Craft cottage, baby robins, Restore, and Craigslist
Anyhoo found this amazing table online at a furniture store in Lynden and since I happen to be meeting friends for coffee in Lynden over the weekend I thought I should at least take a look at it! LOVE at first sight I tell ya! Yes, it did come home with me =) I will show you the whole thing very soon ;)
While I was looking at it I took measurements of the table to 1. make sure it was going to fit in the space 2. because I knew the hubby would ask. I drove home and showed my sweet hubby the photo I had found online and gave him the measurements. He said if I wanted it lets go get it. So into the truck we go. (he says it will all fit in his truck we don't need the trailer) We get to the store I purchase the table and four stools, it takes 3 men to load it into the truck. As we are driving home he informs me he doesn't know how we are going to get it out of the truck. It is far to heavy for he and I to lift. Ugh! I start wracking my brain to think of someone I can call. Then he calmly says "I don't know how we are going to get it into the room." (the store had double doors that we took it through) Ack! We get it home, he calls a friend who is willing to come right over they get it unloaded, remove the top off the table and have barely a half-an-inch to get it in the door without having to take the entire thing apart, whoops. But the important thing is, it is in place and beautiful!
Well, that's it for today. Have a marvelous Tuesday! Thanks for stopping in!
