A few weeks ago, I received a coffee table that was once my grandmother's, and has been living at my cousin's house for the last several years. I've told him forever that if he ever gets rid of it, I absolutely want it -- and somehow, he forgot that and gave it to my little sister who just moved into her first off-campus house (she's a sophomore in college). Alas! However...it turned out that her new place already had coffee tables, and into my car it went. Sadly, it is just too big for the space my apartment has for a coffee table, and besides, I already have a coffee table (also from my grandma). What to do???
I decided that I would find new legs for this grand table, and use it behind my couch. And today, that's what I did. The original legs just screwed off, and I was hoping to find new screw-on legs but was having a lot of trouble. Then I found this trestle thing at IKEA. It took a lot of tries to figure out how to get the table top situated, but several grunts and groans and a bit of blue painter's tape later, I had it all worked out. And I have to say, I really really like it. And I'm proud that I did it all by myself. Like a big kid.
Oh, I also (because I'm just that creative) turned the white cubicle things on their sides and used them as shelving. Genius? You decide. Pictures below.

We'll be making dessert soon...probably fresh-sliced strawberries with chocolate ice cream. Mmmmmmm.....
I hope everyone's Wednesday nights are as relaxing as ours is tonight!

Perez Hilton says:
Did you watch part one of Charlie Gibson's interview on ABC with Sarah Palin on Thursday night????
We felt like we were watching a lady version of George W. Bush, only she's more eloquent and fuckable.
Like many politicians, instead of giving straight answers at times, Sexy Sarah would just jibber jabber.
In fact, at one point during the interview, Charlie Gibson said to the GOP VP pick, "I got lost in a blizzard of words there. Is that a yes?"
If the GOP somehow manages to snag the presidency, let's hope that John McCain stays well.
With Sarah in power, looks like there's a chance that 'God' could will us to go to war with Russia, Iran and Pakistani terrorists all at the same time.

Yet another crowd shot...I hope they didn't want to get that car out of there any time soon!
