I've also been doing a bit of re-decorating, you know, shifting stuff around, de-cluttering, creating room and just generally giving things a refresh.
It started with the Coffee Table Problem.
This is what our sitting room looked like last year:
|Giant Barrymore loveseat paired with a glass coffee table.|
You can see there wasn't much room for people walking around the furniture comfortably, never mind the fact that the dog is giant and fluffy and takes up so much space in this room anytime we are in it.
|No room to walk around, especially when you add in a giant fluffy dog.|
The glass coffee table looked even worse when combined with the antique sofa. I started to have serious hatred for it. We had moved the loveseat downstairs to our family room (where it looks much better) and I became obsessed with moving the glass coffee table downstairs as well.
But what to replace it with? I don't know if you've tried to purchase a coffee table lately but if you have you will understand how complicated it can be. First of all there are thousands of choices but many are too large, or too cheap looking, or too expensive, or are constructed of the wrong woods, or are made of things not wood (terrible composites).
I looked at approximately 6000 coffee tables and this is what I ended up purchasing:

How have you been? What are you up to? Any decorating going on in your house? Spring cleaning? Taxes?
Whatever you've been up to I hope it's going as well as it possibly can.
