Anything new in our house that goes towards making it prettier is a BIG DEAL in our house. At least to me. Long story short, i got a big screen tv for christmas and swapped it for this table (picture from CB2 catalog)...it showed up yesterday and was assembled and everything by my sweet husband and it's so NICE and NEW. Our house is old and icky so to have this wonderful shiny and functional table is so exciting. (ironic because we are buying a beat up old antique for our entertainment center). It allows me to have a place to sit at my computer and have a space for myself while still adding something to the room and holding a few books and photos. I can't wait to get home and decorate that little nook of the house.
