Fish don't fry in the kitchen, Beans don't burn on the grill - But check out my kitchen table!

So I can not believe how long it's been since I have posted. But rejoice! (or not) I have found my camera cable!

We've been in the house regularly for over a month, and I have a lot of catching up to do to properly chronicle the chaos!

On the last episode we had finished the bathroom and were ready-ish to move more stuff in. I am moving everything here but in pieces. We didn't get this house to crap it up. The intent is to have a place that is set up to make a dyslexic home-maker as successful as possible! To that end, I am trying to take everything at a reasonable pace (the opposite of the first 3 mos of this year) while at the same time not being lazy.

One very recent addition is a table and chairs that I am ECSTATIC about - thank you Craigs list. I will let the pictures speak for themselves:

Table and chairs:

Chair and Leg Details

Perhaps Polly is right and I don't even really like nice things. Perhaps this is the 1982 VW truck of tables. Regardless, I love it and I think it is a work of art.

Enough! I don't want to send anyone into shock by posting too much. I hope to have more tomorrow!


  1. totally passed a green rabbit truck on the freeway the other day.

    nice table, nice pics.

  2. Green - I didn't even know that was a choice! TY for you kind comments

  3. Finally... I know you are alive because I saw you the other day, but your blog was getting lonely. I love the new (to you) table and chairs. They are indeed a work of art. Better than a Rabbit truck- no zip ties!

  4. I haven't seen a fleur de lys integrated into a cool formica top design. Awesome! The metal details are exquisite, especially the curve of the piece that connects the back rest to the chair base.

  5. Looks much more comfier -- good find! -- L
