LUCITE TABLE UPDATE

I got the lucite table yesterday!  I love it but...




it is an inch too long.  Wa Wa Waaa.
I could have sworn I measured my space (obviously not!).  


For now, I'm just going to keep the current layout and just add the wallpaper...
foyer update


The lucite table will probably end up behind this sofa...


(I've been wanting to replace this drop leaf table.  It is wobbly and the folded leaf is the first thing you notice from the outside... not so pretty).


Learn from my mistake!  Measure your space before buying furniture! :)
But then again,  if you buy something you love it will find a space in your home!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Bummer, but it is fantastic and will look great under the window. Maybe your tape measure was off?

Great decision on the lucite table purchase. Bummer that it doesn't fit in the entry. It will look mighty fine behind the couch but it seems like that baby is screaming to be front and center somewhere.

I am so bummed/jealous/and happy for you! I was debating on it for the longest time after you first posted it but I live in Chicago and am working insane hours so I couldn't fathom a time when I could view it - let alone buy it. So all in all - glad you got it (and only slightly jealous ;-)

@CandidSense - I'll give you first dibs if I change my mind!

I am disappointed for you that it didn't work in the entryway, BUT I'm so glad you have another great place for it. It's going to be perfect behind the sofa, especially if you will see it from the window!

So glad you got it but upset plan A didn't work. Plan B behind the sofa sounds good, but I would love to take it off your hands if that's not right either :) Brandy and I were talking about road tripping toward you someday since all the goodies are apparently there.

charmaine said...

@melissa - yes, yes! We'll have lots of fun. Maybe plan it around the Elkhart Flea Market.

I just love everything about your house and I am dying for some Lucite in my own house.

Vel Criste said...

Charmaine, that piece is gorgeous! I would take it from you in a heartbeat! hehehe! Its ok, Im sure you'll find something for you entry. Just curious, how much was it? My family and I are heading to Chicago over the weekend, how far are you from Chicago? I would love to finally meet you in person?!

CandidSense said...

Charmaine - you are too kind! Its amazing how the blog world connects folks who you may never have otherwise met. I think the table is great and appreciate your kind offer. Personally I do think it would look fantastic by the window though but appreciate your offer all the same.

CandidSense said...

Charmaine - I left a response to you and earlier but I guess it didn't take. I wanted to thank you for the offer. Its so kind of you. I hope it does work for you but if it doesn't that means we get to meet!!! Either way - bonus.

The lucite table is gorgeous!!! I want one quite badly....I need a big apartment I tell ya. Too bad it didn't fit where you planned but its too pretty to pass up and you know it.

Designwali said...

Cathy Wall said...

Such a great piece! Too bad it doesn't work in the foyer, but I like where it is going and agree wholeheartedly with the idea of buying what you love.

Brandy@Chateau À Gogo said...

Yes I'm sure Plan B, C or D will work. Love it!

My Interior Life said...

I agree - buy what you love and you'll find a place. But that is a bummer. I swear I measure too, but sometimes things don't fit. :(

Love that console!
