Something new.....

Raise your hand if you love the smell of fresh cut pine.....Can you see my hand flailing away??? I love to go to the hardware store and walk down the isle with all the wood and then take some of it home with me. That's what I smell everytime I walk past this...... Craig built me this little sofa table about a month ago. I was out of semi-gloss black paint so it sat for a while, but now it's done and I just love it. I love the simple lines and size of it. The legs are routered with a little design but it is hard to see in this picture. I wanted to put this table in the bay window in our living room, behind the love seat. But, when I did, it just didn't look right. So, I put it along the wall of the stair case instead. This, of course, meant some rearranging and the tweaking of other things, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, right? He also built me a ladder to hang my quilts on, but it's not finished quite yet. That will hopefully be done this weekend. I have several Goodwill finds that are in the need of finishing, too. Sounds like a fun weekend to me! :):):)
