While your on-the-job performance has heretofore been quite
satisfactory, recently you are not performing up to ability.
The lastest contestants in our 3-week search for a
coffee table are as follows:
#1: Square (our first choice of shape), sizeable, and cheap.
I might want to paint its little bottom.
#2: Same size as above but simple lines. Kind of a wallflower,
but an easier keeper -- no carving to dust.
#3: Not square but long enough to hold all the stuff that inevitably collects on a
family room coffee table. Scuffed, but that's why God made paint, or Olde English.
#4: From Ethan Allen -- a pine piece with a past.
Also scuffed, and I don't much like lower shelves... things get lost & dusty down there.
#5: Another square. Good condition, cheap, but there's that lower shelf....
#6: A dark horse in the race! Certainly not square, but l-o-n-g enough for any amount
of party wineglasses and plates of half-eaten nibbles.
#7: Another contestant in the "Love Me I'm Square" category.
But -- lower shelf. Not sure if that's a deal breaker or not. It's from West Elm. Looks heavy.
#8: Remember these? Almost square, and with a drawer.
Books might work. We've got a lot of them in the study (below).
(That chow table went to Goodwill year before last,
but that's how we know we want a big square table.)
Do you like any of them, or think they are right for our room?
Help me out -- tell me which one!
Empty space does not hold magazines, catalogs, a scented candle,
television remotes, books, pens, and boxes of tissues.
If all else fails, this beauty is still available for a piddling thousand bucks.
All we need is the Adirondack lodge to go with it.
Have a spectacular weekend!
I am having a very rare weekend with both of my daughters.
At the same time. Such fun! -- Cass
