AWKWARD TABLE TURNED COZY CORNER
Lately, I’ve been on this ‘fixer-upper’ deal where I’m trying to make something out of nothing. I’m not sure if it’s because Christmas is literally right around the corner and I want to make our apartment feel more like a home, or because I feel like after moving to a bigger place everything feels empty because we don’t have enough furniture to fill it out. Either way, it’s been DIY central at the house of M&W.
My latest project was this side table.
I’ve been having it ever since I moved out of the rents’ house (they let me take it with me) and I just haven’t found a good use for it. 1) It’s not my style. Too traditional. I’m more contemporary. 2) It’s awkwardly tall. It’s too tall to be a side table, too small to be a coffee table, an entry table maybe? But, I want something more grandeur for that. (I just love that word… ‘grandeur’. So chic! *as I raise my pinky*)
So, I grabbed some chalky paint because everybody has been talking about it. I figured it must be good, and I loved the color. Turquoise, yes please!
A couple coats later, and ba-bam! Turquoise heaven!
I added some holiday ornaments because I mean, duh! Who doesn’t love the feel of Christmas?! I just love the warmth of these flowers too! Adding cranberries to the vase just gave it the holiday pizazzle that I wanted. Ugh, so cozy.
And, I made this super easy banner to adorn the wall because it looked pretty bare. #newapartmentprobz
I think this is my new favorite corner in our home. It just gives me Christmas lifeeee!
What have you done around the house to amp up the Christmas spirit?
Sidenote: I apologize for the dim lighting in these pics! The winter sun is not the best for taking photos, especially with a point-and-shoot. If you have any tips for using a PAS and making your photos have SLR quality, let me knowwww! If that’s even possible… xo Chels
