I took FOREVER for him to get home that day. Then we rushed over everything was still there Yay! I showed him the coffee table first:
This was the herringbone travertine tabletop that had me at hello...
If you remember I had been on the hunt for the perfect ottoman, however the times of the table and the substantialness of it, it is 44 inches only 4 inches less then our dinning room table when the leaves are not in it.
I hate the color of the wood it is so seventies. I will strip and sand and then have Mike stain it black if you had not noticed the pictures of it at home on our rug already he agreed that it was wonderful and we should take it home it was $30 which it a pretty good price considering it is so solid. I love the line under the table and how it mimics the line of our dinning room table, which it will soon match even more.
Then I brought him over to the dresser, he was unsure at first for a few reasons, he did not like the art deco hardware:
Which I think is fantastic, sure maybe some primer and paint if they were silver or black he might be more inclined to like them.
I still think that I will use these for the upcoming desk project maybe I can get some copper spray paint or have them plated to match the penny top. I always wanted that desk to have three drawers. Anyway with out any further delay the pieces de resistance:
I love the grain and while origionally I thought I would want to strip, sand and stain this black as well I love how it brings out the darker tones in the floor. Mike wants hardware that will match the entertainment center. So we will be on the look out. The left double doors have his shoes the right mine.
We just took the shoe dividers out of the generic white shoe holders that we had and put them in. Unfortunately right now they are a little to big to fit the way we want eventually we will cut them down and then they will fit lengthwise.
