My house is an obstacle course of extra furniture and yard sale stuff.
So, naturally, instead of sorting and pricing for a yard sale, I decided to do some rearranging.
It started with this table. I bought it before I bought my house (Crate & Barrel, great condition that I got from a yard sale for $20!) and it’s been sitting under a pile of random stuff in my guest room for a year. While I was purging the guest room yesterday I had an epiphany-it could be perfect in my kitchen!
I thought it would fit under the shelves by the doorway to the kitchen
and it allllmost did. It stuck out less than an inch. I walked past it for a couple of hours and decided that I could live with it.
I took out one of the shelves and called it done. Even though it was too big and even though it wasn’t centered.
I went about my afternoon of cleaning until about 4 when I thought I’d lay down and watch some TV in the cool air conditioning of my bedroom.
While I was laying down (watching DVRed episodes of Grey’s Anatomy-because who doesn’t love to watch the McDreamy’s Dead episode every couple of weeks??) I realized
I had the perfect table for that space in my kitchen!
You might recognize this table that I chalk painted back in April. Confession: I don’t love chalk paint. Maybe I’m not doing it right, but I do not like the finish. I’m sure someone will be knocking on my door any minute to take my DIY Blogger Card but about a week ago I painted it semi-gloss white and moved it into my bedroom.
Now it’s in my kitchen
To finish off my little distraction project I moved the third shelf to over the fridge.
Now that the fun’s over it’s time to get back to cleaning.
