This is what Felix was exploring in yesterday's post:
A ginormous hutch/buffet/dresser/cabinet thingy!
And that's not all...
There's a matching table with two leafs, table pads, and six swiveling chairs! All solid maple.
Mommy: I've been scouring Craigslist (an online sell-your-stuff website) since September, looking for something to store extra kitchen stuff, and last week I found just the thing. Originally I was looking for something either a) so badly beaten up it needed paint (a fun project) or b) something mid-century modern with a blonde finish. As you can see, I got neither of those things and couldn't be happier, especially since it only cost--get this--$200! I spotted it last Tuesday, called Scott to ask him what he thought, and when I got home from work it was here; Scott and his buddy Tee went and got it for me as a surprise. It needed some cleaning, and there's a few nicks and scratches to dab some finish on, but we both love it.
Salem supervised me putting dishes out--Spitty-the-Kitty, can you guess whose tail is doing the photobombing?
Salem: Can you believe this? I wake up from my post-mid-afternoonish nap to see my swain (Tee) and Daddy hauling this thing in the house!
You would think she'd never seen furniture before, Mommy was that excited.
In reality, it's just a kitty jungle gym and climbing frame.
It took Sweet Pea took about two seconds to suss out how to leap to the top of the dresser! Daddy had to set up a ladder to get her down
involuntarily and Mommy blocked access to any further vertically-oriented athletic endeavors.
The table is still fair game though...
...as are the chairs...there's a soft blanket on all of them, including the two in Daddy's office!
Mommy, we approve of your new purchase. It can stay.
