First off thank you ladies for your wonderful ideas on how to cope with this table. I really like the idea of burlap or dropcloth attached with velcro around the bottom it sounds so simple and easy.
I also discovered that even though I can not lift the enormous piece of glass, I can slip a piece of paper in there . And came up with an idea. I was inspired by a side table I saw at Home Goods. It really suits my style and I would like to incorporate this idea onto the top of these black slabs.
The inspiration table is collaged with vintage- looking maps.
Love, love. love this idea.
This is what I want to do to my table legs!
Not only are those dining chairs and table getting a makeover while I am in Florida. I'm finally getting started on that God- aweful hutch that is attached to the wall.
I tried to get that negotiated out of the deal when we purchased. I hate it that much. It is just not my style one bit. It's black laminate 80's comtemporary. I like vintage. This is not it. I like trunks from the turn of the century. I like white cottage turned legs. I like soft pastels and stripes. I like old maps. Vintage milk glass. Green depression ware. Hand crocheted lace tablecloths.
This thing just dangles from the wall like a big spaceship.
Removing it is not going to happen any time soon. We just are not here enough to accomplish that. And as I have stated before the hubbo is not handy.
So I am out to CBH (CottageBeachHouse) this puppy as best I can. My ideas are
- Give it some legs so it's not just hanging
- Paint it a much lighter color, off white
- Change all the knobs to a nickel finish
- Dress it up with some wood appliques
- If anyone has a great idea for this one help me out will ya? I will be diving in with the primer real soon!
