After no call from Home Depot by early afternoon MC called them. Now, they tell us "maybe" it will come in, next week, but they can't be sure when!
MC CANCELLED THE ORDER!
What direction to go? Start looking for another flooring product? What?
All week, I have been staring at this table with gold paint fogging up the mirror tile squares. I kept thinking, (to myself), this doesn't look too bad! In fact I rather like the mirrors with the black frame and the gold base and legs. I like it a lot! Maybe we shouldn't have ordered the flooring material? Didn't dare say a word to MC..... So when MC cancelled the order I really wasn't all that upset! In fact, I was rather happy!
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MIRRORS CHIPPING IN THE CORNERS? the reason for this entire exercise!
Remember those "star" studs that are put in sections of mirrors? We used them with the mirror tiles in our last home (I have looked, but can't find a picture) They looked great. We're not sure how they would work on a table top, but they would cover, and hopefully, stop the chipping in the corners where the mirrors meet.
MC is all for looking into this...it's another trip to Lowes! Not Home Depot!
If we have time, we will look tomorrow. Sunday is a big day here. We're having a "Get Together" (I hate the word "MEETING") of all the Committee Heads and Volunteers that are part of the Holiday Tour Of Homes we are heading up. This is one reason why I was hoping the table would be finished by Sunday.
AS A REVIEW
THE SAGA OF THE COCKTAIL TABLE
Next we "tested" different materials to cover the plywood top
Vinyl Tiles....no go
mirror tile squares....yes!
Mirror tiles begin to "crack" in corners.
MC PREPARES TO TRANSFORM TABLE TO "INSPIRATION" PIECE
AFTER FOUR CANS OF GOLD PAINT....NOTICE DIFFERENT COLORS AND BRANDS!
......NOT PLANNED....this was what the store had when MC went back, after running out.....
ALL TRIPS TO ......LOWES.....many miles with the price of gas going up by the minute!
BUT....THIS IS THE WHOLE FUN PART FOR MC
GOLD LEGS AND BASE....LOOKING GOOD!
MC CLEANED OFF ALL THE GOLD PAINT THAT HAS BEEN ON THE TILES
Took most of the afternoon
ACCESSORIZE TOMORROW......THIS WAS "STAGED" FOR A QUICK PHOTO SHOT
This is where we are....Today! Who knows what tomorrow will bring?.....maybe, we will look into those "star studs" .....never know????
ps....the furniture has changing constantly.... I have noticed while looking at these pictures that chairs, tables, lamps, rugs, etc. are different places in almost each shot! Makes us feel as if we live in a NEW home every day!!!
THIS MORNING I HAVE TWEAKED THE ROOMS! IT'S THE SAME OLD STORY.....ONE THING LEADS TO ANOTHER
HERE IS THE SPACE! WE ARE READY FOR THAT GET TOGETHER.....
