it has been so busy around here and I’ve been working on all kinds of miscellaneous things that would no doubt bore you to death…
except for this project!
I’ve decided to change up the furniture in my mom’s LL to give things a fresh new look!
Beginning with a switch-a-roo of the rattan set I gave her as we renovated the house.
The sofa, settee, cocktail table, and side table just went to storage—until further notice, and they may be going up for sale. The sofa table went there a while ago and the fern chest has gone to the antique mall for sale.
Here’s the new plan—
The table in the “corner” (with the lamp) came from our late Great Aunties. Mom has these vivid childhood memories of it always being paired with a chair in a very large dressing closet—so she won’t part with it–no matter what!
*I think I may have given her an anxiety attack with this particular project because,
I decided to
CUT THE LEGS DOWN
to make it the new coffee table!
A simple project! 15-20 minutes et, voilà!
I determined a height for the “new” table and found the most natural spot in the turned legs to make my cut! What could be easier?!
I think it looks very natural and LUV IT! And thankfully–so does mom!
You can also see Grandpa’s rockers never sold so we’re keeping them! (not upset about that at all!) I brought the one rocker I was keeping all along and will do some additional work on it, plus, I pulled my caned sofa from storage and am changing out the lighting!
The cut-off legs will eventually be re-purposed into another project and many more changes to this space are afoot—stay tuned!
Yes! Everything is in CHA-A-A-OS! (…sigh…)
