Do you ever go back and look at your Pinterest boards? I rarely do and I am always shocked to find how similar they all are–my kitchens: mostly white cabinets, my bathrooms: mostly marble. This subconscious pinning will help with the decision-making process when it comes to building my dream home….
Lately, I’m pinning square coffee tables. I never thought about them much because I’ve only lived in tiny apartments with little rectangular coffee tables, including my current ottoman/foot rest/sleeping surface for small guests. (True story–I pushed the ottoman up to an arm-chair to make a ‘chaise’ and made a guest sleep on it. I didn’t get any complaints, but I also didn’t get any, “That was wonderful!”)
The square coffee table intrigues me because they seem so large. I stack some junk on one end, there’s a messy pile of remotes in another corner, folded laundry that just won’t go away, and still plenty of room for my feet and a Diet Coke (I refuse to own a coffee table that I wouldn’t be okay putting my feet on–I’m my own child proofing, i.e. Marie-proofing).
