The Marble Table Top Finds a Stand

Saturday K and I were estate sale-ing around town and K stumbled upon this table stand and announced its perfection and suitability for our marble table top. I quickly concurred. We decided to pay full price instead of waiting for the 50% off that would be in place the next day - what if someone buys it out from under us!? So we plunked down our hard earned monies and walked away with the perfect table support. It might be the best $12 we've spent since 25 cent draft night at our favorite bar. Of course if we could have held out a day it would have been six bucks but that might have felt like stealing. Anyway, we are quite pleased to have found a base for our table top.

This area of the room is starting to finally come together. Of course when we eventually get in there and paint and refloor and do all the things in our heads that we invision for the space it will change a great deal. But for now we are pleased with the current situation. But I cannot wait to get in there and make some more dramatic changes [for the better I hope!].

Just a couple of pictures of the reading nook - still one of K's favorite spots in the house!
