The couch and chair are GONE! I now have money to play with.
$800 (and considering we bought them for $1200 5 long years ago.....not too shabby)
Moving on with our plan.
My taste in tables was much too expensive for our budget....so that's when we improvise.
So we headed out to look at wood (I love the smell of wood)
I braved death by riding in the back, holding on to our precious sweet smelling wood so it wouldn't slide out where the door couldn't quite close.
We sanded down our old kitchen table and are going to [attempt to] build a new table top for it. Anyone know how to age wood?? I know how to beat it up and distress it.....but still haven't found a good way to give it that amazing faded grey color......suggestions??
My house is covered top to bottom in dust, and my hands in splinters.
all worth it.

our new (ahem, referbished--we got a steal!) dyson animal that we bought ourselves for our Christmas present, because we are boring like that.
cafe rio. I'm sure we will be there quite often over the next little while, and we are not complaining.
