OK, maybe not my first piece of grown up furniture, but it was delivered. And the packaging taken away. And after my love affair with Ikea and all things Expedit, it's pretty amazing to not have to put together every item in my house:)
Here is the space before.
We hung a giant triptych of a sailboat right away when we moved in, then did nothing except put a way-too-low ottoman beneath it.
Wait one year.
Stalk the console table online, waiting for it to go on sale.
Pass it up 3 times when it's only on sale by 20-25%.
Finally decide after an entire year has passed that 25% off is as good as it's going to get and hit the "purchase" button.
Wait 2 months for delivery...
In the meantime, my mom reorganized her living room and sent some of her furniture to our storage room/basement to
live hang out a while.
We decided to re-appropriate a nice black console table (with permission!) and brought it into the living room to hang out.
Then the "real" table arrived.
Now I had a problem since two console tables, one black the other wood were not happy next to each other, so I moved the black console to the other side of the opening and now all is happy.
Except that I still have to figure out this whole table-scaping business.
Have you been up to any furniture shuffling around your house?
