Here is part one of the weekend and this was a fun part of it. Other than growing things, I love and enjoy decorating and finding stuff. I might not be the greatest at it but I sure do enjoy it!
Anyway, the other day at lunch, I stopped into Marshall's Home Goods and found this great little end table. It was the perfect pale yellow color to match the other furniture in the guest room. It has a drawer, which is always useful, and a little shelf on the bottom. It also has a distressed look which fits nicely.
This is what the spot looked like before. We already had this round one with a tablecloth that we were using as an end table. It worked for the lamp and an alarm clock which was OK, but we always kept an eye out for something else.
We also have, off the master bedroom, this little sitting area. It's still a work in progress. These two chairs were just extras we've had from the time we first closed on the house (needed something inexpensive to sit on when there was no other furniture at the time, ha). They've been all over the house during the last year but they finally ended up here. The looked lonely so we needed something else for that spot, specifically, a table and a lamp.
I moved the table from the guest room into here and put it between the two lonely chairs. I also moved the lamp in here because we needed some light in this area. Got a new lampshade for it, but I just saw one online last night that is blue and white, I might just return this and get that one. Eventually, we want comfy chairs, maybe with ottomans, in this spot so we can sit and read but for now, this will work.
Here is where I put the new yellow end table next to the guest room bed. I also brought this vintage lamp that we had in town (it's a family heirloom) that I had never thought about bringing before. But by moving the other lamp into the sitting area, we needed one here and this just seemed like the right spot for it. The colors and flowers blend in perfectly. Now what to put on the shelf and what to put in the drawer? Decisions decisions...
So a small $30 purchase (the yellow end table), allowed me to move several things around and I really was able to finish, or at least get to a finished 'look', two different rooms. Have you ever found one thing that let you completely redo several other things? I love it when that happens.
