A Simple Switch

Hello everyone!

Have you ever lied in bed at night and thought about things?  Well, of course you have!!!  But, I sometimes think about things that seem unimportant or even unnecessary.  Which leads me to a change I made in my home recently.  It came to me like a light bulb moment.  You would've thought I was solving some world wide crisis or something.  LOL!

It was nothing more than thinking of a change over the bench in my foyer. See?  Told ya.  Nothing earth shattering going on here.   A simple switch was all I had to do.

This dog picture got switched...............


with these plates.


The dog picture was a bit lost on this wall.  I wanted it in a more prominent location.  


And now it is.  I like its scale better for this wall, compared to the plates, since it's on a wider area.  


Who knew that a simple switch could solve my problem.  Now, I wonder what thoughts will float around in my head tonight!  

Thanks for stopping by.

I love the little changes. Yes, I do my best thinking at night. Sometimes I get up right then and make the change. My husband is aware when he hears clanking that I've decided something had to change.

Glad I am not the only one...to have "epiphanies" ...
Love the plates over the bench....

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

The dog picture looks great above the bench! Love the ornate frame it it's in! When I lie in bed and think about decorating it literally keeps me up at night. I can't sleep because I get so excited about ideas, so I don't let myself do it very often. :)

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

LOL! I'm always doing stuff like this in my brain at night, too! I guess creativity never takes a break! The change looks great!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Love the switch! I have so many decorating ideas at night that I started keeping a pad of paper and a pen in my bedside table so I can jot them down when they come to me in the middle of the night. Lol! By the way, your wood floors look so pretty!

Hope you have a great weekend.

Been there, done that. Many times. These days I'm thinking a bit more about gardening and getting this place put together in the first place. But yeah, I've done a good bit of lying awake with some "earth shattering light bulb moment" that I could barely wait for the light of day to change to get up and do it.

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Yep- and it caused me to move some things around my living room. I like the dog picture there- it does work well and shows of nicely. Great idea!

I love the switch Kelly! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who decorates in the dark LOL! Have you ever got out of bed to go and change something around? I have.

NanaDiana said...

Isn't it funny how those simple little changes can make such a big difference? I do that, too...change things around and feel like I have moved to a different home sometimes. lol xo Diana

Penny @ The Comforts of Home said...

The switch is perfect!

Sandy said...

I've even gotten up in the middle of the night to make a tweak here and there if a lightbulb moment keeps me up. I really like the dog picture above the bench. that's a great dog portrait!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I'm smiling as I do the same thing. The picture is just fabulous in its new location.

Have a lovely weekend!
