Ottoman Coffee Table

Over the past few weeks, I have been making use of a Tae Bo workout video in our living room.  And every day as I struggled to move the coffee table we received as a wedding gift, I have gained motivation to find something new to take it’s place.  Being a piece from Target, it isn’t too surprising that the legs separate from the lower shelf slightly every time I moved it.  But it is surprising how heavy the piece is.  It also seemed a little on the small side with the hand-me-down couches, not to mention it is really tall for a coffee table!

I used an RSS feed to search for ottomans on Craigslist daily.  It seemed like a good idea to go ahead and combine the coffee table and Bradley’s love of putting his feet up into one piece.  I finally found a large square chocolate ottoman and we brought it home for a measly $45.

I love the scale of the new ottoman in the room, and I love how easy it is to move!  It works great for us, since we weren’t using all the drawer space in our coffee/end tables anyway, and I didn’t like to keep much on the coffee table anyway.  The green tray is living it up on the new ottoman, so I still have a little space to keep the remotes and my bird book out.

On a side note, you may notice that I moved the paper floor lamp to the corner behind the peace lily.  That is because I added the floor lamp from our master bedroom to this room.  I will share what I did in the master bedroom corner to not only still have light, but also add a little bling really soon.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
