1. First we had to move the old furniture. Where did we move it? The two pieces of furniture that left our living room was our southwestern patterned sofa sleeper and our little gold recliner. We moved these two pieces of furniture up into our spare bedroom. We did this for several reasons: (1) if guests stay they can have their own room to sleep in, (2) so add extra sitting upstairs so that if one of us is on the computer doing work then the other can sit in the room also working on something else, and (3) when we host homegroup and split into lifegroups we have a bunch of seating in our spare bedroom for a lifegroup to go. So we moved the old furniture up to the spare bedroom. Once the sofa sleeper and recliner was in the spare bedroom we were able to hang things on the wall. I'd say that our spare bedroom is very cluttered and decorated in a cluttered way. But I like it :)
2. The new furniture came in! Once it did we had to recentered the canvas and sconces.
