Behind the couch table.
Have you ever heard of that? Thanks to Pinterest, I have. And I wanted one so that I can get a “display” table and some much needed extra space/storage for books. It looks so pretty and it is a great alternative to those without a lot of floor space to have a coffee table in the middle of the sofa set.
Since then I have pestered Kei to draw a “plan” for the said table. Sure this will not be a DIY-since we dont have the woodworking skills and tools, but I wanted to get a close to accurate shop drawing with measurements so that it would be easier for the one making the table. Less margin for error.
Also wanted the table to have electrical outlets on both ends so we can charge phones, place a lamp…etc.
Once we have the drawing it is off to the furniture shop. It took about three weeks before it arrived, right before Christmas. It was huge.
Then the holidays came and we got busy and forgot about “decorating” the table, until now. We sorted out our books, bought some basic bookends and placed them on the table. We also moved our ceramic bunnies from the dining table to this ‘behind the couch’ table. They now guard our books. Freeing up much needed space in the dining table.
Next would be looking for lamps to be the accent piece. Just last weekend, we found it.
Looking good on and off! So after a long while, the living room is looking a bit more homey/cozy.
We can still fit some decorative items in! -a few picture frames on the table would be good & maybe something huge for the wall would be nice in the future.
Any suggestions for wall decor? That is all about our small home improvement for now. Till the next.
