Not even close.
This is an I-didn’t-have-a-lot-of-space-in-the-gatehouse-and-I-wanted-to-find-something-that-would-make-it-work-and-live-large-and-wait-until-you-see-what-I-discovered kind of post.
A just because post.
An I’m so excited I have to write it kind of post.
The kind of post where we have coffee and breakfast and tell each other how amazing our furniture is.
Oh good….you too?
I’ll go first. 🙂
When I first started planning furniture placement at the gatehouse, I had this wall I didn’t know what to do with.
It’s between two doors and it’s about 48″ long and it serves as almost a pass through space between the bathroom on the left and the craft room on the right.
Whatever furniture I placed there couldn’t really extend into the room too much or it would get in the way when you walked between the two spaces.
Really narrow because I only had about a foot to work with.
Trying to find a table that narrow is really difficult.
And then I discovered this piece at IKEA.
It’s like the superman of tables.
It’s only 10 1/4″ deep.
Almost like it’s not there.
And as wonderful as all that narrowness is, it’s not even the best part.
Most of the time the table sits there with its 10 1/4″ and looks amazing.
And then? It totally goes all superman with these gate legs on each side and extends out to….wait for it….wait for it.…59 7/8″ of craft space or card playing space or artwork space or sewing space.
I’m speechless, too.
And if that’s not Superman enough, it has three drawers on each side.
You almost don’t notice the drawers at first because they blend into the table.
They are about 14″ deep and perfect for cards or sewing supplies or craft supplies.
And when you are done sewing or crafting or creating or just being generally wonderful, simply fold the legs down and the table goes all Clark Kent and quietly, unassumingly takes its place against the wall until the next moment of glory.
If you have a small space or a pass through that is narrow, this is the table for you.
See why I had to have coffee and tell you all about it?
When your table is leaping buildings in a single bound, you simply have to discuss. 🙂
PS I’d love to hear about your amazing furniture, too. 🙂
PPS In super exciting news….the fabric is now on Houzz!!!!!!! I’m so excited and honored and full of joy! You can see the collection here.
