Our living room has been empty for awhile
(the sectional moved to the finished basement).
But it is coming together since I brought in
lots of comfy Belgian linen slipcovered lovely.
Everybody loves that swivel-tastic Copenhagen chair.
The sofa is an 8-footer, and the coffee table
is probably temporary…I found it in the garbage!
It is an old solid oak children’s art table
given a zinc paint treatment.
It will be upgraded eventually, but we
love the idea that it has been touched by so many
creative little hands and came out of a church.
You may remember the piece has a twin, and I was
using them as benches in the dining room.
Yes, two free tables/benches!
That small abstract is not staying there!
I threw it on the wall because there was a nail.
Whatev! It’s not even straight!
So right now we have a dough bowl and some
French prayer chairs along this wall, but who
knows what we’ll do…maybe a huge mirror
or giant framed photograph above it.
A closer look at the finish I put on the table.
Big spender that I am,
paid $1 for this rolling stool which I turned
into a side table. I didn’t even replace the makeshift
plywood top–just slapped on some grey paint.
Again, it’s prob temporary but maybe not.
In its current state, totally boring but this is the
beginning…it will evolve and become magical.
Will the walls be paneled?
An interesting rug?
I’m patient with such things.
The room gets fabulous light,
and I’m sending you some
right where you are.
