I am calling it a pillow pod. I am not sure if that is what it is actually called, but “platform-to-place-pillows-on” is long and still leaves people with a question mark on their face–I tested that phrase out a few times. Now, when I say, “I found a pillow pod for $3 for my living room,” they still might be clueless, but at least I look a little smart. I wasn’t treasure hunting when I came across the old, worn, wicker-ish pod at the ReStore, but for $3–pah, I had to have it.
You can imagine the look Chris gave me when I showed him what I found that day. “What….is it?!” That’s when I spit out my “platform-to-place-pillows-on” phrase and I immediately felt sheepish. It didn’t help my cause. And the worn look of the deck wasn’t helping, either.
However, one awesome thing about Chris is he trusts my visions. He may question one of my ideas for a minute or two, but once he sees how excited I am about a paint color or a new fabric I found or a pillow pod, he transforms into my numero uno supporter. And since I only paid $3, he jumped right on board.
After two coats of glossy, black spray paint, I’d say I upped the value considerably.
Just another little detail that has helped our living room transformation. We are coming up on our 6 week mark of living in this house and we are thrilled with the changes that are coming from a lot of hard work and late nights. I’ll leave you with a little reminder of how our living room looked 6 weeks ago and how it looks today.
