Hey, guys, I am stiiillll working on the dresser-turned-tv-stand, so Richard will be showing you how to keep the sofa from bumping against the wall. My newly painted walls, that I don’t want to paint again for a very long time.
As you have probably guessed by now, Richard won this round and we’ll be moving the tv into the keeping room. The only way I could figure out how to arrange this space was to place the love seat (previously in the living room) in front of the small bar area, which is directly behind the kitchen sink. So, in addition to protecting the walls, we didn’t want the love seat to slide under the bar and cause anyone a concussion if they sat up too suddenly.
I had stuffed pillows behind it when in the living room, but we needed a six inch gap in this spot. Richard created spacers which would attach to each end of the love seat and rest against the baseboard.
See how he even rounded the end to fit over the shoe molding? He also covered the end with scrap fabric to protect the floor from scratches, then screwed the assembly on the inside of the bottom love seat frame.
I kind of wish he had attached them a little farther towards the center so that they wouldn’t be quite as noticeable, but they’ll do for now.
For a sofa with straight legs, it would be easy to attach a board to the side of each back leg. Not quite so simple with the bun feet, but Richard figured it out. Now I can move the love seat to clean (ha!) and move it right back in place. I had previously tried non-skid pads on the bottom of the feet, which worked great to keep it from bumping against the wall, but also meant I couldn’t slide it when I wanted.
I’m hopeful that the tv stand will be finished by Friday, and I’ll explain then why it is taking so long. Another one of those lessons in patience that I never seem to master.
Sooo, whatcha’ been up to this week? Big projects? Little projects? Vacation?
