I’m going to be taking the stuff down over an extended Memorial Day weekend.
I had gotten this cedar stump last summer and had wrapped sisal rope around it. It was going to be a scratching post for the kitties.
They don’t use it other than to jump onto it and then onto another piece of furniture.
I will be sanding the top and staining it soon to make into a side table. I don’t know if I’ll add legs to it or not it is a pretty good height and fits my laptop. Not much else but it could be a cool piece of furniture. 🙂
This should be pretty easy…sand/plane the top smooth, stain and seal.
I have a couple Ikea Expedit units like the second pic and was going to line the entire wall with it. Then I saw the MCM look with the pipe fittings.
I think I can use my Expedits and have them supported on metal pipes and have them under my wide screen and then have pipe shelving around it. This way, I can build it as I go.
I think this will give a more modern twist to the classic Mid-Century Modern look.
I’ll try to use reclaimed materials as much as I can too.
So I bought a tower fan for the master bedroom in preparation for the chandelier.
Damn thing isn’t as cool as the ceiling fan.
So, *sigh* I’m going to take the ceiling fan down in the office and hang the new fixture there. The tower will work in that room since I don’t sleep in there.
I’ll probably move that fan into the spare since the spare one is a bit noisy.
Midcentury Modern love
I was in central Austin today and saw some really cool stuff.
The table was cool because it was different and if I can find the wood, I can totally make one (and save hundreds).
The couch is so fun – I totally want to find some old couch or sectional with the right shape & legs and then get it reupholstered.
I’ll be keeping my eyes open for cool chairs too. 🙂
Future master bedroom light –
$30 and it is heavy brass. I’m going to spray paint it black, add some sparkly bling and it’ll be awesome.
Yeah I’m gonna get rid of my ceiling fan and going with a tower fan instead.
I love this idea of a Mondrian inspired wall. I would totally love to do something like this.
I think this is what started my whole stenciling idea. I still want to do something like this…maybe once I take down the popcorn in the living room I can make this happen.
I KNOW I’ll need to retouch the paint once the plaster comes off so I’ll wait until after that’s done to see if there is a wall I can kick up several notches by doing this. 🙂
Coffee Table Ideas
My current coffee table is huge – 40” x 40”. I want something a little smaller and like the free form looking ones here.
I love the hairpin legs too. It gives the MCM look I love. Maybe I can find a unique piece for the top to do this.
I wouldn’t get rid of my current table. I’d probably sand it and use a marine varnish so I could use it outdoors once I get my outdoor space created.
I wonder if I could make something like that?
Yep and both of mine own me.
