decorating with the camera

decorating with the camera

Sometimes when I’m not sure what I want to go where, I’ll grab my camera and snap a few pics to see what I really like best. And sometimes I make the opposite decision once I realize I don’t even have my coffee table back in place after taking out the Christmas tree. Wondering about the dresser? My mom spotted the sofa table for $25 at the Goodwill a few years ago. It’s an Ethan Allen and weighs a 3/4 of a ton.


I even had to take a break when I carried it down the stairs. Shhhhh, don’t tell my husband, I’m technically not allowed to transfer furniture up and down the stairs anymore. House rules. Luckily, I’m not that technical.

Wondering where the dresser went? About 12 feet away. My neighbors know to expect to see homeless furniture in the foyer as soon as we open the door. I’m still deciding the best place for this one. Our 15-year-old went and grew out of his twin bed (and it also broke) this weekend (the nerve) so he’s taken over the guest room and I’m coming to terms with the fact that I married a tall man and in a matter of years all of our boys will have their feet hanging off twin beds.

It’s never done. It’s always in transition. Instead of seeing it as a pain, I’ve decided to see it as a fun adventure and a great excuse to move furniture!

Because I will jump off a bridge if Shelley Smith says to, I joined Vine and made a life altering 6 second video to go along with this post.  If you are jumping off the bridge and onto Vine too, feel free to find The Nester and watch so your life can be forever changed.  I’m so fresh there I don’t even know how to link yet. –Figured it out (actually, Shelley told me to grab the link from twitter, duh)
