining room with table, 6 chairs, sideboard, china closet and a few other pieces of furniture. Except for my sewing room, its my favorite room in the house even though we hardly use it.
We also have a kitchen, with a table and 4 chairs.
This is a lot of seating for 2 people who don't often have company for dinner.
|Trying to decide where these will go|
But what about the dining room? My current set is dark wood. Its beautiful, and it really suits the room it's in now. The new dining room is probably the same size, but it's lighter and the woodwork is painted white. It just won't look the same.
We were at the new house yesterday for the inspection, and I realized that, except for the kitchen table and chairs, I could probably make it all fit. But I'm not going to. This move is my chance to lighten up, whether I like the process or not.
Turns out what I love about my current dining room furniture is how good it looks in my current dining room. The few pieces I'm actually sentimentally attached to match the other set. So I'm letting go. I'm sure I have other things that will fit into those empty spaces I found yesterday, and it might be a nice change to actually be able to see the baseboards.
How about you? Do you have irrational attachments to certain pieces of furniture?
