My son-in-law just came and picked up the blue coffee table to take to a consignment shop. The red ottoman came yesterday while I was at the vet with Abi.
It's a much better size for someone who needs to have two sets of doggy steps near it and me in my boot much of the time.
It's actually only about 8 inches smaller all around than the coffee table, but the round shape makes all the difference.
You just need a few things to decorate the top. And if I want to sit there and put up my feet, I can move them. However, I'm always in my chair. Unless I'm lying on the couch, which isn't often.
The other great thing about this ottoman is that I can take the top off and there's storage inside. Something someone living in a small space must keep in mind.
Here's a view in the other direction.
I told you the curtains were way too short. But with the lining made the way it is, I don't know quite what to do about it. I've lowered the rod as much as I can.
Here's Charlie's new favorite spot. The other day I threw this red dog bed on the couch while I was cleaning or doing something. And Charlie immediately got in it.
So, though it isn't part of my decorating theme, I leave it there because he loves it so.
This is how he looks most of the time. His tongue lolling out the side of his mouth for lack of teeth. He does not know he looks goofy, so let's not tell him.
And this photo is rather blurry, but while he's yawning, look how long that tongue is!
Poor thing. Thank goodness he's spayed, because I doubt many female dogs would find him very handsome.
But I do. And I'm his mom and a little biased. But he's worth his weight in gold to me.
