Tater thought this table up on his own, and I LOVE how it turned out!

As a gift to each other for our 9 year anniversary we remodeled our bedroom. We were ready for something fresh. Our once red curtains had started becoming more pinkish color and were white on the back side from fading. Here is our bedroom makeover before and after.

We were ready for something bright and less heavy. We moved the dark pieces to our son’s room with the collection they belonged with. We brought our mirrored pieces upĀ from the studio and used those for a dresser at the opposite wall of the bed.
That left us with no bedside tables. Tater said he would figure something out. He sure did. He started with the wood circle that we used in the background of THIS shoot. He got them out of the hospital dumpster when he was working one night. ha-ha. He spent a lot of time sanding them and the wood is now super smooth. Now it was just deciding on a base. Somehow he thought up the idea of constructing a base out of pipe. He drew up 3 different base designs I got to pick from. I love the airy feel and industrial look it gives.

The corner with the new chair is a new fun area for us. We used to have a pack in play in that area, but now we are able to drink coffee, do our devotions, or read books to the kids there. We love it for a place to just get away sometimes.

With the new sheer curtains we are now able to have a soft glow of light from the patio shine into our room. It is so enjoyable. We are thankful for our new room!

    You do realize that I’m looking for “somebodies” to take over the Shooting Stars 4-H club, looks like you both have what it takes. What do you think?
    That table looks like a great Best of Class, Best of Show at the fair! So unique and also useful. Love it!
