nobody puts baby in the corner

I’m switching things up in our family room just a little bit. There was a dull little corner at the end of our mac daddy leather sectional.

Now, I love this sofa more than my luggage (Steel Magnolias) but it does make arranging/styling this room a little challenging. Because of the sea of dark leather and the dark hardwood floors, I’m trying to mix in some lighter pieces to balance it out.

For the past month or so, each time I’d go into Tattered Tiques I would stare at this little table. I love it. The size, the shape, the drawers, the casters, the pulls…ok so basically everything about it.

Yesterday I finally brought baby home and put her in the corner. Sorry, Johnny Castle.

I added a bronze PB lamp, a little hardware drawer (from TT, as well) and a pretty little topiary that I picked up at our nursery yesterday.

I recently gave our Mora clock a little makeover with some fresh Annie Sloan in Coco and Old White and put that in the corner as well.

Baby looks good in the corner and is having the time of her life.

Sorry, I’m bringin corny back. 😉
