Small Side Table

Hello everyone!

We use the side table next to our sofa quite a bit.  So, it's important for it to be the right height and be large enough for a lamp and a drink. 

I had a woven hamper with a lid beside it recently, but it was a little low and the texture didn't make it ideal to set a drink on.

So, when I saw this little table, I thought it would be better suited in it's place.



It was already in the perfect light shade of grey and slightly distressed.


I love its unique shape.  It is smaller on top with legs that spread out.


Do you want to know why it is shaped like that?  Well, it was originally made to be a stool! The home interiors store that I bought it from said a lot of people liked them as tables instead.  


Well, that is what I planned to do with it anyway.  Glad I wasn't the only one!  

The woven hamper still makes a nice side table, but I relocated it beside this chair instead.


I'm loving this little side table now.  It's the perfect height and color and best of all it's a better fit than what was there.



 Now we can access our throws better that are stored in the hamper!

Thanks for stopping by.

Your table is really cute and I can see why it would work better than the beautiful wicker basket. Love them both.

great find and it was even the right color. I'm betting it will get a makeover sometime soon though when a little thought pops in your head and there are no other victims to re-do.

I like both the woven hamper and the side table, but I can see why the side table makes more sense. The color is perfect and it fits in nicely with your decor. Love all your couch pillows too!

How cute!! What are the odds that you would find the perfect gray!!
Here it is snowing pretty hard. Maybe another 6 inches before it stops....

Hi Kelly,
Love your new table. It works so great as a side table. Love the hamper relocated to the chair. Awesome!

The table does indeed look great there! I can see how the airiness of it would look better in that spot than the wicker piece, which now has a new home where it too looks perfect!

The stool is the perfect height for a table. Good choice Kelly.

Rosa Garrett said...

Very cute side table. I love the shape of it. I also love your floors.....could you tell me about them? I am looking to get hardwood, or something similiar and yours are perfect. Do you mind sharing details with me?

Thanks!

I love it all!!! Now I must ask you a question! WHERE is the STUFF most of us have on our tables??? I am thinking of Louis Dean's glasses and box of tissues and wine glass and the remote control for the TV and the book that was just being read. I think we have too much DEBRIS in our life!!! But I just move SOME of it when I take pics so it doesn't look awful!
As always, your home speaks of peace!
I love it!

Love your Nordic style, the side table is perfectly charming right where it's placed commanding attention in the room.

AND I AGREE with a comment here that, that 4th pictures is charming.
