I came home from Bunco last night and told my hubby, "Something happened at Bunco that's going to change everything."
"Everything?" he asked.
"Everything," I replied.
Bottom line? I'm getting a craft table. I can now have a dedicated space in our home for crafting!!!!
The deal is, a few months ago, the gal who hosted Bunco hauled in this fabulous table from outside. It was big, but with sides that dropped down, and beautiful turned legs. It was painted "shabby chic white" and had lovely matching chairs with a pad, which were upholstered in a really cute, cheery fabric. I was drooling.
I go, "That's your outside table??" I'm thinking, If I didn't have a new dining room table, I'd want it for that!
She says, "Yeah, we got a new one for our anniversary."
Well. My wheels were churning. I pictured it as a crafting table/desk! It would fit right in to my decor and would be a comfy place to sit. Plus, I could keep it small for everyday then expand it when hosted a craft night!
I kept admiring it all night and by the end of the evening, I told her, "If you ever decide to get rid of it, think of me first."
A month or so later, feeling a bit foolish but still on a mission, I e-mailed her and said, "Really. Think of me." I figured she thought I was nuts.
Last night, she says to me, "Hey. I've got news. The table is yours."
I...was...ecstatic. I almost fainted. I was so distracted all night, I didn't win a thing. OK, I never win, but still.
So now I'm making my plans. I'm tempted to put it in "the office," which is really supposed to be my hubby's man cave. I want to get out of his office, if anything. Plus it's dark in there and I feel very cut off from the rest of...everything.
Maybe my Morning Room?? Right under the window, where the morning light stream in. Then I'm picturing a bookcase on either side of the window to put all my stuff which will, of course, have to be in cute, color-coordinated containers now.
And my hubby can have his office back!
And I can host craft night! And have a desk that's more than a "paper pile catcher."
Oh, my heart goes pitter patter just thinking about it.
See? It changes everything.
P.S. The only gliche is that I need a truck to go pick it up. Hopefully, it's not too tacky to call on my SIL's ex-boyfriend to help!!! :) Then, of course, I'll post pictures!!
