Tour of the Living Room, Part 3: This Time It's Personal

Charlie loves to take things out of things. He also loves DVDs.

He is truly his father's son. I am truly not enamored of a pile of DVDs strewn all over the floor.

Solution: the bottom shelf of our DVD storage shelf is now devoted to shiny toys, for him to pull down with impunity.

This bookshelf was originally a white crappy bookshelf, but now it's a white crappy bookshelf that I painted dark and light blue. Don't worry, by the way, this really tall and heavy piece of furniture is anchored firmly to the wall with earthquake straps.

Speaking of resurfacing living room furniture, I got bored of my coffee table and decoupaged the bottom of it. I love it now.

This was surprisingly easy -- I just lay down three sheets of nepalese Lokti paper (from Continental Art Supply, they have a huge selection of decorative paper and awesome service, my favorite local art store), stuck it on with Mod Podge, and then sealed it with polyurethane.

Isn't this paper beautiful? Happy accident, it also matches my coasters.
