Tale of Two Tables, Two

I have 2 tables. (Which I totally did on purpose.)  The glass top one I inherited with My New Place, (as opposed to My Newest New Place!).

dinette chairs

And the white fold down one, I bought from DD1, specifically for this house.

(Please ignore the Valentine’s Day leftover tablecloth.  This is all about the TABLE!)

 

 

 

1 had to go according to Nony’s 1 in 1 out rule.

Can you believe I got rid of the one that I had already painted 2 of the chairs purple??   The table was too big for the space.  And PP and I kept tripping over those gorgeous legs,

So horribly mean, reaching out those gorgeous curls to trip the unwary!

 

at the other house.   So…… buh bye!   My friend, Kimberorangely, who took it didn’t want the chairs.  But their day will come.  Be afraid, chairs. Be very afraid.  I’m a known killer.

Funny story.  When I saw the posting on Freecycle, wanting a table, I didn’t think anything of it. I just responded that I had a table.  When my friend, Kimberorangely called and said, “Is this you?”  I answered, “Yes! Is this you??”  We thought it was hysterical that neither one of us recognized each other’s names!  (To be fair, hers was initials, with her last name.   It’s a VERY common one too!  And yes, Kimberorangely is not her real name.  But, she likes orange, and my name is Purplelinda, so what could I do??)

So, I just need 1 more tiny table, to put the modem on, before I can move the other table into it’s proper position.

Hey, I have a tiny table!

Oh yeah, right!!  that would last all of 2 seconds!  As soon as PP walked in the door, she’d screech “MINE!!”  And that’d be all she wrote.  Poor modem would be in smithereens on the floor, I’d be out of Internet, and the world would end.    <sigh>

So, yeah, that ain’t happenin!

So…. still in need of 1 tiny table….   Any ideas??   Anybody??  

Crickets…….                             <sigh>

 

Aha!  Thank goodness for Sweet Friend!   He’s my idea man!  When he came to visit last night, I was on the computer, (in my Office!) and when I walked out into the dining room, this is what I saw!

Brilliant!!

 

 

The only thing I had to do was decorate!   Thanks, Sweet Friend!  You’re the bestest Sweet Friend I have!
