More honey-dos

I got a new chair for my nest and wanted Mr. CnW to whip me up a new end table.  I didn’t want it taking up too much space, so gave him the dimensions and let him work his magic.
The chair that I had there was just too big.  It was a chair and a half and a twin sofa sleeper.   We moved it to Mr. CnW’s den and it looks so much better there.   This one is a much better size for the nest.
Here’s the chair with a little bench I was using for an end table in the meantime.   (He also made that a few years ago).


And here’s the new table.


I’ve got more room for storage with the shelf on the bottom.
I decided not to get a matching ottoman because we had the trunk in our storage room and it seemed like such a waste to not use it.    I can always order one later if I decide to, but for now I’m liking the trunk.  (more storage space.  LOL)

Here’s a little pillow I made for my friend Patty whose birthday is Saturday.


Kinda like the way it looks there.  Hmmm.

The pattern is a freebie from Jan Patek.  It was offered on her blog last fall, I think.

Well, it's looking like the things on my "honey do" list are almost all completed.  I know Mr. CnW is looking forward to more golf and fewer "jobs" as the warmer weather gets here.  It just gives me more time to start his list for next winter...

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Hugs, Anne

Great job Mr. CnW, oh yes, more golf weather is what I want for sure. Love the chair and the new table is a perfect height for the chair, your magazines are right handy for browsing. Your nest is very cozy!

That table looks perfect with "your" chair. Enjoy. I can see hours spent reading, quilting, or just watching tv in that comfy chair.

Hugs - Karen
