The Odd But Perfect Table

I think I goofed. 

I had the perfect cabinet for the narrow nook in between the kid's bedrooms. 
This little cabinet used to be in Bill's garage when he was growing up. 
It is a "make-do" piece made out of old exterior siding. 
 I got the itch to paint it. 

I like it painted but it is a little too perfect and pristine right now. 
If I still had kids at home they would shabby it up in no time.

Moving it to Rebekah's room created a hole in the nook which I filled with the spool cabinet. 

It didn't fit very well.
It wasn't there long enough to even get a picture. 
It was too short and too deep.  

This odd little table was in Bill's office. 

It fits perfectly. 

I picked it up for only $45.00 at an antique mall in town. 
We used to have the best antique malls. Most of them have closed.

Bill got the vintage coffee can from his grandparents. 

His dad made the cube with the inlayed stars.

My mother made the needlework picture. 

It works. 
All but one wall in this room are painted. 
We are toying with the idea of a focal wall but I'm having second thoughts. 
I'll let you know what we decide.
The spool cabinet has a new location and I'll get some pictures of that soon. 
Have a great day. 


  1. The table is perfect in that spot, Katie. The needlework caught my eye! You should show that up close.

  2. Nice job. I love the cabinet painted white. Looks perfect there. And I like the sweet little table holding the books. Fun furniture pieces!

  3. Katie, the cabinet does look sweet white, but I loved it in it's rustic state as well. You have a lot of great pieces! the stitching is fabulous also.

  4. I saw a blog and I do not know who blog, that they put wood on the wall and just the end wall. I would move the needlework picture lower on the wall now that you have a smaller table. the table looks so good there.

  5. I like the new look and it's extra special with the treasures made by family members. Love that wood door, too!

  6. Loved it in it's rustic state as well.
