l i b r a r y    t a b l e

I have to start out this post saying thank you to everyone that emailed me about the blue dresser. It did go to a very good home and I am working on more projects right now. I am trying to balance painting furniture with "life".
 Last week my son was sick and now it is my turn to be sick. I gave myself a day off yesterday and today to have a "sick day" which I never do. I am they type of person who never sits down and relaxes. Partly because I am a mother to two young kids, and partly because I always feel like I need to be doing something.
My voice was totally lost yesterday, and my sweet husband is in France for work. Because I could not go with him, I decided to watch the final season of the Tudors ALL DAY. I dropped the kids off at school, got a tea, went home put my jammies back on {yes I call them jammies, I have two kids} put season four of the Tudors in the dvd and watched tv all day until I needed to pick up my kids. I haven't done this for ages, and you know what, I felt so much better when I woke up this morning. I am taking it easy again today. I will not get out into my garage office until the end of the week.
I did want to show you a fun little library table I found. I am not going to tell you how much I paid for it, that would make you mad {it was a STEAL}.

I am going to keep this piece and put it in my family room. I know some will be upset at me, but I am going to paint it, not sure what color yet. Aren't the drawers cool? I am going to keep the drawers out and use them for storage somewhere. I just like their shape and they would be hidden under the desk.

Ok, that was a long post for me. I need to go rest before I pick up my kids and the we are off to baseball for the next three hours.
