Well, little projects are still projects, right?

Ever have one of those weekends where you had a ton of planned projects and ended up not doing any of them? That was my weekend! And now it's Monday...

I mentioned last week I had planned to build a sofa table for my new living room layout. But, I'm having one of those moments where I can't decide on the style I want. And as history has shown me, if I can't decide there's usually something better out there waiting for me to find it.

So in the meantime I spent the weekend shopping with the girls, looking for some inspiration, and getting in some much needed friend time. I did manage to fit in a few little projects though...just to keep the creative juices flowing!   

Another quick fall decor project, prepping bottles for vases, and extra organizing of the kitchen to keep supplies at hand. Easy Sunday Funday projects to do while watching the Seahawks game. Go Hawks!

A silver-dipped effect on these bottles adds some lux and a quick fall decor project to keep the creativity flowing. 

Adding hooks to the cabinet door below the mixer keeps measuring cups and spoons close at hand. And the baking pans get much needed relief from nesting by adding a divider to keep them upright. 

Small progress is still progress, but I'm still lacking the sofa table and it's at the top of my list of big projects...once I figure out the plan.

Last week I thought I had a plan, to build something simple and efficient, just to fill the space. Something like this table by Jenna Sue Design Co. 

 A simple sofa table like this one from  Jenna Sue Design Co.   is quick to make and offers great display options, but little storage.

While the display space the simple table offered was great, the options for adding storage are limited. And, since this will be one of the key pieces in my new entry, I would like options for keeping shoes, scarves and hats, bags and things out of sight.  

I also like the idea of adding extra seating. I have a small house, so when entertaining, the more options for seating the better. Something like this table from City Farmhouse is appealing too.

And the storage option here? Ottomans That have a storage base. Now that could hold a lot of shoes! So something like this could definitely work, but although I admire the rustic feel and exposed hardware, it's not my personal style and wouldn't really fit the rest of the room...so a modification of this style is still in consideration.

But then, what about the little things? I saw this one by Sarah M Dorsey Designs and sort of fell in love with the drawers and the extra room for bins and boxes on the bottom. No extra seating but plenty of extra storage. 

So simple and easy, seating or storage...what will I choose? Stay tuned, because even though I've narrowed it down, I'm not even sure yet!
