Orphan Furniture.....

Ever get an itch to buy something-- this happens to me mostly whilst browsing Overstock for something "practical"-- and then you buy it (damn you, Bill Me Later) and realize when it arrives you have absolutely no place, or use for it?

Case in point: The Ottomans.

I fell in LOVE with these, hard............(mine happen to be apple green-but they are the same)

But what I really needed was this guy (to the left here) So what did I do? I bought BOTH of them. So now I have FOUR ottomans. I justified it by telling myself all the things you tell yourself: It will be extra seating for guests! It adds a pop of color! They are so versatile! and my favorite: they all stack inside each other, so they won't take up that much room! 
Well, these babies showed up and the big one is HUGE! Three people can sit on it! Although I LIKE it, I really have no place for them.

I have moved them half a dozen times, and they have been in the den, the living room, and now the three of em are stacked inside each other in a corner of my living room.... where they will soon be leaving.....

So, my friends, what should I do? Craigslist? Maybe the kids rooms? Hmmm...they might like them.... oh no, NOT the garage, its already full of these orphans:
couch in there...

keeping this guy company...

and this guy too...
 Make it a Great Day!!


  1. Hey there- sounds like a good candidate for the kids rooms- they can always use extra seating! Good luck! :)

  2. Your garage looks like mine! Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

  3. I see your little orphan table like mine in your garage! It has so much potential. It would look good a distressed aqua blue, but maybe leave the top wood. Just sand and stain it again a walnut color...or paint the top aqua but heavily distess it and stain/glaze over it.
    Good luck! I want to see it when it's done.
    Thanks for checking out my blog.
