The table arrived early in the morning and I was surprised to see it all put together when I woke up. Kudos to the hubs, right?
I love it's shape and instead of it being totally black there's "distressed" areas of gold on the edges...love that!
It's so perfect in that small area, the perfect size, not too big and not too small. I tend to err on the side of minimalism rather than have so much stuff that it screams "cluttered".
So here we are my friends, my wonderful table:
And from the other side:
Here's a closer look at the table, I really love the lines of it:
The "P" monogram frame was made by Kristin @ Kristin's Creations, she is so talented and makes some really beautiful things, check her site out when you get a chance.
Here's a tighter shot for y'all:
The vase is temporary, the colors definitely match but the bamboo design doesn't really go with my theme and/or style, but for now it'll do until I find (or make) another.
So what do y'all think of the mirror hanging above the table? You can read about that makeover here. I think it's the perfect size for the space:
This a shot of the table area from the middle of our living room, I like that it doesn't "dominate" that space like the (horrible) piece of furniture that was there before.
But............I still need to do something on that other blank wall to the left of the door. Nothing can really sit there (on the floor) because there's only about an 8 inch clearance to work with, well, other than a skinny floor vase or the like, but definitely not a bench or other piece of furniture. But that wall definitely needs something. I have a few ideas brewing and I am getting some good ideas from Pinterest but I'm all ears if you have any suggestions.
Here's a shot head on, front and center:
Table love, I'm feeling it.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing how I've started the foyer makeover...sorry for flooding you with pictures, but I'm just in love with this little area now, I so used to hate my foyer.
Stay tuned...part 3 of the foyer makeover will be coming up soon. Now I'm headed back up to the bonus room to break more fingernails, pull more muscles, take on a few bruises while freezing my patootie off. In case you're wondering what I'm talking about...you can read about it here.
Have a great day!
