Glass And Metal Lori Laptop Table

The Glass And Metal Lori Laptop Table is another item I picked up durning the World Market 40% off furniture sale. 

I wanted a two gold laptop/ eating table for instead of a coffee table. More on that later.  

Loves

I love the width of the table. It’s wide enough for my 15” laptop and a mug of tea. Perfect

Like my previous purchases,  I love the weight of this table. I don’t have to worry about it falling over if brushed.  

The color is just perfect. Not to shiny and not too dull.  

Cons 

Smudges Easily 

The bright of the bottom the table will not fit under my sofa. This is the tables fault; I have a low profile sofa. Crate and Barrel is to blame.

I purchased two of the Gold Round Gold Metal Jonas Accent Tables during the 40% off furniture sale.  No need to beat around the bush, I LOVE THIS TABLE. 

The main feature that I love about the table is the weight. It is a solid table.  I could have bought a similar table from Ross Dress for Less or Burlington Coat Factory, however, the weight of the table would be inferior. I really wanted a table the wouldn’t move or rock if I brushed against it. 

The only bad things about the table is that it collects dust and smudges. I just wipe them down with a diluted cleaning solution.

Updating Small Reach in Pantry with Flamingos

March 23, 2018 in Home / Home Goods

If you don’t know I purchased a new home in late October of 2018.  I had all these grandiose plans of updates I wanted to make immediately.  My pockets and plans didn’t match.

I love flamingos.  I don’t know why.  I just love them.

Pantry Dimensions

18” Length

72” Width

108” Height

Supplies

Drop Cloth

6” roller

1” paint brush

Paint

Decals

Level

Pencil

Painters Tape (optional)

Door Knobs from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074JM7H7F/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Level: Easy

Time: 1-4 hrs. depending on experience

I ordered the flamingos from CaliMomDesigns on Etsy.  Each flamingo is 6″ tall and approximately 3″ wide. The decals are sold by the sheet. There are 20 flamingo decals per sheet. I purchased a copper, pink and dark blue sheets.

I removed everything from my pantry.  I removed any marks on the walls with a Mr. Clean Eraser.  It works great on flat paint.

I didn’t know how to remove the wire shelving.  I wanted to keep it because the shelving because I wasn’t prepared to pay for a shelving new system. I had to paint around the wall attached pieces; a pain.

I painted my wall with Behr Premium Plus Ultra Interior Semi-Gloss Enamel Ultra Pure White 3750.  I didn’t not like this paint.  My walls were flat off white; however, it took several coats to cover.  I let the paint dry 24 hours between coats.

I marked my spacing with a level. I placed the decals approximately 12″ apart horizontally and each row is about 4″ apart.
