When we decided to rip out the carpet and redo the guest room floor, I also decided to get rid of most of the things in the room. It was a hodge podge of misfits, leftovers from an antique booth, stuff that never sold, things that I just shoved in there to fill the space.
This piece is a good example of the decor. It had a piece of wood on the top and a tablecloth over it and was filled with stored books.
I'd kept it for years because I felt like it had potential, but I'd never done anything about it.
A coat of white paint was a big help. But it still had a huge, gaping hole on the top.
But that was easy to fix with two 18 x 18" marble floor tiles from Home Depot. Then, I sat another book shelf on top of it after giving that a coat of the same paint.
Previously, I had this table in the space, it was okay, but not as efficient for storage. And the mosaic shelf above it was useless. Purely decorative and a waste of precious storage space.
Even in a large studio, every bit of space counts!
(I might use this table in the freshly redone guest room, I don't think it counts as a leftover, or unwanted piece, I still like it)
I'm still not done with my rearranging, but I'm liking the use of space so much more. I've redone a lot of the shelves and have the things I use on a regular basis nearer to my desk chair than before.
Hmmm, yes, I know this doesn't look very tidy, but for me, it is.
While moving things around, I found this mini cabinet I'd made from two old boxes glued together and covered in old paper.
It is going to be ideal to fill with little tidbits for crafting.
When my guest room gets all settled and finished, I'll be sure to show some pictures of that too.
