TROUBLE IS BREWING .....
There is possibly a "problem" with the mirror tiles on the cocktail table. I know, a lot of you warned me there might be, and I am seeing that this could be becoming a reality!
We have a chip here and a chip there, and it won't be long before it's going to get to me.
I wasn't looking for a solution, not yet....and then this morning I saw two different rooms in this month's Veranda. They caught my eye! And....I began to see something, maybe an "Epiphany" developing.
Our table has great bones! MC did a great job. We had a hard time deciding on a "top" and ended up using 12" square mirror tiles, the same as the ones on the fireplace wall and surround. They have been OK. Yes, just, OK. For some unknown reason all our guests are afraid of it!!!! I have to reassure them over and over that they can put their glass on it, they can touch it, and yes, even put there feet on it!!! But it doesn't work! All our guests are intimidated by it!
Now these little chips are appearing in the corners where the tiles meet. Could be a "pressure" thing or something? I'm not an engineer! Maybe we should rethink this ??
Getting back to this morning......
MY EYES FLIPPED AT THIS.......
Funny, Patti, you mentioned months ago to paint it gold. It wasn't on the black rug it's on now and I thought gold would look weak! .....BUT I SURE DO LIKE THIS! And...the table is now on a black rug!!! The Gold would POP!
Not sure what the top of this table is, but it looks like glass, which we can't do.
Then I flipped a few pages and saw this
Is that wood planks on the top?
This afternoon MC and I went to his favorite place in the world!!! Lowes! If I can work a trip to Lowes into an Epiphany, I know he will at least "consider" it!!!
We looked at wood flooring, found one we loved, but the strips in the box have all different lengths..." Well, .it is-- flooring!" We just need four foot strips. It doesn't come that way. Nix that idea, walked over to a different aisle!! Fell across a tongue and groove bead board unfinished product. Now we were getting somewhere.....MC could paint this a shinny black. ??????
So....this is the beginning of the "Story". What will the ending be?......"Happily ever after" or "Never Mind"!
I wish to say "Hello" to all of Pam's readers who have stopped in today. Pam writes a great blog, Simple Details.
On her blog this morning she gave me a Huge "Shout Out" and posted a picture of our Foyer. I can't tell you how many have "visited" Patty's Epiphanies today because of this.....Just Amazing!!!
Pam thanks so, so much.....
