Okay, don't worry.
I'm not up in the middle of the night because of pain. I had one of those weird dreams that are upsetting enough you don't want to go back to sleep (and I don't want to say out loud what it was about because I don't want it to come true, you know?) Just didn't want to go back to sleep and dream about it any more. I can continue dreams off and on all night between my potty and stretch breaks--and have even been known to have dreams continue on subsequent nights. Does anyone else do that? Anyways, I decided to get up and show you my new art table instead--LOL!
Caroline ended up asking if she could switch to today to clean--no problem. But I was all geared up to get the table together...so I decided to do it myself. The glass top was fairly heavy, but I was able to drag it over near the art spot with my good arm. (And--yes--I was careful about my back, hips, and knees--lol!)
The red legs were easy as pie. Just get all the packaging off of them and screw them in.
I figured if the table was too heavy to tip upright I would have left it for Caroline today, but I managed with the leg leverage and all. TaDa!!
It's quite a bit narrower than the old folding table I had been using...
...but I LOVE IT!!!
It is so much sturdier and less wobbly...and has a GLASS TOP!!
Of course, Miss Karma was supervising and inspecting every step of my work.
I am so excited to have a flat surface that should clean easily and not stain. Did I mention it has a GLASS TOP! ;)
Once we get the long black shelf under the wall unit it will be just perfect with supplies easily within reach and I will have a place to set a lot of small things to get them off the table while I am working. You know how we like to spread out...and this table isn't as wide...but the shelf will make up the difference. Leah will probably get that up next Tuesday. :) This is how it will look now when not in use.
When I am using the art table the taboret will now have to come out from under the table so my chair will fit...
...but that will give me a little additional surface space. That black glass top looks so barren, right?
I put everything back that I had been playing with.
Love my new little IKEA art table!!
Can't tell I am excited or anything.
I guess it is Karma approved, too.
Oh goodness! This is just like yesterday. Duh! It's Wednesday--and I could actually do What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday for the first time. So...I'll be right back.
Okay, I have my little art desk, but I also have my craft (and everything else) table--so I went and took a picture of what is on it right now.
Yup! You saw the enticing videos yesterday!
I dug out the crayons, glue gun, and canvases.
Melted crayon art is going to be in my near future.
Well, not today.
Unless I can manage to get some more sleep I am going to be nothing but a walking zombie all day.
Does anybody know how to get a glue stick out of a glue gun when you can't grab the end anymore? Or do I just have to use it up?
And now I will have to apologize to any of the participants of WOYWW who happen to stop by (please let me know your number) for not keeping this short. (Although this is actually on the short side for me--LOL!) You can go here and see what other people have on their workspaces today. :)
I'm not too tired to ogle my new art table all day.
Happy Wednesday!! :):)
