Here is one thing I have started in recent months that I have actually finished. I made it my goal to use some of my Farmer's Market earnings from the summer to find a nice bedside table on Craigslist or KSLclassifieds. The KSL sight has tons more on it that Craigslist around here. I could not believe my good fortune when I saw this little beauty one Sunday evening. "Pecan nightstand. Salt Lake City. $15" Wha-at? I told the Master we were driving to SLC. Look at the darling curvy legs and the carved details on this sweet thing. It was literally in downtown Salt Lake in an old apartment building. Dee remarked that he was sure he had tracted this building as a missionary in SLC back in 1976! (He says that about every building in that city because it is true!) I asked the young lady if she was sure she only wanted $15 and she said yes. It had belonged to her grandma but she was needing more room. Master Dee lugged that thing down three flights of stairs. It is solid and heavy. I was so thrilled! Then it sat in the garage all covered up for a few months as we took care of Diana and new baby Lucas. I got to it late in the fall.
The result? I was quite pleased!
I wanted to protect the surface so I made a simple table runner and edged it with black grosgrain ribbon.
I love having a drawer for all of my bedside needs, you know...nail files, foot creme, chapstick, prescriptions, tons of books and magazines, the occasional hidden chocolate...
I am glad I got something done, finally! Hopefully I can share a few more finished projects in the weeks to come as I become more organized (slightly smirking here!).
I'm linking to a fabulous spring party at: Tuesday's Treasures at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia. So many cute ideas!
