A FURNITURE FLUB.....

Don and I have just returned from the new house. It seems that I may have possibly, quite by accident, totally unaware and not meaning to at all, and never would in a million years...ordered a piece of furniture for the kitchen that is too big for the space that has been allotted to contain it. I know...I know..it is hard to believe that I could do that, and it really is not MY fault. REALLY! I checked with the architect before I ordered it and he said it would be just fine. I even gave him a print out of the piece WITH the dimensions. Well, you would think I had ordered a whole roomful of pink plastic furniture with yellow daisies to hear all the uproar. I mean, this is just a little bump in the road...a mere pebble...there is just no reason to make it into a full blown mountain with snow on top! It is a very cool piece and I will use it in my studio where it will receive the proper adoration....no biggie! I do not know why this has to turn into a barrage on my math skills! Yes, I can use a ruler...and yes, I do know that 66 inches is a higher number than 58 inches. And, yes, I can read and write down the numbers correctly! I am a kindergarten teacher remember...and never you mind that we only use numbers up to as many fingers as we have. I hate it happened, BUT, it probably won't be the only thing I mess up. Not that I am planning to, mind you....but sometimes 'things' just happen. "Just gotta roll with it, Baby..."
This is the piece in question...but in distressed black.

I don't mean any disrespect by showing you this sign. I have had it for a while, and somehow...this seems like a good time to share it. I'm just saying...

I think this was a devious plan to get to buy MORE furniture....

You're so smart to choose pieces that can be used in any room. Rearranging furniture is inevitable.

OMGoodness...what am I getting myself into??? I think that piece is gorgeous and I know in distressed black...well, that is just perfect if you ask me... I must know where oh where you found it? I love it!! Too bad it won't fit where you originally wanted it (however, I do think some adjustments could have been made...wink, wink:)...but so glad it will work in your personal oasis...I am glad you get to keep it...and yes...what is the "BIG" deal...so it's off a few inches...don't those worker men have a saw and hammer???? men...hmmmmph...for sure!

Blessings...

Let me put it this way, it is FABULOUS. Besides, who needs rulers? Did you try it in the space you were planning? I had lots that I thought wouldn't fit, but once the room was actually done, it did. That piece is AWESOME! I miss you! andi
