Using the decor you have and making it Adorable!

The holidays had us super busy decorating trees and garlands and vignettes-oh my! Even in the midst of all that glitter, we couldn't help but think of the non-holiday decor at one of our client's homes. 

You will remember this stunning abode...

We were there to make Christmas happen. But, we got a bit sidetracked. 

What we didn't tell you about is this....

Oh yea, it's exactly as sketchy as it looks.

We were in our client's formal living room trying to use what we had for a sweet, Christmas scene to greet guests as they came in the front door.

Here's what the room looked like before we got our mitts on it.

See this table? It looks innocent enough. 

It's NOT! It weighs 5,423 pounds (approximately). It is solid marble!!! And, worse than is a family heirloom brought over on great-grandma's back from Belgium (or something like that). So, in other words, it stays. Design around it.

If you look at the pic closely, you will see that the couch is indeed balanced on the table. That happened right after I put the camera down and rescued Jacki.

I felt she deserved to be stuck under that couch while I took the pic since I said, and I quote, "I'm usually all for a good, hair-brained idea, but that table is crazy, heavy and this is not going to happen."

Notes to self: Join weight watchers and never wear horizontal stripes again!
Famous.Last.Words. I should have known there was no talking Jacki out of it. 

So, we huffed and puffed and moved the furniture. 

Then we MacGyver'd an end table for a Christmas tree and here's what we ended up with:

I love it!

Does this inspire you to move some furniture around or assure you that those Decor You Adore girls are crazy?
