#makeovermonday / a dining room table in the living room = cozy game table!

Today’s edition of #makeovermonday was completely inspired by my mom! <3

For a week or so now, this card table has been sitting in the middle of our living room floor:

We had a few guests over and pulled the table out for the kiddos to play games. Our girls kept playing and we never got around to putting the table back in the closet.

My mom had the idea on Sunday to pull out the old dining room table that was hidden in our garage and make a permanent game table in the living room! YES!

The dining room table is actually my parent’s old dining room table that had been stored in my grandmother’s garage for years. When we cleaned out her garage last summer, I claimed the table for my own garage – in hopes to use it in our home one day.

I love having a table with memories:

That’s the table right there! It has a table cloth over it – but it belonged to my parents back in the day. That was my first birthday 🙂

So, here’s the progression of our cozy corner in the living room.

It looked like this a couple of years ago:

Then, I changed it up a bit:

Thankfully, I have a wonderful husband that is crazy enough to dig out the old table from the garage at 9pm!! He was sooooo happy….

I didn’t clean it off. I didn’t paint it…yet.

And now, this is our new living room corner:

Yep. The walls look naked. All of our accessories are still upstairs in the spare bedroom from my crazy July experiment. I haven’t decided what I’m keeping yet and I’m still enjoying a semi empty house!

I LOVE the table in the living room.

It fits perfectly in the corner. I’m so excited to have this piece incorporated into our home.

Great idea, Mom!!

Have you ever thought about putting a table in your living room? It just might work!! Happy Monday, friends ~

ps – I was requested to add photos of Brock, ha! Here you go, Mrs. Annette – and a bonus of the other 2 crazy ones 🙂
