Swapping Furniture


Because our home is for sale I haven't been able to make any major changes around here.
There is nothing like being in the middle of a big project and getting a call that you have
a showing in one hour.

In other words...I am bored!

To help with the boredom I have been moving furniture around and doing some small
projects.

 The French style buffet in the dining room now resides in the living room.



The urn is filled with twenty marble eggs that were found at a thrift store along
with the alabaster grapes. 


The paper whites were planted before Thanksgiving and they are just now starting to bloom!
Whats up with that?


View from dining room.


The clock was also moved to the living room....


Now the antique Normandy armoire has a new home in the dining room. My
plan is to add shelving inside the two large doors to display more transferware.

Hubby hates it when I get bored because he knows there will be work involved!

If you would like to see decorating plans for our next home visit my
recent guest post at  The Enchanted Home .

Thanks for dropping by!
Hugs,
Sherry

I'll be partying at:

Your home is just beautiful ... and so clean! Isn't it amazing how just moving a few things around can make a room look so different?

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I am bored too~I will come over and help some more!! I love that clock and armoire Sherry~

Blondie's Journal said...

I have been shifting furniture around, too, getting ready to make over my family room. I love how a piece makes a new home in a different room and changes the entire look. I really love your armoire and your paper whites are so tall! I am so surprised as well that they just bloomed. They go downhill so fast after that though, so I enjoy how they look before they bloom, too!

Stay busy...and warm!

XO,
Jane

I love your house. I am so dreading putting our house on the market this Spring...really dreading all the work and keeping it "perfect" for showings. I hope yours sells soon~

You do a good job of displaying and staging and fluffing- xo Diana

Korrie@RedHenHome said...

Somehow I didn't remember that you were trying to sell your house, too. I feel your pain! I keep thinking of all the things I would *like* to do to this house, and then I have to remind myself that I simply can't. Your home is ALREADY gorgeous, though!

Andrea said...

it is all looking gorgeous!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Love the changes. You have some great furniture pieces. I love that clock.

Kelly said...

That's too funny! Good luck with your house showing. That's a good sign though. This is usually a slow time of year for house sales.

Honey at 2805 said...

The changes and moves you have made are all just wonderful. You have so many lovely furniture pieces and accessories to "play" with.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Sherry,

You have a beautiful home. I hope it sells soon. Florida sounds like the perfect place to move.

Thanks to sharing a nice picture of new look of furniture. Beautiful room furniture is all about laid-back comfort. Usually in natural or light-colored wood, this no-nonsense style for the family and a no frills sensibility.

Sherry I love love love that clock and your armoire looks beautiful in your dining room! Would love to see more of your pretty living room!

sissie said...

Hi Sherry,
Your home is so beautiful that I'm surprised it hasn't sold already.
Of course the economy isn't helping any.

We are putting ours back on the market this spring and will try again.

Best of luck.

hugs

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I know this feeling well, Sherry! It was hard to try and appease that boredom with small projects, but I found they gave me an outlet. Great clock and I love your sideboard!

Babs said...

How much fun to move things around and have them fit the space and give you a new, fresh look! Lucky person/s who buys your house. It's gorgeous.
Saying a prayer that your house sells soon.
Have a great weekend,
Babs

Susan said...

What a gorgeous home! Love that piece of furniture!

Bonnie said...

It looks fabulous! I love everything. Wish we were closer I could satisfy your boredom moving things around at my house!!!!

I have a white urn like yours and just love it.

Richard Cottrell said...

I know what you mean, where my house is not for sale, I get calls out of the blue wanting to take a tour. I try and keep it ready. Richard from My Old Historic House.

Olive Cooper said...

Sherry, at least you have beautiful furniture to shop from and move around. I especially like the clock. hugs, olive

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

I am having the bug to move things around, too. We had our house on the market for a year and a half and finally took it off the market this November. Just tired of it! Will probably try again. It is so nice to leave the house "not quite perfect" and not worry that someone will come while you are gone. Linda p.s. Love the changes!

Debra @ Common Ground said...

I'm bored too, would you come to my house and swap some of MY furniture?!!

The Polished Pebble said...

Hi Sherry, moving things around is always fun!

Your house looks wonderfula nd I'm sure it will have a SOLD sign out front soon!

Kathysue said...

Sherry this is a perfect example of shopping your own home and seeing things from a new point of view. It is not an easy thing for most homeowners to do on their own, but you my dear have mastered this task.Love all of your changes! Happy weekend,

Our home is on the market too and it's difficult. How long has your home been for sale?

I love that white and clean look of your beautiful house. All your moves are great, they make your home look so new and fresh, I love moving around things, or artwork too. Have a nice Sunday.

Light is the key to paperwhites. Once they sprout they need to be in the brightest light you can provide.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Everything is so beautiful. I love your furniture and your style. Everything is always done to perfection. Hope you get to move to your new home soon. Hugs, Marty

French-Kissed said...

Hi Sherry,

Your home is looking so beautiful...I love all of your blue and white...I wouldn't be surprised if your buyer asks you to leave everything just like it is...love the idea of displaying transfer ware in that gorgeous French cabinet. Hope you are feeling well.

Bliss said...

That sounds like a new reality show, you bring your furniture to my house and I'll bring mine to yours! You have some great furniture pieces. At least you don't eat when you're bored!

You have a very beautiful home, Sherry!

Barefoot in Blue Jeans said...

It all looks great. I'm one to move stuff around all the time but since I started work I don't have the time to do it at home....so I do it at my store. Oh well better there than no where. It's still fun.

The Kramer Angle said...

Becca said...

Sherry, I love the changes! Your home always looks gorgeous, and I'm sure it will sell in no time ... you'll be decorating your new "abode" before you know it!

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

So pretty! I don't know why your home hasn't sold already. I'm about to be in the same boat. Such a pain to keep everything show ready.
Love all your inspiration for your new home. I'm a huge fan of blue of course!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Oh it is gorgeous! I can't believe it has not sold yet. My house is so small I have tried, but there is no way to rearrange and I am bored stiff! Maybe you could visit your son when the Fancy Flea is on!

Gail said...

All so pretty staging. I especially like the marble eggs and urn.

Maybe the paper white blooms are waiting until the future homeowner comes to view your home. Best wishes in selling.

Reba and Eldarose, sisters, friends and co-bloggers said...

Sherry,

Love your changes. I didn't know you were changing homes. I just got done with that. Now, we're living in chaos and slowly but surely getting organized in our new house.

Cannot wait to see all the projects you will come up with in your new home.

Sincerely,

Sherry, that was too funny, but it looks gorgeous!! Love the French armoire in the dining room and that clock is amazing. We are moving but not for two years. I am so itching for a new house, since we have been here for 22 years. But I have to wait until the baby graduates from high school. wait, wait, wait......

Pamela said...

Love the changes Sherry! You have such fabulous pieces in your home. I can relate with you on the waiting and moving. It is NOT fun. I am praying we get to stay put here. If not there are so many projects to get done before June.

Tardevil said...

Our husband's must be related b/c my husband hates hearing me say, "I've been thinking". ;O) Your home is gorgeous. You should have no problems selling it.

The French Hutch said...

Sherry love the changes you've made. I'm getting a good look at the armoire, I think we have similar pieces. I really love the vignette with the white urn and white eggs. Fabulous!

Hi Sherry!

First of all... I have always loved that clock. Your home is so beautiful yet very comfortable looking. I love how you are able to use classic pieces yet keep a since of casual living.

Kathy said...

I have several projects - you can come and be bored with me here! I was wondering if you moved those things yourself - I have 'found a way' when I move things around - but I gathered you had your Dear Husband's help :)
It is fun to change things around and they look great! Thank you for sharing with Home and Garden Thursday!
God Bless,
Kathy

SHERRY HART said...

Love these glimpses of your home....maybe it is a good thing that things are in order...instead of always in a state of being changed like mine!!!
