on a whim one day when hhh was out of town, i changed around the entire room: the sofa went against a different wall, the fireplace went into the nook where the dining table currently is, and the table went into the middle of the room. it didn't look quite right though, so i moved it all back. at least it was a good workout. this is what it looks like:
there's something about autumn that makes me want to change things up around the apartment. (although i should probably be focusing on work now that school is back in session, and not on random household improvement projects.) so here are the photos of the dining area, because i'll be mixing it up soon.
