I don't know if you remember this post, but I finally completed the project(mostly). I checked IKEA daily
like a crazy person until they got the glossy tables in stock, and I drove down the day I got the glorious news that my babes were there!
The tables were easy enough to put together, but the blasted brass corners were a pain in my beeper.
The glaze/shellac made it SO hard to screw in the teeny tiny baby screws. I felt like a big dumb giant trying to tie a delicate bow.
I really love the look though, the corners really took it to the next level, if you know what I mean (smooth jazz music playing).
I still need to find some magical treasures, but that's all part of the JOURNEY.
Sidenote: If I ever hear the word journey again, I will want to stab eyes out. The Bachelor really ruined that word. "This journey to a helicopter ride & STD's has been so amazing."
