i got sucked into that deep dark swedish wormhole again. oh, you of the multi-floored furniture displays. you of the friendly flags + the meatballs + the dandelions from outer space. you....you!
this time i left not lacking a coffee table for the sunroom. ahh, the sunroom. its been a slow progression since move-in day last july [that's july 2009, people] but we're finally getting there. the hubs spotted this member of the lack crew and upon further inspection we decided it could make a pretty dandy addition to the house.
+ its cheap [and therefore we won't cry if the kiddo goes to town on it someday, a la this]
+ it has low, clean lines
+ it has a useful shelf for storing books or some slim baskets with small toys
+ it could easily migrate and become a bench with a cushion or some other functional piece in the house
so without further ado....here shines the sunroom with her new furniture arrangement. the only problem: i'm starting to really like her now + its going to be hard to acquiese ownership of her to the baby once he turns into a living terror and we need to cage him in there on a semi-permanent basis to keep him from destroying the rest of our home. because that is what babies do, isn't it??
i would still like to replace the stock white square legs with chrome or nickel peg legs. for a little extra panache.
so as i said, progress. some things old, some things new, some things borrowed [that branch! from nature! HELLO!], some things....with a view.
