Addition of Legs

This weekend we added legs to our Parson's table to make it a standard desk height, 30". I was originally thinking that I liked the solid sides, but once David held the two options up it was pretty obvious (at least to me :) that the 4 legs looked more cohesive.

We got these legs a few months ago from Habitat Restore for a few dollars each. They were about double in height (you can barely see it in the photo above) so David cut them down so that the table would measure 30" in height.

We added a 1x2 underneath the table so that the legs would have something more substantial to attach to. Then we primed and painted them Sherwin Williams Overjoy, the same from the console table on the other side of the room. 

I'm waiting till I finish the draperies to decide if I like the relationship of the ottomans to the table ... 

I wish the table was a little wider, so we will see. Once I add height (the draperies) to the window I may change my mind :) 

I took these photos early this morning, please excuse the weird lighting! 


Tomorrow and later this week: Eames chair update (hint I have a very cramped hand), Valentines Day prints/gifts from my Etsy shop, and a kitchen and master bedroom suite design to maximize space, storage and functionality!


  1. Love!!!! The shape and the color are perfect.

    1. Thanks so much Megan! I like the color and shape too :)

  2. Love the solution you chose. The turned legs are such a pretty accent on the table and the yellow really makes the pattern pop!

  3. Very cute! I think you made the right decision. Especially with the yellow.... tres chic!

    1. Thanks Genevieve! I love the yellow too!

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! It really changes the look of the table and now it can be used as a desk too, so win win!

  5. Love the pattern, very creative and fun technique.


Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts! I love hearing what you think! :)
