I Changed Out My End Tables

My old end table.
I love the color and design of my old end tables, but they are square, which makes displaying photo's and having room for a drinks (or anything else) rather crowded.

The school desks my kids used in their rooms as children were in the basement. They are rectangle and the tops are solid wood and stained beautifully. I couldn't sleep one night last summer, so I got up at 2:00 in the morning and brought the desks upstairs to see how they looked ... and I liked it!

Satisfied, I went back to bed and tried (unsuccessfully) to fall asleep. Unable to sleep, I waited until it was light and went outside to water all my plants. I also attempted to put in a mole deterrent that emits sound and an electronic pulse, which supposedly drives those destructive little critters nuts and forces them to move on.

I must have struck a tree root, because I couldn't get it flush with the ground. I fiddled with it until I was soaking with sweat, so I left it be and decided I'd move it after I cooled off. When I got inside, I took off my wet shirt. Then I noticed the old end tables still in the kitchen, which I had neglected to moved downstairs when I brought the desks up. The door from the kitchen to the back hallway ... the fastest route to the basement ... isn't wide enough to get the tables through, so they would have to be taken out the front door, and in through the garage to the basement. I picked up one and headed for the door when I realized three things:
  1. I had forgotten the top of the table lifted off and was a chest that could be used separate of the base. Yea! More toy storage!
  2. The glass I had cut for the top fit perfectly inside the base and could be used as new end tables outside on my front porch.
  3. I was half naked, and probably should get dressed before I went outside!
I quickly put my shirt back on. I stacked the two chests under one of the end table/desks and put the bases outside, then moved the current (smaller) patio side tables from the front porch to the garage.

I think the legs on the desks would look better black than the current brown, so I plan on painting them (sometime), but all in all, I'm pleased. The rectangle desks give me room for the lamps, photo's, and leave plenty of room for a drink and other items I need to set down when relaxing in the living room.

Definitely gives me more room.
