Why is it that whenever I start moving furniture around in the house I always end up with an extra piece or two? We moved my youngest grandson into his big brother's room last week, in order to make more room for the crib we had to move a side table (big brother was using as a night stand) out.
Of course, when we moved the crib out of my daughter's room we were able to spread her things out a bit which led to moving a small hutch out of her room.
I decided to move the small hutch into my craft studio for additional storage and to use as a printer table, which involved moving out the existing printer stand from my craft room.
The printer stand from my craft room is larger than the bed side table I was using in the master bedroom, and I could use more storage in there, so I decided to move the original bed side table from the master to the front porch which involved moving the little patio table I was using on the porch to the back patio.
Whew! After all that furniture swapping I am completely happy with where everything ended except I am still left with the original night stand table from my grandson's room (that started all this moving in the first place) without a home.
One of the changes I ended up with was this pretty sitting area on the back patio. This is the original front porch side table. I moved it to a shady corner of the back patio and painted it this pretty bahama blue. I just gave it a good scrubbing and a coat of primer, then I mixed regular craft paint with the primer and a little grout until I got the color I wanted and gave it a couple of coats of paint. I pulled this old wicker chair from another area and made a bright new pillow for it using outdoor fabric that I found at Joann's.
Of course I left myself with an empty spot where I moved the wicker chair from but I have a concrete bench in my front perennial bed that will fit perfectly.
But then that will leave a hole where I moved the concrete bench from...
