rearranging the great room…

Sometimes it feels good to just start pulling the cute clutter out of a room and start over.  Leaving the important bones and only putting back your favorite décor pieces!

You can see a few of the book bundles from my craft project that I recently shared with you.

My sweet friend Michelle brought me a few that she had made after seeing my post.

Mixing them together has brought some cute character to the great room mantle.

Thanks for the inspiration! I need to freshen the room but I hardly know where to start and your right, sometimes it pays to simply pull everything out and start over.

Tracie,
I love your book bundles. I love to take things out of a room and then put change things up with only bringing back in things you love. Your room looks great.
