We just bought all these crates this past weekend at a flea market along with some other items, and Travis decided to make them his side table. He just bought a piece of glass and put it on top. Works well. (Click here to discover how much we payed for these awesome crates.)
View of right side.
The ottoman just broke, see the huge pothole on the far side-lovely, so it looks like that will be ready for another redo. I did it a few years ago but it doesn’t quite match the decor in here so I will be recovering it again and fixing the support bracket while I am at it.
View of the whole room.
He picked out the curtains from Lowes. The entertainment center got a new coat of brown paint over the white layer I put on it a few years back. Red chair got a slipcover put back on it. I say it all came together rather well.
So what do you think? Did he do pretty good?
