A couple of weeks ago I confessed to you about the time that it almost came to blows over a sofa table at Tuesday Morning. The story had a very happy ending and thankfully it didn’t involve me having to lie on top of the table to protect it from the woman who was trying to get it right out from under me.
As I was driving home with the table safely in the back of my car, I began strategizing about how I was going to shuffle around some other tables in order to make room for the new beauty.
After sliding tables back and forth between my family room and breakfast room I realized that one of them was just going to have to go.
So, the new table landed right where it was meant to be, behind the sofa in the family room.
This then left me with 3 tables and only two spaces. So, after much shuffling and deliberating I decided it was time to part with my black buffet table in the breakfast room.
I was able to sell it (putting the money towards the new table!) and one of the tables in the family room found a new home in it’s spot!
It’s always amazing to me how simply swapping out pieces can completely transform the look of a space. I didn’t realize how much brighter and open it would make it feel in here without that big, black buffet and I love it.
The shelves of this table allow me to display some of my favorite pieces and it definitely feels more kitchen-y.
I pulled this vintage crate out of the attic and it looks so perfect here. Isn’t this such a great piece? I’m pretty sure it’s seen a lot of salmon over the years.
This is hands-down my most favorite kind of decorating.
Shuffling furniture around and creating a whole new look, one that you actually like even better and allows you to show off some of your favorite accessories.
And yes, while this is all the result of buying a ‘new’ piece, what I ended up achieving was a new look in TWO spaces instead of just one.
That’s definitely a win-win in my book!
