Sometimes it takes living in your home for a little while before you really get a sense of how the furniture should be arranged. This was the case for Nancy, who eventually decided she needed to move her long dining table into the main living room of her house.
By taking this long dining table out of the dining room and bringing it into the living room, Nancy has made it the focal point of her home. This allows the table to be used for entertaining and for the kids' craft area.
Nancy also brought the bench from another part of the home to the table. The bench can be used at the table or pulled away and used in the living area while entertaining.
This is a great example of how rearranging furniture can completely change how you use the rooms of your home.
