Yesterday, in keeping with the whole "I'm in the Fourth of July spirit" mood, I did a quick entry table makeover. I went hunting for some things around the house to help my entryway look a little more festive for this month's holiday. I had a goal of not spending a penny to decorate and to just reuse random items I already had.
Furniture with function is always an easy decision. Let's be honest, when it comes to making a purchase and your stuck between an ottoman for $59.99 and an ottoman that has storage inside for $69.99 what are you going to pick? The one with storage inside right? The goal of a home furnishing designer (at least a good one) is create not only something beautiful but furniture that will serve multiple purposes. For instance the conception of this particular console table is not only to sit behind a couch with lamps on top of it looking pretty but also to provide storage.
Do you ever have those mornings where you know you have the perfect accent piece to your wardrobe, but can’t find it? Too many times I had stood in my closet rifling through my jewelry drawer asking myself, “Where are those earrings …. that necklace … that brooch!?” I decided to do something about it.
