Oops I did it again. Yes, I moved. This is my 6th move in 4 years. I’ve slowly pared down my belongings although from the photos it doesn’t appear so.
I decided with this move to sell one huge reminder of my ex: our bed. It is a large four poster wood bed and I bought the small full size iron bed on Craigslist. Just waiting for a new mattress to be delivered. Now when I go to bed at night, there will be no visual reminders of the past.
When I do buy furniture I’ve always tried to find pieces which can be used in a multitude of ways. So my formal living room end tables are now night stands in my room. The small tables with drawers I bought at Hobby Lobby for my bedroom are now in the living area. The tall, narrow drawer chest has been moved from my bedroom to the kitchen. And the small armoire which went with my four posset bed is now in the guest room.
I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by the boxes but reminding myself to be grateful to have such a problem. The heat and humidity aren’t helping the unpacking process but hard work and sweat never hurt anyone.
As much as I’d like a cool shower and a good book, I’m heading to the garage and another box.

I move my furniture around the same way. I have a pair of large end tables that a friend gave me. Ed has one as his night stand and the matching one is in the den as a center table between two chairs. My night stand is an antique gate leg table that used to be in the den. There isn’t as much space on my side of the bed and the smaller table made more sense.

Congrats on the move and new bed. I, also am going to purchase a new bed, maybe even a bedroom set and am in process of packing to move.
I found it on Craigslist which is where I found my dining set and coffee table.
