To get you in the spirit 😉
Is your tree up yet?
This table could not be more impractical but it’s stunning. The oak surface has been cut with graphic patterns that were painted bright red. It comes in orange and smoked black too, but the red is by far the best. German based design collective Sleeping Dogs also created a bed with the same pattern but that is, in my humble opinion, horrendous.
On garbage night when we were walking our dog Lola, we found this small quaint little table between someones trash.
It looks like it walked out of a childrens book. It has black details on the legs and on the side of the top. A funny feature is that it opens up to reveal a box shaped storage unit. Great for knitting needles or the remote control of your TV (and in our case VCR/VHS, DVD player, UPC digital set, stereo)
I think I will try to paint it warm grey or black and maybe pad the top with a grey-ish floral pattern or a lush velvet. I would just need to buy some round shaped padding foam and fabricated pins.
Only I would leave the bottom bit wood I guess. It might be too small to pad the entire thing plus I really like the legs. I guess I could draw fake milled lines in a slightly darker colour on the legs to make it looks more rich?
I would end up with a more classic version of the well known skai/faux leather knitting poof our grannies loved.
Any suggestions? Let me know. I will make sure to post the final result on here.
