I have a theory that all homes have problem spots: odd corners or walls that we just don’t know how to handle.
I have one such space in my living room. There is a wall that sits between two doorways.
This is how it looks today.
I tried all kinds of different tables, chairs, styles and arrangements to fill the area.
Because the living room is somewhat narrow and long, I was worried about making this side of the room bulky and crowded. So I ended up with bare and spare.
I was stuck. I could not figure out what to do. Even browsing Pinterest and magazines turned up no inspiration.
Until I found this console table, on an antiquing trip with my sister.
It fits the space very well, and is low enough to use as a side table. I have been playing around with the decor on it since last summer when I bought it.
With the console in place I was able to decide on the art and the other finishing touches. Although, what am I saying, I’m far from finished. I want to update the lamp on the console, add some more art and tweak the decor a bit.
I am getting there though, bit by bit.
