So about a year ago we bought some new living room furniture. Started out just planning to buy a new sofa, but the one my wife picked out had a matching oversized chair (you know those “really should be a loveseat but we’ll call it a chair ‘cause it’s cool” chairs). We weren’t really planning on buying it and hadn’t measured for it, but once I laid eyes on it I knew I had to have it. The conversation went something like this – me: “You know, that chair would look really good in the corner by the door.” wife: “You’re nuts. There’s no way it’ll fit with the side table.” me: “Sure it will. We’ll just slide the table down a little.” wife: “There isn’t enough room. It’ll stick out too far, too.” me: “We can put it on an angle. It’ll be awesome.” wife: “You’re crazy.”
Of course she was right…
So the chair came home, the side table left, and I still haven’t lived it down. The worst part about it though, was that I didn’t have a place to put my drink or the remote control. So I thought I’d try to fix that.
This is made with pallet wood scraps (I think pine), and finished with golden oak stain and spray enamel. Stain is blotchy, and it has a case of wide gaposis, but I feel pretty good about it for my first try. Sorry for the lousy pics.
