Mo may be a hardy fellow, but I can sense that creature lurching through cyberspace, headed for my shins.
This made me laugh for about five minutes.
Nah, more like ten.
I do like how it looks, weird that it's so small! Sure doesn't look it.
This could go on a few different threads (not momentous enough to start a new one), putting it here fairly arbitrarily -- just made another craigslist purchase!
It's for sozlet, so she can really spread out and do her art 'n' stuff. She's had a little 2' x 2' table that just won't do, anymore. Plus, this has some storage. Most of her art stuff should fit in there.
I wanted something that wasn't a total eyesore but wasn't expensive enough that I'd freak if she messed it up. ('Cause 5-year-old [she's actually five now btw!] and art = messes.) This is not in perfect condition but it's solid wood, solidly built, Bombay Company, the gal said it was cherry. She said "make an offer", I said "well I don't want to totally lowball you, can you tell me roughly what you had in mind?" she said "$30?" I said "oh, great, I was thinking $25 [actually, I was thinking $50]", she said "sure", I said "sold".
It's not perfect but for $25 (wood! solid!) I love it.
