Aunt Karen and Uncle John to Violet

Monday, May 16, 2011


This is were I go when I've had a bad day.
My table is complete and I LOVE it! It's counter high. I do most of my work standing, I even sew standing. It is much bigger than my old table. It measures 38" high, 38"wide, and 56" long.

I can now hide my trash can too. The Closetmaid canvas baskets fit on the shelves.

Here's the original from Pottery Barn. I think we did a pretty good job getting it to look like the original. This one cost $1100. Mine cost $200.

The top has three layers of polyurethane. Nice and shiny.
I plan on getting a stool for the other side of the table so Violet can sit at the table and do projects too.
I did a little rearranging and organizing too. I moved the bookshelf in front of the stairs and my cabinet to the window wall. I'm rethinking that space too. I'd like to make something for my serger to sit on rather than that old desk.


I woke Violet up this morning and said happy monday to her. She rolled over, looked at me, and then started singing Happy Birthday. She even got all the words right. Then she asked if I wanted a birthday hug :).
Tonight we'll grill hamburgers, have Baskin Robbins mint chocolate chip ice cream and hopefully finish putting the table top on my new sewing table. Pics of that to come soon.

Every time I get the vacuum out Violet runs to get hers.
