Every now and then a random idea pops into my head of something La Maisonnette needs.
At the beginning of lockdown (6 weeks ago now) I thought I should make a drinks trolley.
It turned out to be one of the most frustrating things I've ever tried to make.
The whole thing kept twisting out of shape and it was always leaning forwards.
In the end I had to pull it apart and remake it.
It's now been standing up straight for weeks!
But because there's no reason to hurry during a lockdown I have only just set it up with drinks.
Now, I'm no drinker so the labels on the pink bottles are just random labels, I don't even think they're wine labels. But when I found I had a green bottle...well...I've watched Moulin Rouge the movie enough times to know I needed a bottle of absinthe in there!
The big challenge now is finding the right place to put it.
Here it is to the left of the fireplace.
If it stays there it can't be seen when you're looking in the house from the outside...and it's very hard to photograph there!
Here it is to the right of the fireplace.
Not easily viewed there either.
How about near the dining table?
By the stairs?
Next to the couch?
Tricky to photograph there too, makes it look wonky!
Let me know your thoughts on where it should go!
This is how it looks most of the time 😂
Anyone else knock things over all the time?!?!
The other thing I made months ago is the coffee table.
I seem to be obsessed with the antique gold finish on things in this house.
That's not a mirror in it, it's 'glass'.
The outside of the house is now finished!
A major accomplishment - hooray for lockdown! Pictures coming soon.
Thanks for stopping by here, let me know your thoughts on where that drinks trolley should go.
