Soon after getting my garage full of furniture, I dug out my $5 bookcase, cleaned it up and put it and the lamp in our living room. I then moved a bunch of our fiction books to the living room.
Obviously, I need to rearrange our gallery wall now, but I probably won't do that until I'm ready to repaint and finish filling that wall with frames. I'll also eventually get an extension cord for the lamp. There's actually a plug on the other side of the bookcase, but I wanted the lamp plugged into our half-hot outlet so we can turn it on/off with the light switch. Until then, the cord is stretched as far as it'll go to reach that outlet.
