The Carpenters Wife.....

                                  Hi there.....thought I would do a quick post to show you the coffee table John made for our living room....we had been using a six foot bench he made years ago but it just wasn't working..
                         I love my pedestal table ....he has sold alot of those over the years...and here is my lovely new coffee table (drum roll) ....
                  I love it!!! Its the right size....the right colour and it has four drawers and a little wee cupboard...the top of it is an old barn door and the original handle is still on it...cool !!!
                       O.k enough of this fun stuff ..I am off today and have sooooooooo much to do it isn't funny! Thanks so much for coming by hope your day is a good one! x0x0 Chrissy
