Furniture Changes

Hello everyone!

Well, I promised to show you what happened to the chest in my foyer and the coffee table in the family room, so here it goes..............

The coffee table got repainted in a grey.  The blue always seemed to stand out too much, so grey was a logical change.


I used a grey color from Benjamin Moore, called Chelsea Grey.  I already had this paint on hand.  


I can't tell you how much happier everyone is (including me actually) that this coffee table is back in position.  It really just fits this space better and the way we use this room.


I moved the chest in here, too, where the chair used to be.  Then the chair was placed by the fireplace.


So, everything found a new home.  The grey wooden chair that was in here moved to the dining room.  I'll show that to you in another post. Whew!  That was a lot of furniture moving.  

I have been nursing a bad hip all week.  It started hurting last week and then started feeling better last weekend.  Of course, that's when I started making all of these changes.  Then, my hip got VERY mad at me and started giving me muscle spasms.  It was awful!  So I've been taking it easy all week so that it would feel good enough to go to the Country Living Fair tomorrow.  So far, I think the inflammation has gone down enough to allow me to go.  Fingers crossed that it stays that way!  

I will take my camera so I can share my trip with you.

Thanks for stopping by.

The coffee table looks so pretty in grey! I love when I already have paint on hand and can just whip it out for a project. Hope your hip keeps getting better and better. Have fun at the fair!

Love the coffee table. Hope you are feeling better - try applying some Arnica gel/cream. You can buy it in health food stores or drug stores. It has really helped me when I have back or neck problems and my friend's doctor had suggested it when she had knee surgery.

Everything looks great.

I wish I had the space for a coffee table like yours. I love the square look.

Take care of that hip and don't overdo it!

It's nice that all your furniture is so versatile. Chelsea grey is gorgeous and is the perfect color for that room.

Hi Kelly,
I love love that coffee table so glad you moved it back into the room. It looks so great. Have fun at the Country Living Fair. I hear the one by you is so great. Enjoy and hope your hip feel ok for all the walking you will do. I just put up a post on the sale of my sectional. I so wish you lived closer it would look so sweet with your coffee table.

looks good. i love the new color. i have one more change that you could make is to put the wicker trunks where you have the chest right now. have you ever put anything on the wall and not in front of the stairs? if you move the chest back there some time i would love to see you try it there but for now rest and i hope you can go to the fair tomorrow so i can see the pic.

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

It looks great Kelly! I can see why you guys enjoy this table... I've struggled with hip pain this week too. Sciatica is what I think I have. Anyways, I hope you're feeling better and have a great time at the fair. Looking forward to seeing all the goodies!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Love the new homes Kelly...hope your hip gets better so you can go to the CL Fair...looking forward to pics...will miss you guys this year!!!

Doreen@househoneys said...

I can understand why you and your family would like the table where it is. It's quite substantial and very practical. I have always found I most enjoy tables that are like that. Something where you can put food on when company comes is great, and it does work with your space nicely.

Question Kelly...have you always had captcha? I don't remember seeing it until recently, and as I'm looking at one of the words I am not sure I can read it.

(Update: I had to change it twice but made it.). :)

Lady Pamela said...

Everything looks so wonderful. You have such talent. Send a little my way lol.
I hope you get to go to Country Living. It would be a shame to miss it.
*Smiles*

Doreen@househoneys said...

Kelly, the word verification is still there. This time it was a bit easier to read as it was just numbers, but it's definitely there. Maybe you can ask some of your other readers if they see it?

Debra@Common Ground said...

love love this big coffee table, it looks wonderful and perfect gray on top!

Elizabeth BlueClearSky said...

Your room always looks great but I do like the large coffee table as they are especially handy with a family.
