I hate my living room.

As seen in this post  I have a hate/hate relationship with my living room.

It's an odd shape. It's furnished in cast offs and hand me downs. It's FULL of furniture...and it's where we spend the most part of our time as a family. The boy plays there. We eat in there (I know..I know. but the Mr. likes watching TV...) we do everything pretty much in there except cook and sleep...and sometimes one of us does sleep. It KILLS me that a room we use so much is a room I hate. The boys don't feel this way, just me by the way. Give them a TV, a remote and a comfy sofa.

I spent a good part of today re arranging the furniture. I swear, it's like re arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. I hate it just as much now as I did two hours ago. The only difference is that the carpet is now clean.

I have to go back and see what I can do with it.

wish me luck

I wonder if you might consider replacing the couch, armchairs, and ottomans with a sectional with a chaise end? It might give you enough comfy seating but also reduce the number of oversized pieces in that oddly shaped room. I sat in this one while on vacation last week and it was wonderful...

that is a great sofa. We had a sectional for a while, and I did love it..... I want to replace the sofa and chairs..but the boy just got braces and phase one is going to be 3800 bucks....and there is a phase two I have to live with this for a while.
