It is somewhatÂ embarrassingÂ that we have never seen fit to spend our money on new furniture and so we've been married 23 and a half years using donated tables or like the last one, a sweet deal we picked up at Sally Ann for 30 bucks.
Well, all that stopped last night and we bought one of the lesser priced (That will help us sleep tonight, honest) dinning tables from Ikea.
And today we read theÂ SwedishÂ pictures on the instructions andÂ managedÂ to create something useable. It took four of us but we made it eventually.
Our first meal on it?
Two pizzas from Pizza Hut, picked up hot and driven like a bat out of sheol for the 20 minutes home.
Our last meal on the last table, the cheap, solid, mismatched one we loved?
Together one last time around it.
