See it from this angle.
Here, the height is what I am talking about. I made it this tall because my last sofa had very high side arms and this one is low, So the table is way toooooooooo tall.
This is why I put this off for so long. I have a beautiful damask cloth that I always use on it, and then I just change the cover one to go with whatever color scheme or accessories I am using. So to shorten the legs, I had to cut off the skirt and then redo the welting hem. It really only took about 30 minutes, so I can't explain why I didn't do it sooner.
Also, as an update to the lamp delima. I loved reading all of your guys help about the mercury lamps I was considering for this room. In case you missed it you can read all of it here. Most of you felt like I did, that although they were gorgeous lamps, they just didn't work in my room. So, I am still on the hunt. However, I didn't take them back, my daughter loved them and they will be stunning in her more contemporary home, so I gave them to her for her Birthday which is the 22nd. She is thrilled and I am thrilled to have the perfect present. So all turned out well after all.
