Help Me Choose, Please

Ive been doing really good with the daily chores this week, but for some reason I havent been able to get everything crossed off my list each night. For instance, I start the load of laundry put it in the dryer and it stays in the dryer until I need to put more clothes in. Am I the only one that does this. Anyway, I hope to get the rest of my list tackled tonight and have my house looking nice neat and clean. I am once again in a decorating mode, I think its because Target is having a GREAT sale as is Pier 1. Hubby got the toybox painted so I am in the process of deciding where to place it and looking for a nice cushion to go on top. Once its in place I'll take a picture just for you. Also, I want to paint the console table that I scored from the thrift store awhile ago, but cant decide whether to paint it white or black. What do you think?

The table will reside in the living room which is painted a tanish color. Those UGLY drapes are gone and will soon be replaced with some nice burlap ones like these. Here is a picture of the other furniture in the room. I am looking for new pillows and plan to paint the coffee table as well, but havent decided what color. Your help is much appreciated. Help me out white or black sofa table and white, black, or expresso coffee table.


  1. Well, you don't have to ask me twice to put in my two cents! ;) At first, I couldn't decide between black and white, but when I saw the rest of the furniture, it was immidiately clear--black. As a matter of fact, I think you should paint all your accent tables black. What a nice continuity that would be. Also, many home decor magazines will tell you that black is an anchor in the room. One design consultant even said, "Every room should have some black furniture in it as a base." Something to think about, I guess. Good luck!

  2. Black definitely. It seems that it would match everything else you have better than white. I personally love black furniture.

  3. Just found your blog and definitely think black! Can't wait to see all of the finished products!

  4. I think black would look fabulous and really look sleek. Black naturally lends itself to your fabulous sofas. Good find, that table is awesome.

    And no, you're not the only one who leaves laundry in the dryer. I think it happens with every single load at our house. Lol.

  5. I wasn't sure at first but when I saw the drapes you are going to do and the furniture then I would definitely go with black. The coffee table would look good as black too.

  6. I LOVE the fabric on your window panels. Where did you find it?


  7. So funny! Must have read over the part where you called the fabric ugly ;) Seriously though, how come my thrift store doesn't have all these great buys?!? I've found a few things, but the pickings are so slim.

  8. I have to mention that I LOVE the burlap curtain idea. I may have to copy that at some point.

    Hey, if you want to send me an email I can talk to you more about my own process of finding my style. You know...if you want.

    You're doing a great job with your house. You should be very proud of yourself!
