I was enjoying the latest post from the wonderful blog Cote de Texas here when I saw a picture of a beautiful table with a map of the plan of Paris from the 1700’s featured on the table top.
The table is from Councill Furniture. I had only to look above the computer screen to see my own map of Paris hanging on the wall. H-m-m-m-! What if…?
I put it on top of a slip covered hassock. Instant table! Then, I found a blue glass bowl and some white flowers similar to the original photo.
I could put it on the metal base that is usually in front of this sofa and if I were to paint the base black, it would look even more like the original photograph.
Here is the way this base usually looks:
You can find beautiful wrapping paper at gift stores and if they were put into a frame, they would make a stunning table. You can buy frames very inexpensively at local thrift stores. If the paper does not fit exactly, just trim it or add other related pictures around the edge. I purchased these papers for another project which I told about here. The first is another map of Paris.
Here is the same idea using three garden stools and a round glass top.
