Wow- I keep meaning to post and then the days fly by and here it is, a few weeks since my last visit here! Motherhood is sure keeping me busy. =) However, I don't intend to let this little haven disappear completely from my life, so I hope that you, my faithful friends, will check back in once in a while!
Today, I must introduce you to the newest member of our furniture-family. It is in fact, quite possibly the best piece of furniture we own. It was made for us by my soon-to-be-brother-in-law, David. He is incredibly talented at making all sorts of things, but especially furniture and woodworking. He asked what I wanted for Christmas this year, and I jokingly said "a coffee table." And guess what? He said "ok" and actually made one for us!
Here's a view into our lovely living room- how it looks most days, complete with pump, baby toys, bumbo seat, and cat curled up under the couch (can you spot her?). But on to the reason for the photo: the coffee table. The coffee table is made from cherry wood. I love the rough-hewn look, David and Morna (my sister) used hammers to weather the wood and make it look more old. I love it!
Of course, this new coffee table makes everything else look bad, so it kind of makes me want to make-over our living room. We'll see if that actually happens...
