A New, Old Table
I couldn't stand it anymore. I had to leave the mountain and go shopping--and not for food. I found a darling dresser that would be cute in Annabel's room. However, it was $250. I decided that I didn't love it that much.
And then I saw this low chest. $75. I paid for it and I was out the door.
Because the football games were on, Mr. Gollum said he would bring it into the foyer and I could tinker with the placement later. I did rather like it here--and thought about buying black paint and somehow restoring the lovely knobs. I love the storage, too.
Yes, it looked nice from this angle, too.
But then I remembered the bath in the upstairs guest room. It's one of those totally ignored spaces--haven't gotten around to doing more than setting out towels and soap.
And I am determined to make it lovely before Christmas!
There's a nice long wall in that bathroom. The Gold Curio is there now--but can't stay, of course. Never meant for it to stay. I could put the white chest here. Just huffing and puffing, no painting.
However, I am not sure it I want another boxy shape in here. (That said, the taller curio didn't do anything for this space). But there's no way to decide that without AUDITIONING the table.
With a lamp, or lamps, and a map of Venice (in sections) over it, or some sort of grouping, hmmm, it might be lovely.
