Some cool MCM Ideas

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. 🙂

Coffee Table Idea

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.

More ideas for lighting

Slight change in my hall light revamp. The Sputnik-esque fixture is what I’ll be aiming for.

It’s more me and my love for mid-century modern.

Still going to reuse materials as much as possible so I’m thinking the antennae would be made of wire coat hangers.

I scored at the Habitat Store!


Habitat Re-Store! Spent $25 for 2 doors – the yellow one and a plain slab door.
