I am really enjoying this lovely snow day in Columbus. I am just waiting for a little bit of snow to fall! Luckily, the store is nice and warm and has an excellent view so that I can watch while the flakes fall.
I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and Hanukkah! Now it’s time to prep for Christmas and New Years. If youre entertaining, you MUST get here quickly. We have this insane mid century modern dining table with built in leaves. This table could EASILY fit 10 people….I hate to repeat myself, but thats just INSANE! Not only that but we have some serious statement chairs to match. Holy guacamole I might have peed myself, I love these chairs so much.
Oh there’s more to come to get you holiday ready! Keep checking into the blog for posts on gifts and holiday must haves. But in the meantime, get your butt to sign up for our DIY Decor Ladies Night Out. It’s going to be a lots of fun, and I promise, there will be wine.
Our Criss Cross table will do just that, make you jump for joy! It is classy yet creative and with a creamy white and grey criss cross pattern it goes well in most dining areas. Not only is it gorgeous, its affordable!! And the chairs…Brand new seats and a revamped look that make this dining set a MUST.
Make sure that you all stop by SATURDAY AUGUST 10 for out 3rd Revival!!!! We will have some INSANE deals on our furniture. Our Revival for a Cause for August is the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. For every piece sold $1 is donated!!

In furniture news, I just delivered a dresser and bedside table last week. Because my head is all over the place, I didn’t take any pictures of the before except for one of the drawers. That particular drawer gave me some trouble. There was one knob that wouldn’t budge. It did not want to come off! We tried everything, and even after we stripped the screw, we continued to try everything we could. Finally, I had to perform some surgery. We got the knob off with minimal damage and replaced it with one that looked exactly like it. I really like the color that they chose, the pieces looked beautiful in their house!

I am finally feeling more like myself! I don’t know what’s going on with my immune system but hopefully this is the last time this season that I get sick. On a positive note, we have successfully moved our workshop into our garage and entertained 10 people on Christmas Day! I am such an adult.
I told my friends that I would make them a table out of their old ottoman…in September. They told me there was no rush, and with the move and all, I have FINALLY finished it!! But I didn’t do it alone. This was a joint effort between Carl and I. Next time we work together, I am going to video it so that you can all see the hilarity that is our collaboration. There was a lot of “my foot, Leibow” and finger measuring. If you are not familiar with this method, it is when you measure things according to the length of you finger. Imagine Carl and I both measuring with our fingers, literally, and then arguing about who was right. It’s similar to when you are measuring yourself against someone else and kind of go on an incline so that you are “the same height” even though you are 4 inches shorter. Don’t worry, all final measurements were made with a real measuring device, aka a tape measure.
Back to the table. The concept for this table was to make it look and feel similar to the cushion they gave it to me as. They wanted it a dark wood and an open front for storage. Off we went…
Here is what they gave me to work with
We got some nice, stain grade wood, and began to plan. Here is what it came out to look like, before it got stained. We routed the top edge to soften the look a bit.
I stained it and put a coat of poly on it and then it was time to assemble. This is before the final coat of poly
Voila, the final product!!! I think it turned out pretty close to the vision, if not better!
