I finally finished the black table that I posted about here. When I told you about it, many of you thought I should take the plunge and go with a bold color and I agreed. Well, I tried it and it didn't work. Let me re-phrase that - my guys didn't like it.
Do you see my helper?They thought going with a green was too random. Maybe a different green would have worked better, but I decided to go with my original plan and paint the table black.
Here it is in its new spot under the window. I really like the new layout of our living room, by the way. I think even my husband would agree that this is the most content I have ever been in this room. And I'm sure his fingers are crossed that it stays this way. The key was getting rid of the big armoire and mounting the TV above the mantle. I fought it for years, but when it came down to it - with limited space and many doors, windows, and stairs to contend with - this was the way to go. You may have also noticed that the striped curtains are gone. They sold in the yard sale last weekend and have since been replaced with simple linen curtains from Ikea. Much better.
Thanks for stopping by today. I don't say it often enough, but thank you for making this one of your regular stops. With the millions of blogs out there to choose from, I am very grateful that you choose to hang out here.
