This is my entry table… it isn’t really at the entry of the house, it’s up a few steps in a ‘traffic area’ between my dining room to the left and kitchen to the right. Weird, I know. Its one of the first things you see when you enter the house and I’m sick of it looking so lame ass. However, there is one big reason I haven’t addressed it yet:
Well, he’s definitely an accessory to the problem. When we moved in, there was a big old AC unit in that wall. Huge. My husband got it out, patched up the hole, painted and called it a day.
HELLO!? What the hell is that thing still doing there?!! Oh yes, he left the power outlet up there in no man’s land. Precisely 67″ above the floor and 29-1/2″ over from the wall at the right. Squint… you can see it. I’ve been racking my brains to come up with a solution but since we are dealing with a man who will never get back to this part of the house I decided that I’m just going to have to cover it up.
Ideally, I would have loved to hang a mirror there. I haven’t found anything big enough …or should I say affordable enough in the size I need. Then, I thought about putting framed photos up in a collection, but everbody seems to do that and I didn’t want the same old thing.
Then I came up with an idea I didn’t think would materialize into anything, because the last time I really saw one up close was in 8th grade wood shop: The Candle Sconce. I did a quick search on the web and I was truly suprised to find a few that are right up my alley. I thought this would be a clever idea because of how high the sconce could be placed on the wall. I could use two of them symmetrically over the table and it could hang over the outlet on the right side. A real concern is mounting the sconce on the wall without disturbing the electrical box or conduit inside. Hmmmm, I think I’ll let my husband hang them…
(I tease because I love)
Some of the sconces I came across on my investigation. If you have a solution to my entry table problem – please let me know!! I’d love to hear it!
